This is the story of Padre Salas, the most charismatic character from the bestselling novel Hell Calling, which dazzled thousands of readers across the globe, and has recently been adapted for cinema by Luis Endera. In this prequel, we discover what caused Padre Salas’ flight from Mexico, leading to his taking refuge in Madrid. We will encounter the terrifying cases of multiple possessions of several girls in towns and villages around Guadalajara (Mexico). This is a novel filled with moments of excitement, tension, and no shortage of fear, guaranteed to captivate all those who love the genre. Extract from Chapter 1: The girl had spent the entire night howling. It was a visceral noise, more commonly associated with a wild animal, than the gaunt, virtually emaciated body of a little girl, who was barely ten years old. She lay curled up on a rough bed, which had been thrown together out of lumpy sacks of hay. Her parents, more out of desperation than resentment or fear, had confined her to a shed, which they used mainly for keeping the rain off the farming tools, and for storing a few low-value belongings that they had inherited over the years from different family members. The doctor approached the child with apprehension; she seemed to be sleeping, although her breathing was broken by a constant shaking that was not of human origin. “How many days has she been lying in this state?” “A... a week...” the mother dared to say, certain that she was about to receive an immediate reprimand from the doctor. The doctor heaved a sigh of resignation and, picking up the girl’s hand, he tried to measure her pulse. He felt a shiver run down his spine as he noticed that her heart was hardly beating at all... little more than 20 beats per minute! It was completely impossible.

Carlos, a successful businessman, receives the worst of all possible news: his wife and daughter have just been killed in a car accident. Feeling guilty at not having spent enough time with his daughter, Laura, he embarks upon a search for redemption, in which he resolves to find out more about the daughter now lost to him. Carlos is astonished as he begins to learn increasingly more about Laura’s life from her schoolteacher, her psychologist, and her friends, and he begins to suspect that perhaps she was not the loving little girl he thought she was; that behind her friendly face, terrible secrets were hidden. After several nights of hearing strange noises emanating from his radio-alarm clock, Laura begins to ask for his help... from the depths of Hell itself. From that moment on, Carlos will begin a chilling adventure he will wish he had never started... *Now a feature-length film in Spanish, under the original title of ‘Desde el Infierno’, premiered in 2014.

Mind of Steel and Clay: Camille Claudel is a diary. Through the guilt-ridden words of Edouard Faret, Director of the psychiatric hospital of Montdevergues, we are drawn into to the life of an exceptional woman, Camille Claudel. In the 19th century, Camille was an unrivalled sculptress and both the student and lover of Auguste Rodin. She wanted to make a name for herself in a world of men, to achieve the fame and prestige that her work deserved, but this never came to pass. In 1913, after the death of her adored father, her family committed her by force to an asylum. There she would stay, locked up against her will for 30 years until her death, despite the doctors and others who argued in defence of her sanity. Mind of Steel and Clay: Camille Claudel tells the tragic tale of an extraordinary woman, an artistic genius whose fate was sealed with misfortune. For the first time ever, the dark, unknown years of Camille's confinement, an era shrouded in mystery, are revealed and explored in great depth. Through his diary, the Medical Director of the psychiatric hospital describes the years of confinement of the sculptress Camille Claudel. This bloody, ruthless account is teamed with the hardship of the Vichy France regime in World War II, yet is dappled with moments of inspiring hope; art, passion, guilt, madness and genius are at the forefront of this short novel. Perhaps Enrique Laso's most acclaimed and profound novel to date, the author's admiration for Camille shines through, whilst on countless occasions he shares in her rage against the injustice of a world in which the cruel and deplorable are allowed to win.

