Génocide. Ce néologisme, créé par Rafael Lemkin en 1943 pour signifier la destruction des Juifs d'Europe, assassinés pour ce qu'ils étaient, n'appartient hélas pas au passé. Avant la Shoah, le monde avait été témoin du génocide des Arméniens en 1915 ; plus près de nous, en 1994, les Tutsi furent également les victimes de ces destructions de masse. Yves Ternon s'est consacré depuis les années 1960 à l'étude de la médecine allemande sous le national-socialisme. Il est depuis devenu un historien de premier plan sur la question du crime de génocide. Cet ouvrage, qui constitue la synthèse de ses recherches sur la question, est consacré dans un premier temps à "décortiquer "les sources idéologiques, juridiques et historiques ; dans un second temps, aux paramètres ayant conduit à leur application visant à la destruction du peuple arménien de l'Empire ottoman, des Juifs d'Europe et des Tutsi du Rwanda. La préface de l'historienne Annette Becker revient sur le parcours d'Yves Ternon, parcours ayant abouti à cette réflexion autour de la genèse du racisme biologique et du crime de génocide. Une réflexion nécessaire à l'heure où le monde est de nouveau plongé dans d'autres formes de violences.

Le grand retour d'Elizabeth George ! Ce livre événement a déjà été consacré par les Américains comme l'un de ses chefs-d'oeuvre. Londres. A l'arrière d'un bus qui traverse la ville, le jeune Joel, sa soeur et son frère roulent vers leur destin. Dans un quartier chic, Helen Lynley rentre chez elle. Elle est belle, heureuse, la vie lui sourit. Tout est en place pour une rencontre. Inexorablement fatale. Car, même s'il l'ignore, Joel est une arme vivante. Le détonateur, c'est son histoire, le chaos qu'on lui a donné pour tout bagage. L'explosif ? C'est son quartier, écrasé par la misère et la violence qu'elle génère. Jusqu'au dernier moment, Joel pense qu'il pourra choisir. Mais d'autres ont peut-être déjà choisi pour lui... Le nouveau roman d'Elizabeth George est beaucoup plus qu'une enquête : le récit passionnant d'un engrenage implacable. Elle sait comme nul autre nous faire emboîter le pas de son personnage, nous placer avec lui à la croisée des chemins. Le quel va-t-il prendre ? Où sont les issues, et y en a-t-il jamais eu ? Un roman noir, plus que jamais ancré dans son époque et ses bouleversements. Une extraordinaire machine à remonter le crime. Et à le démonter.

The brutal, inexplicable death of Inspector Thomas Lynley's wife has left Scotland Yard shocked and searching for answers. Even more horrifying is that the trigger was apparently pulled by a twelve-year-old boy. Who is he? Where did he come from? And what were the circumstances that led to his final act of desperation? That story begins on the other side of London, in rough North Kensington, where the three mixed-race, virtually orphaned Campbell children are bounced first from their grandmother then to their aunt. The oldest, fifteen-year-old Ness, is headed for trouble as fast as her high-heeled boots will take her. That leaves the middle child, Joel, to care for the youngest, Toby. No one wants to put it into words, but something clearly isn't right with Toby. Before long, there are signs that Joel himself has problems. A local gang starts harassing him and threatening his brother. To protect his family, Joel makes a pact with the devil—a move that leads straight to the front doorstep of Thomas Lynley. The anatomy of a murder, the story of a family in crisis, What Came Before He Shot Her is a powerful, emotional novel full of deep psychological insights, a novel that only the incomparable Elizabeth George could write.

Instant International Bestseller “A nuanced story line perfectly in tune with our #metoo times.”—People, Book of the Week “One of the season’s most buzzed-about thrillers.”—Bookish “A strong choice for book clubs. Former political correspondent Vaughan makes an impressive debut with this savvy, propulsive courtroom drama.” —Kirkus Reviews (starred review) “Vaughan offers gripping insight into a political scandal’s hidden machinations and the tension between justice and privilege…Absorbing, polished.”—Booklist (starred review) “Skillfully interweaving the story of the unfolding scandal, Vaughan gradually reveals just how shockingly high the stakes are…Sinewy…engrossing, twist-filled.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review) You want to believe your husband. She wants to destroy him. An astonishingly incisive and suspenseful novel about a scandal amongst Britain’s privileged elite and the women caught up in its wake. Sophie’s husband James is a loving father, a handsome man, a charismatic and successful public figure. And yet he stands accused of a terrible crime. Sophie is convinced he is innocent and desperate to protect her precious family from the lies that threaten to rip them apart. Kate is the lawyer hired to prosecute the case: an experienced professional who knows that the law is all about winning the argument. And yet Kate seeks the truth at all times. She is certain James is guilty and is determined he will pay for his crimes. Who is right about James? Sophie or Kate? And is either of them informed by anything more than instinct and personal experience? Despite her privileged upbringing, Sophie is well aware that her beautiful life is not inviolable. She has known it since she and James were first lovers, at Oxford, and she witnessed how easily pleasure could tip into tragedy. Most people would prefer not to try to understand what passes between a man and a woman when they are alone: alone in bed, alone in an embrace, alone in an elevator… Or alone in the moonlit courtyard of an Oxford college, where a girl once stood before a boy, heart pounding with excitement, then fear. Sophie never understood why her tutorial partner Holly left Oxford so abruptly. What would she think, if she knew the truth?

He found the body on the forty-third day of his walk . . . Devastated by the senseless murder of his wife, Detective Superintendent Thomas Lynley retreated to Cornwall, where he has spent six solitary weeks hiking the bleak and rugged coastline. But no matter how far he walks, the painful memories do not diminish. Then, at the base of a cliff near a town better known for its surfing than its intrigue, Lynley discovers the body of a young man who has fallen to his death. First a witness, then a suspect when the hand of a killer is revealed, Lynley remains, above all, a policeman willing to aid the gruff head of an understaffed local constabulary in her investigation. But the secrets in this community run dark and deep—and Lynley must somehow find a way to let go of the past long enough to solve a most devious and dreadful crime.
