Un autore da 250.000 copie Il libro segreto di Dante - La profezia perduta di Dante 2 romanzi in 1 La rivelazione del giallo storico italiano Intrighi, teoremi, sorprendenti rivelazioni e brutali delitti. Francesco Fioretti, basandosi sul poema più importante di tutti i tempi, costruisce ad arte due gialli storici che tengono il lettore con il fiato sospeso fino alla fine. Ne Il libro segreto di Dante, la figlia del poeta, suor Beatrice, un ex templare di nome Bernard e un medico, Giovanni da Lucca, nutrono l’atroce sospetto che la morte di Alighieri non sia stata provocata dalla malaria, bensì sia avvenuta per mano di qualcuno che desiderava nascondere un segreto. Iniziano così una doppia indagine: mentre cercano con fatica di decifrare un messaggio in codice lasciato da Dante su nove fogli di pergamena, si mettono sulle tracce dei suoi presunti assassini. Non sarà facile trovare la chiave del segreto occultato nella Commedia e scoprire chi voleva impedire che l’opera fosse terminata. La profezia perduta di Dante, invece, ci fa incontrare un Alighieri ancora diciottenne che, insieme al fraterno amico Guido Cavalcanti, si ritrova alle prese con un brutale omicidio: due cadaveri abbracciati nel rigor mortis, trafitti da un unico colpo di spada. Sono Paolo e Francesca. Dante e Guido sospettano subito di Gianciotto, marito di Francesca e fratello maggiore di Paolo. Ma la verità pare essere meno scontata... Sarà Dante a sciogliere l’enigma, prima di immortalarlo nei versi più belli della Divina Commedia.

One man, born in rural obscurity, destined to become one of Rome's greatest Emperors26 AD: 16-year-old Vespasian leaves his family farm for Rome, his sights set on finding a patron and following his brother into the army, but he discovers a city in turmoil and an Empire on the brink. The aging emperor Tiberius is in seclusion on Capri, leaving Rome in the iron grip of Sejanus, commander of the Praetorian Guard. Sejanus is ruler of the Empire in all but name, but many fear that isn't enough for him. Sejanus' spies are everywhere—careless words at a dinner party can be as dangerous as a barbarian arrow. Vespasian is totally out of his depth, making dangerous enemies (and even more dangerous friends—like the young Caligula) and soon finds himself ensnared in a conspiracy against Tiberius. With the situation in Rome deteriorating, Vespasian flees the city to take up a position as tribune in an unfashionable legion on the Balkan frontier. Even here, rebellion is in the air and unblooded and inexperienced, Vespasian must lead his men in savage battle with hostile mountain tribes. Vespasian will soon realize that he can't escape Roman politics any more than he can escape his destiny.

An ancient sect. A modern mystery. The most dangerous secret ever unearthed. The bestselling author of The Lost Testament returns with the first novel in a thrilling new series about the powerful secrets of the Knights Templar, and a conspiracy too shocking to believe. In a quiet English seaside town, antiquarian bookseller Robin Jessop has acquired an odd medieval volume. What appears to be a book isn’t a book at all, but a cleverly disguised safe, in which she finds a single rolled parchment, written in code. For encryption expert David Mallory, the text is impenetrable. Until an invaluable clue opens the door to a mystery, and a conspiracy, stretching back seven centuries, when the most powerful man in Europe declared war on the most powerful military order, the Knights Templar. Now Jessop and Mallory find themselves on a global hunt for an unsurpassed treasure, and this much closer to unlocking the secrets that could change history, topple an empire, and bury them both alive. Because soon they’re not only the hunters. They’re also the hunted. Praise for James Becker ‘[Becker’s] intelligent mixture of fact with fiction really hits the spot and gets your adrenaline racing.

The Ciano Diaries are one of the most important documents recording the events taking place in Europe leading up to the Second World War and how they effected the rest of the world. Galezzo Ciano was in the forefront of those momentous events, not only because he happened to be Mussolini's son in law, but most important because at the age of 35 he was also Italy's Minister of Foreign Affairs and one of the major proponents of the Axis Alliance with Nazi Germany.

Dino Campagni's classic chronicle gives a detailed account of a crucial period in the history of Florence, beginning about 1280 and ending in the first decade of the fourteenth century. During that time Florence was one of the largest cities in Europe and a center of commerce and culture. Its gold florin was the standard international currency; Giotto was revolutionizing the art of painting; Dante Alighieri and Guido Cavalcanti were transforming the vernacular love lyric. The era was marked as well by political turmoil and factional strife. The inexorable escalation of violence, as insult and reprisal led to arson and murder, provides the bitter content of Compagni's story. Dino Compagni was perfectly placed to observe the political turmoil. A successful merchant, a prominent member of the silk guild, an active member of the government. Gompagni—like Dante—sided with the Whites and, after their defeat in 1301, was barred from public office. He lived the rest of his life as an exile in his own city, mulling over the events that had led to the defeat of his party. This chronicle, the fruit of his observation and reflection, studies the damage wrought by uncontrolled factional strife, the causes of conflict, the connections between events, and the motives of the participants. Compagni judges passionately and harshly. Daniel Bornstein supplements his lucid translation with and extensive historical introduction and explanatory notes.