Edgar Award-winner Harlan Coben brings us his most astonishing—and deeply personal—novel yet. And it all begins when Myron Bolitar's ex tells him he's a father ... of a dying thirteen-year-old boy. Myron never saw it coming. A surprise visit from an ex-girlfriend is unsettling enough. But Emily Downing's news brings him to his knees. Her son Jeremy is dying and needs a bone-marrow transplant—from a donor who has vanished without a trace. Then comes the real shocker: The boy is Myron's son, conceived the night before her wedding to another man. Staggered by the news, Myron plunges into a search for the missing donor. But finding him means cracking open a dark mystery that involves a broken family, a brutal kidnapping spree, and the FBI. Somewhere in the sordid mess is the donor who disappeared. And as doubts emerge about Jeremy's true paternity, a child vanishes, igniting a chain reaction of heartbreaking truth and chilling revelation. From the Paperback edition.

R: Es una mezcla de muchas cosas realmente. Cuando comencé a escribirlos, quería crear algo que mostrara el tipo de libros y series de televisión que me gusta leer. Los géneros que más me apasionan son las novelas de misterio con giros inesperados que te van soltando una pista tras otra y tu vas haciendo tus teorías, todo ello con una mezcla de fantasía y drama sobrenatural.

Y a decir verdad, hay cosas muy satisfactorias dentro que el lector disfrutará cuando llegue a ellas, y otras que jamás verá venir cómo los conocidos giros inesperados. P: Cuéntame, ¿Cómo es el caso del misterio sobrenatural? R: La idea nació hace tres años, justo cuando yo quería darle un toque de misterio a la historia. Anteriormente yo le llamaba los Protectores y es una historia que comencé a escribir hace más de diez años así que digamos esa chispa de misterio llegó gracias a varias series de televisión que estaba viendo y uno que otro libro que leí por ahí. P: ¿Cómo defines esta historia? ¿A quien está dirigida? R: Secretos del Pasado es el inicio de todo. Pero así mismo, es el descubrimiento de algunas cosas que sucedieron mucho antes. He hecho una mezcla de mis series favoritas de TV, así que este libro va dirigido a las personas que les encanten las novelas de fantasía, magia, los libros de suspenso y las novelas de misterio. ¡Y gracias por leer!

She helps people put their demons to rest. But she has a few of her own... In the lockdown ward of a psychiatric hospital, Dr. Nadine Lavoie is in her element. She has the tools to help people, and she has the desire—healing broken families is what she lives for. But Nadine doesn't want to look too closely at her own past because there are whole chunks of her life that are black holes. It takes all her willpower to tamp down her recurrent claustrophobia, and her daughter, Lisa, is a runaway who has been on the streets for seven years. When a distraught woman, Heather Simeon, is brought into the Psychiatric Intensive Care Unit after a suicide attempt, Nadine gently coaxes her story out of her—and learns of some troubling parallels with her own life. Digging deeper, Nadine is forced to confront her traumatic childhood, and the damage that began when she and her brother were brought by their mother to a remote commune on Vancouver Island. What happened to Nadine? Why was their family destroyed? And why does the name Aaron Quinn, the group's leader, bring complex feelings of terror to Nadine even today? And then, the unthinkable happens, and Nadine realizes that danger is closer to home than she ever imagined. She has no choice but to face what terrifies her the most...and fight back. Sometimes you can leave the past, but you can never escape. Told with the trademark powerful storytelling that has had critics praising her work as "Gripping" (Kirkus), "Jaw-dropping" (Publishers Weekly) and "Crackling with suspense" (People magazine), ALWAYS WATCHING shows why Chevy Stevens is one of the most mesmerizing new talents of our day.

Arguably one of Italy’s greatest contemporary writers, Natalia Ginzburg has been best known in America as a writer’s writer, quiet beloved of her fellow wordsmiths. This collection of personal essays chosen by the eminent American writer Lynne Sharon Schwartz from four of Ginzburg’s books written over the course of Ginzburg’s lifetime was a many-years long project for Schwartz. These essays are deeply felt, but also disarmingly accessible. Full of self-doubt and searing insight, Ginzburg is merciless in her attempts to describe herself and her world—and yet paradoxically, her self-deprecating remarks reveal her deeper confidence in her own eye and writing ability, as well as the weight and nuance of her exploration of the conflict between humane values and bureaucratic rigidity.
