Vraždy a housle


Před deseti lety byly Vraždy a housle přelomovým dílem. Dnes je to klasika. Vypravěč příběhu vzpomíná na to, jak se v dětství setkal se starým osteopatem, někdejším léčitelem Ala Caponeho. A pak poznenáhlu Anglie šedesátých let začíná splývat s Chicagem let dvacátých v úchvatně nakresleném příběhu o paměti a zlu.

Záhrobná kniha


Každý cintorín je plný preludov a duchov mŕtvych. Živí aj mŕtvi majú svoj svet. Tieto svety by sa nemali prelínať. V jednu noc sa však hranica medzi nimi poruší. Z domu, kde vrah zanechá tri mŕtve telá, štvornožky vyjde malé dieťa a vedené inštinktom sa v polnočnej tme vyberie hľadať útočisko na starodávnom cintoríne. Tam si nájde nových rodičov – múdreho pestúna Silasa a prísnu učiteľku Lupescovú – a začne žiť nový život, preniká do tajomstiev tajuplného prostredia a jeho obyvateľov, až napokon odhalí aj vraha svojich rodičov. Majster slova Neil Gaiman prináša čitateľom magický príbeh o živote a smrti, o láske a dospievaní, o nájdení novej rodiny na tom najzáhadnejšom mieste. Mrazivý príbeh plný mágie a tajomnej atmosféry cintorína, kde ticho okrem vo vetre šumiaceho lístia a lepkavej tmy zachádzajúcej pod nechty narúša aj život jeho právoplatných obyvateľov...
