"L'homme, il le percute précisément au moment où il songe que c'est la plus belle lune qu'il a vue de sa vie." Le Dr Ethan Green est un homme bien. Il sauve des vies. Il aime sa femme. Il adore ses deux petits garçons. Le Dr Ethan Green a de la chance : il est né du bon côté. Cette nuit-là, pourtant, le neurochirurgien prend la fuite après avoir percuté un homme sur une route, dans le désert. Le lendemain, la femme de la victime se présente à la villa du médecin : elle a tout vu. Sirkitt, qui partage une caravane avec d'autres clandestins soudanais ou érythréens, découvre un monde de confort. Cependant, ce qu'elle exige d'Ethan en échange de son silence ne se quantifie pas en argent... Alors que l'enquête sur le chauffard est confiée à son épouse, inspecteur de police, Ethan Green s'engouffre dans la mécanique de la double vie, sur fond de trafics, de violences – et de désirs inavouables. Après Une nuit, Markovitch, l'espoir de la littérature israélienne revient avec un thriller humanitaire qui plonge le lecteur au coeur d'un monde méconnu. Concerto pour trois voix capiteux et tendu, Réveiller les lions fait jaillir un chant âpre et sombre mais irradié d'empathie, qui en dit autant sur les failles d'un pays que sur celles d'un couple – un roman dérangeant et engagé qui en dit moins sur ce qui oppose les hommes que sur ce qui les lie.

In this stunning, bestselling novel—and an NBCC Award finalist—David Grossman tells the powerful story of a mother’s love for her son. Just before his release from service in the Israeli army, Ora’s son Ofer is sent back to the front for a major offensive. In a fit of preemptive grief and magical thinking, so that no bad news can reach her, Ora sets out on an epic hike in the Galilee. She is joined by an unlikely companion—Avram, a former friend and lover with a troubled past—and as they sleep out in the hills, Ora begins to conjure her son. Ofer’s story, as told by Ora, becomes a surprising balm both for her and for Avram—and a mother’s haunting meditation on war and family.

“Miss Rook, I am not an occultist,” Jackaby said. “I have a gift that allows me to see truth where others see the illusion--and there are many illusions. All the world's a stage, as they say, and I seem to have the only seat in the house with a view behind the curtain.” A Kirkus Reviews Best Teen Book of 2014 #3 on the Fall 14 Kids' Indie Next List A PNBA Best Book of 2014 Newly arrived in New Fiddleham, New England, 1892, and in need of a job,Abigail Rook meets R. F. Jackaby, an investigator of the unexplained with a keen eye for the extraordinary--including the ability to see supernatural beings. Abigail has a gift for noticing ordinary but important details, which makes her perfect for the position of Jackaby's assistant. On her first day, Abigail finds herself in the midst of a thrilling case: A serial killer is on the loose. The police are convinced it's an ordinary villain, but Jackaby is certain it's a nonhuman creature, whose existence the police--with the exception of a handsome young detective named Charlie Cane--deny. Doctor Who meets Sherlock in a debut novel, the first in a series, brimming with cheeky humor and a dose of the macabre. “The rich world of this debut demands sequels.” —Kirkus Reviews, starred review
