Il romanzo che ha commosso il mondo Un romanzo unico tratto da una storia vera Francia, 1940. La guerra è ormai alle porte e i Wins, famiglia ebrea di origine polacca, rischiano di essere deportati. Alter, lo zio, è partito per la Polonia nel tentativo di salvare i suoi familiari, ma è stato preso e rinchiuso nel ghetto di Konskie. Il padre della piccola Charlotte vuole evitare che la sua famiglia subisca lo stesso destino, così si procura dei documenti falsi per raggiungere Parigi. Ma dopo soli quarantanove giorni si rende conto che la capitale non è più sicura e trasferisce tutti a Lione, sotto il governo collaborazionista di Vichy. Charlotte a volte esce di casa, e davanti ai binari guarda passare i treni carichi di ebrei deportati. Ben presto suo padre realizza che nemmeno Lione è il posto giusto per sfuggire alle persecuzioni e paga degli uomini affinché li aiutino a raggiungere la Svizzera. Un viaggio molto pericoloso, perché durante un incidente la famiglia Wins si troverà molto vicina alla linea nazista... Una fuga senza sosta, di città in città, per scampare al pericolo, sostenuta dalla volontà ferrea di un padre di salvare a tutti costi i propri cari.

A Boston Globe Best Book of the Year In this breakout standalone novel of suspense in the vein of Gone Girl and The Girl on a Train, a woman agrees to help an old boyfriend who has been framed for murder—but begins to suspect that she is the one being manipulated. Twenty years ago she ruined his life. Now she has the chance to save it. Widower Jack Harris has resisted the dating scene ever since the shooting of his wife Molly by a fifteen-year-old boy three years ago. An early morning run along the Hudson River changes that when he spots a woman in last night’s party dress, barefoot, enjoying a champagne picnic alone, reading his favorite novel. Everything about her reminds him of what he used to have with Molly. Eager to help Jack find love again, his best friend posts a message on a popular website after he mentions the encounter. Days later, that same beautiful stranger responds and invites Jack to meet her in person at the waterfront. That’s when Jack’s world falls apart. Olivia Randall is one of New York City’s best criminal defense lawyers. When she hears that her former fiancé, Jack Harris, has been arrested for a triple homicide—and that one of the victims was connected to his wife’s murder—there is no doubt in her mind as to his innocence. The only question is who would go to such great lengths to frame him—and why? For Olivia, representing Jack is a way to make up for past regrets, to absolve herself of guilt from a tragic decision, a secret she has held for twenty years. But as the evidence against him mounts, she is forced to confront her doubts. The man she knew could not have done this. But what if she never really knew him?

New York socialite Caroline Ferriday is busy with her post at the French consulate and a new love on the horizon. But Caroline's world is forever changed when Hitler's army invades Poland in September 1939-and then sets its sights on France. An ocean away from Caroline, Kasia Kuzmerick, a Polish teenager, senses her carefree youth disappearing as she is drawn deeper into her role as courier for the underground resistance movement. For the ambitious young German doctor, Herta Oberheuser, an ad for a government medical position seems her ticket out of a desolate life. Once hired, though, she finds herself trapped in a male-dominated realm of Nazi secrets and power. The lives of these three women collide when the unthinkable happens and Kasia is sent to Ravensbr3ck, the notorious Nazi concentration camp for women. Their stories cross continents-from New York to Paris, Germany, and Poland-as Caroline and Kasia strive to bring justice to those whom history has forgotten.

In this Georges Simenon classic, a Dutch clerk flees to Paris with his crooked boss’s money and meets the woman behind the man. “A certain furtive, almost shameful emotion . . . disturbed him whenever he saw a train go by, a night train especially, its blinds drawn down on the mystery of its passengers.” Kees Popinga is a respectable Dutch citizen and family man—until the day he discovers his boss has bankrupted the shipping firm he works for, and something snaps. Kees used to watch the trains go by on their way to exciting destinations. Now, on some dark impulse, he boards one at random, and begins a new life of recklessness and violence. This chilling portrayal of a man who breaks from society and goes on the run asks who we are, and what we are capable of.
