En aquesta vuitena entrega de la sèrie del ex policia Miquel Mascarell, Jordi Sierra i Fabra ens endinsa en una trama tant intensa com adictiva que delectarà qualsevol lector de novel·la negra. Són els anys cinquanta, l'inspector Mascarell i la seva dona, la Patro, estan a punt de ser pares quan Barcelona està immersa en un període d'agitació social a causa de l'augment del preu del tramvia. Un dia, en Pere Humet, un antic subordinat d'en Mascarell d'abans de la guerra, li explica que en Piñol, l'Arnella i en Matarrodona, tres policies que també havien estat a les ordres de l'exinspector van marxar junts a l'exili, al camp de refugiats d'Argelers, i després van treballar en el reforç de la Línia Maginot, fins que els alemanys els van enviar a Mauthausen. Tots tres van sobreviure, amb penes i treballs, a aquell infern fins que el capritx d'un oficial alemany va desencadenar l'horror, va obligar en Piñol a matar l'Arnella d'un tret al cap. Tot seguit el va obligar a fer el mateix a l'Humet, però la pistola només tenia una bala: l'Humet es va salvar i va jurar venjar-se d'en Piñol, que va començar a col·laborar amb els alemanys i va ser el responsable de la mort dels altres presoners. L'Humet confessa a en Mascarell que ha tornat a Barcelona perquè sap que en Piñol és a la capital catalana i vol fer justícia. També li explica que té un càncer i no li queda gaire temps de vida. En Miquel accepta ajudar-lo i el convida l'endemà a dinar a casa seva, però l'Humet no s'hi presenta. Quan l'inspector va a buscar-lo, troba el cadàver de l'antic company i el de la seva cosina, que han mort apunyalats. L'acusat és en Nicolau, l'exnòvio de la noia, però l'instint de policia d'en Mascarell li diu que en Nicolau no és el culpable. Ressenyes: «Sierra i Fabra explica la vida d'aquesta ciutat. Els petits costums i el tracte diari: els taxistes, les porteres [...]. Tan de bo tinguem en Mascarell per molt de tems. És història viva.» Lilian Neuman, Cultura/s de La Vanguardia «Una història ben construïda que es desenvolupa amb senzillesa, amb un estil fresc, directe, un ritme àgil i una intriga que l'autor dosifica de manera convenient per mantenir al lector enganxat fins a arribar al final de la lectura.» Blog Me gustan los libros

The Catalan modern classic, first published in 1985, now in its 50th edition, for the first time in English. The beginning of the 20th century: 13-year-old Conxa leaves her home village in the Pyrenees to work for her childless aunt. After years of hardship she finds love with Jaume - a love that will be thwarted by the Spanish Civil War. Approaching her own death, Conxa looks back on a life in which she has lost everything except her own indomitable spirit. Why Peirene chose to publish this book: ‘I fell in love with Conxa's narrative voice, its stoic calmness and the complete lack of anger and bitterness. It's a timeless voice, down to earth and full of human contradictory nuances. It's the expression of someone who searches for understanding in a changing world but senses that ultimately there may be no such thing.’ Meike Ziervogel ‘Sparse and haunting.’ Katy Guest, Independent ‘The compression is so deft, the young narrator's voice so strong, so particular, her straightforward evocation of the hard labour and rare pleasures of mountain life . . . so vibrant, that it makes me want to take scissors to everything else I read.’ Richard Lea, Guardian ‘A Pyrenean life told in a quietly effective voice.’ Daniel Hahn, Independent ‘There is an understated power in Barbal’s depiction of how the forces of history can shape the life of the powerless.’ Adrian Turpin, Financial Times ‘A masterpiece of world literature and a shining example of the virtuosity of elegant and concise prose.’ Pam Norfolk, Lancashire Evening Post ‘Air-tight believability.’ Matthew Tree, Times Literary Supplement ​ INDEPENDENT BOOKS OF THE YEAR 2010 FOYLES BOOKS OF THE YEAR 2010

In Luca D’Andrea’s atmospheric and brilliant thriller, set in a small mountain community in the majestic Italian Dolomites, an outsider must uncover the truth about a triple murder that has gone unsolved for thirty years. New York City native Jeremiah Salinger is one half of a hot-shot documentary-making team. He and his partner, Mike, made a reality show about roadies that skyrocketed them to fame. But now Salinger’s left that all behind, to move with his wife, Annelise, and young daughter, Clara, to the remote part of Italy where Annelise grew up—the Alto Adige. Nestled in the Dolomites, this breathtaking, rural region that was once part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire remains more Austro than Italian. Locals speak a strange, ancient dialect—Ladino—and root for Germany (against Italy) in the world cup. Annelise’s small town—Siebenhoch—is close-knit to say the least and does not take kindly to out-of-towners. When Salinger decides to make a documentary about the mountain rescue group, the mission goes horribly awry, leaving him the only survivor. He blames himself, and so—it seems—does everyone else in Siebenhoch. Spiraling into a deep depression, he begins having terrible, recurrent nightmares. Only his little girl Clara can put a smile on his face. But when he takes Clara to the Bletterbach Gorge—a canyon rich in fossil remains—he accidentally overhears a conversation that gives his life renewed focus. In 1985, three students were murdered there, their bodies savaged, limbs severed and strewn by a killer who was never found. Although Salinger knows this is a tightlipped community, one where he is definitely persona non grata, he becomes obsessed with solving this mystery and is convinced it is all that can keep him sane. And as Salinger unearths the long kept secrets of this small town, one by one, the terrifying truth is eventually revealed about the horrifying crime that marked an entire village. Completely engrossing and deeply atmospheric, Beneath The Mountain is a thriller par excellence. “Can be compared (with no fear of hyperbole) to Stephen King and Jo Nesbø.”—La Repubblica
