  • La rivière

    Peter Heller

    Deux copains de fac s'offrent la virée en canoé de leur rêve sur le fleuve Maskwa, au nord du Canada. Bientôt la balade contemplative tourne à la course contre la montre quand l'horizon s'obscurcit du plus dévorant des feux de forêt. Mais dans les bras et sous le règne de dame nature, une menace peut toujours en cacher une autre. Peter Heller met sa pratique intime de l'aventure, son sens irrésistible du suspense et sa connexion unique aux paysages au service d'une folle et sauvage équipée qui éprouve autant l'amitié sincère de ses personnages que les nerfs du lecteur.

  • Céline

    Peter Heller

    Détective privée atypique et dure à cuire, Céline Watkins est spécialisée dans la recherche de personnes disparues. Lorsque Gabriela, doutant de la version officielle sur l'évaporation de son père porté disparu dans le parc national de Yellowstone vingt ans plus tôt, vient trouver l'élégante sexagénaire, celle-ci se raconte qu'elle accepte l'affaire comme un dernier tour de piste. Mais rien n'est anodin. Car explorer le passé de la jeune femme, ce n'est pas seulement révéler un pan de l'histoire politique américaine, c'est aussi réveiller ses propres fantômes.

  • Quelque part dans le Colorado, neuf ans après la Fin de Toute Chose. L'art de survivre est devenu un sport extrême, un jeu de massacre. Soumis aux circonstances hostiles, Hig, doux rêveur tendance chasse, pêche et poésie chinoise, fait équipe avec Bangley, vieux cow-boy chatouilleux de la gâchette. À la fois captivant roman d'aventures, grand huit des émotions humaines, déclaration d'amour à la nature et pure révélation littéraire, La Constellation du Chien est une version solaire de La Route de Cormac McCarthy. (Et in extremis, réconfortante !)

  • Peintre en vogue, pêcheur ardent, philosophe artisanal, Jim Stegner est embarqué dans un engrenage fatal le jour où il prend la défense d'une petite jument maltraitée. Retour de Peter Heller après La Constellation du chien. Action, fureur et poésie.

  • After having shot a man in a Santa Fe bar, the famous artist Jim Stegner served his time and has since struggled to manage the dark impulses that sometimes overtake him. Now he lives a quiet life. . . until the day that he comes across a hunting guide beating a small horse, and a brutal act of new violence rips his quiet life right open. Pursued by men dead set on retribution, Jim is left with no choice but to return to New Mexico and the high-profile life he left behind, where he'll reckon with past deeds and the dark shadows in his own heart.

  • A novel about the end of the world which makes you happy to be alive.

  • A novel about the end of the world which makes you happy to be alive.

  • From the best-selling author of The Dog Stars and The Painter, a luminous, masterful novel of suspense--the story of Celine, an elegant, aristocratic private eye who specializes in reuniting families, trying to make amends for a loss in her own past. Working out of her jewel box of an apartment at the base of the Brooklyn Bridge, Celine has made a career of tracking down missing persons, and she has a better record at it than the FBI. But when a young woman, Gabriela, asks for her help, a world of mystery and sorrow opens up. Gabriela's father was a photographer who went missing on the border of Montana and Wyoming. He was assumed to have died from a grizzly mauling, but his body was never found. Now, as Celine and her partner head to Yellowstone National Park, investigating a trail gone cold, it becomes clear that they are being followed--that this is a case someone desperately wants to keep closed. Inspired by the life of Heller’s own remarkable mother, a chic and iconoclastic private eye, Celine is a deeply personal novel, a wildly engrossing story of family, privilege, and childhood loss. Combining the exquisite plotting and gorgeous evocation of nature that have become his hallmarks, Peter Heller gives us his finest work to date.
