Die Stimmung in der Londoner Bohème-Bar "Bacchus" ist getrübt. Nicht nur weil Hitler ganz Europa in einen Krieg stürzen will. Viel schwerer wiegt die grausame Ermordung eines zehnjährigen jüdischen Mädchens aus der Nachbarschaft und der Verdacht, dass der Mörder höchstwahrscheinlich einer der Stammgäste ist. Die Polizei tappt im Dunkeln. Detective Inspector Dick Turpin spult sein Routineprogramm herunter, doch das ist der exzentrischen Powerfrau und eigensinnigen Sozialreformerin Asta Thundersley nicht genug. Sie ermittelt auf eigene Faust und beschließt, dem Täter eine Falle zu stellen...

Gerald Kershs grandiose Mixtur aus Polizeiroman, Psychothriller und nihilistischem Noir zählt zu den Klassikern des Genres. Er erzählt von gescheiterten Existenzen und den Tücken des Lebens und veranschaulicht, wie viele Verlierer für einen Gewinner auf der Strecke bleiben.

En el Infierno, Dante es guiado por Virgilio, el guardián de los saberes antiguos, y encuentra en cada uno de los círculos infernales a pecadores «pasados, presentes y futuros» de todo tipo. Esta aventura iniciática, que el poeta aprovecha para pasar cuentas con sus enemigos coetáneos, en lo político y lo religioso, esconde también en su núcleo y estructura un secreto que legiones de estudiosos han tratado de desvelar.

Esta edición, que recupera una magnífica traducción en verso y se apoya en un rico aparato de notas, se abre asimismo con una nueva y esclarecedora introducción que ofrece una clave de lectura insólita: Dante como el depositario de un saber hermético, como l. a. punta de lanza de una sociedad secreta cuyas raíces llegan hasta los angeles esencia del cristianismo y cuyas ramas rozan l. a. materia de nuestros días.