Nearly one hundred years ago, a desperate young woman crawled ashore on a desolate arctic island, carrying a terrible secret and a mysterious, emerald-encrusted cross. A century later, acts of man, nature, and history converge on that same forbidding shore with a power sufficient to shatter civilization as we know it. Army epidemiologist Frank Slater is facing a court-martial, but after his punishment is mysteriously lifted, Slater is offered a job no one else wants—to travel to a small island off the coast of Alaska and investigate a potentially lethal phenomenon: The permafrost has begun to melt, exposing bodies from a colony that was wiped out by the dreaded Spanish flu of 1918. Frank must determine if the thawed remains still carry the deadly virus in their frozen flesh and, if so, ensure that it doesn’t come back to life. Frank and his handpicked team arrive by helicopter, loaded down with high-tech tools, prepared to exhume history. The colony, it transpires, was once settled by a sect devoted to the mad Russian monk Rasputin, but there is even more hiding in the past than Frank’s team is aware of. Any hope of success hinges on their willingness to accept the fact that even their cutting-edge science has its limits—and that the ancient wisdom of the Inuit people who once inhabited this eerie land is as essential as any serum. By the time Frank discovers that his mission has been compromised—crashed by a gang of reckless treasure hunters—he will be in a brutal race against time. With a young, strong-willed Inuit woman by his side, Frank must put a deadly genie back in the bottle before all of humanity pays the price. The Romanov Cross is at once an alternate take on one of history’s most profound mysteries, a love story as unlikely as it is inevitable, and a thriller of heart-stopping, supernatural suspense. With his signature blend of fascinating history and fantastic imagination, critically acclaimed author Robert Masello has once again crafted a terrifying story of past events coming back to haunt the present day . . . and of dark deeds aching to be unearthed. Praise for The Romanov Cross “In this fascinating, funny, and frightening supernatural thriller, [Robert] Masello skillfully weaves together the story of the deaths of the Russian royal family with the possibility of a new worldwide influenza pandemic. . . . Toss in a pack of slavering wolves, the undead, and a chilling ending, and the result is a terrific, can’t-put-it-down read. Fine prose and plotting help solidify Masello’s position at the top of this crowded subgenre.”—Publishers Weekly “A former Army epidemiologist contends with greedy locals and the harsh Alaskan terrain in order to prevent the recurrence of a deadly pandemic. . . . Masello weaves several disparate genres—medical thriller, historical novel, ghost story—into a coherent whole. A delicious sense of creeping dread permeates the first act, greatly enhanced by its setting in the stark but beautiful landscape of northwestern Alaska. . . . Tense, taut and impossible to put down.”—Kirkus Reviews (starred review) From the Hardcover edition.

Fifteenth-century Venice is a dangerous time to be alive. A permanent winter has rolled in over the canals and bodies keep washing up on the banks of the city. Each victim has been skinned. In the present day, a famous portrait by Titian has been discovered. Its subject: the Fifteenth-century suspected murderer Angelico Vespucci, known as The Skin Hunter. Leading New York dealer, Triumph Jones, encourages the rumor that "when the portrait arises, so will the man." And when flayed bodies start turning up in Tokyo, London and Venice, it begins to look like more than just a superstition. Previously a location finder for the film industry, Nino Bergstrom has just recovered from a serious illness. As a favor to the friend who helped him, the dealer, Gasser Reni, he investigates the murder and flaying of Seraphina Morgan. In Venice he comes across Seraphinaâ??s louche husband and the flamboyant Johnny Ravenscourt, moving onto Tokyo where he encounters the Japanese dealer of the macabre, Jobo Kido. As the dealers vie to get their hands on the Titian portrait--some for its beauty, others for its notoriety as being the first portrait of a serial killer--each becomes a suspect. And then Nino makes the connection between the Fifteenth century murderer and his Twenty-first-century imitator. Each of the contemporary century victims had something in common with their Fifteenth-century counterpart. Further investigations lead Nino deeper into the depraved world of Angelico Vespucci, the original Skin Hunter. Then, after the deaths and mutilation of three women--on the anniversaries of Vespucciâ??s crimes â?? Nino realizes that the date for the fourth killing is due. He has to find the last victim and save her. And he has only ten days to do it.

A precursor and companion to Erich Auerbach's majestic Mimesis, Dante: Poet of the Secular World is both a comprehensive introduction to the work of one of the greatest poets and a brilliantly provocative and stimulating essay in the history of ideas. Here Auerbach, acclaimed by writers and scholars as various as Terry Eagleton, Guy Davenport, and Alfred Kazin as one of the greatest critics of the twentieth century, argues paradoxically but powerfully that it is to Dante, supreme among Christian poets, that we owe the concept of the secular world. Dante's poetry, Auerbach shows, offers an extraordinary synthesis of the sensuous and the conceptual, and individual and the universal, that redefined notions of human character and fate and opened the way intomodernity.
