Els llibres de Patricia Cornwell, des del seu debut el 1990 amb “PostMortem” i sempre amb la detectiu forense Kay Scarpetta com a protagonista, han estat dels més venuts durant anys. Amb “Flesh and blood” l’autora tornà aconseguir un “best seller”.

G. K. Chesterton's Father Brown may seem a pleasantly doddering Roman Catholic priest, but appearances deceive. With keen observation and an unerring sense of man's frailties-gained during his years listening to confessions-Father Brown succeeds in bringing even the most elusive criminals to justice. This definitive collection of fifteen stories, selected by the American Chesterton Society, includes such classics as "The Blue Cross," "The Secret Garden," and "The Paradise of Thieves." As P. D. James writes in her Introduction, "We read the Father Brown stories for a variety pleasures, including their ingenuity, their wit and intelligence, and for the brilliance of the writing. But they provide more. Chesterton was concerned with the greatest of all problems, the vagaries of the human heart."
