The perfect marriage? Or the perfect lie?

“A hair-raising debut, both unsettling and addictive...A chilling thriller that will keep you reading long into the night.” —Mary Kubica, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of The Good Girl

“This is one readers won’t be able to put down.” —Booklist (starred review)

"A can’t-put-down psychological thriller.” —Library Journal (starred review)

“This debut is guaranteed to haunt you...Warning: brace yourself.” —Bustle (10 New Thrillers to Read This Summer)

Everyone knows a couple like Jack and Grace. He has looks and wealth; she has charm and elegance. He’s a dedicated attorney who has never lost a case; she is a flawless homemaker, a masterful gardener and cook, and dotes on her disabled younger sister. Though they are still newlyweds, they seem to have it all. You might not want to like them, but you do. You’re hopelessly charmed by the ease and comfort of their home, by the graciousness of the dinner parties they throw. You’d like to get to know Grace better.

But it’s difficult, because you realize Jack and Grace are inseparable.

Some might call this true love. Others might wonder why Grace never answers the phone. Or why she can never meet for coffee, even though she doesn’t work. How she can cook such elaborate meals but remain so slim. Or why she never seems to take anything with her when she leaves the house, not even a pen. Or why there are such high-security metal shutters on all the downstairs windows.

Some might wonder what’s really going on once the dinner party is over, and the front door has closed.

From bestselling author B. A. Paris comes the gripping thriller and international phenomenon Behind Closed Doors.

The #1 New York Times Bestseller (October 2017) from the author of The Da Vinci Code.
 
Bilbao, Spain
 
Robert Langdon, Harvard professor of symbology and religious iconology, arrives at the ultramodern Guggenheim Museum Bilbao to attend a major announcement—the unveiling of a discovery that “will change the face of science forever.” The evening’s host is Edmond Kirsch, a forty-year-old billionaire and futurist whose dazzling high-tech inventions and audacious predictions have made him a renowned global figure. Kirsch, who was one of Langdon’s first students at Harvard two decades earlier, is about to reveal an astonishing breakthrough . . . one that will answer two of the fundamental questions of human existence.
     As the event begins, Langdon and several hundred guests find themselves captivated by an utterly original presentation, which Langdon realizes will be far more controversial than he ever imagined. But the meticulously orchestrated evening suddenly erupts into chaos, and Kirsch’s precious discovery teeters on the brink of being lost forever. Reeling and facing an imminent threat, Langdon is forced into a desperate bid to escape Bilbao. With him is Ambra Vidal, the elegant museum director who worked with Kirsch to stage the provocative event. Together they flee to Barcelona on a perilous quest to locate a cryptic password that will unlock Kirsch’s secret.
     Navigating the dark corridors of hidden history and extreme religion, Langdon and Vidal must evade a tormented enemy whose all-knowing power seems to emanate from Spain’s Royal Palace itself . . . and who will stop at nothing to silence Edmond Kirsch. On a trail marked by modern art and enigmatic symbols, Langdon and Vidal uncover clues that ultimately bring them face-to-face with Kirsch’s shocking discovery . . . and the breathtaking truth that has long eluded us.
 
Origin is stunningly inventive—Dan Brown's most brilliant and entertaining novel to date.
**Questo libro (260 pagine) è parte di una serie in due volumi. NON È IL ROMANZO COMPLETO.  Carpe DiEmily Parti 1 & 2 (540 pagine) può essere acquistato separatamente a € 3,55.** 18+ Adatto ad un pubblico adulto per il linguaggio usato e l'umorismo esplicito

Emily Keane ha pianificato tutto. Ha sempre giocato secondo le regole, non è mai uscita dagli schemi e finalmente sarà ricompensata con tutto ciò che ha sempre sognato: una promozione al lavoro, un fidanzato e un futuro su cui contare. Ma, quando il suo programma perfetto cade in pezzi, la ragazza precipita di colpo, e a malincuore, nel periodo più sfrenato della propria esistenza.
Dalle spiagge della California alla Giamaica, fino a New York e all'Europa, Emily trova se stessa durante una folle corsa contro il tempo, scappando da un broker di organi senza scrupoli che la vuole morta; il tutto mentre spunta le voci della sua insolita lista di cose da fare prima di morire. Oltretutto, si sta innamorando della persona sbagliata, un uomo da sogno che non potrà mai ricambiare i suoi sentimenti . . .  la sua amicizia le basterà? Affrontando un’esilarante disavventura dopo l’altra, Emily alla fine scopre chi sia veramente e impara a cogliere l’attimo . . .

Carpe DiEmily è una commedia coraggiosa e divertente, sulla vena di film dissacranti come “Le amiche della sposa”, cui è stata favorevolmente paragonata, che vi farà ridere ad alta voce; ma è anche la storia intensa di una ragazza prudente, tradizionalista, repressa, alla ricerca della vera se stessa e del suo unico, vero amore, che vi commuoverà e vi farà sognare.

Is that too much to ask? If all goes right, my quest will lead me into the arms of my perfect match...or will it?
