Old Bones Audiobook

Old Bones

Author: Douglas Preston, Lincoln Child Narrator: Cynthia Farrell Release Date: August 2019

#1 bestselling authors Preston & Child bring the true story of the ill-fated Donner Party to new life in a thrilling blend of archaeology, history, murder, and suspense. Nora Kelly, a young curator at the Santa Fe Institute of Archaeology, is approached by historian Clive Benton with a once-in-a-lifetime proposal: to lead a team in search of the so-called 'Lost Camp' of the tragic Donner Party. This was a group of pioneers who earned a terrible place in American history when they became snow-bound in the California mountains in 1847, their fate unknown until the first skeletonized survivors stumbled out of the wilderness, raving about starvation, murder-and cannibalism. Benton tells Kelly he has stumbled upon an amazing find: the long-sought diary of one of the victims, which has an enigmatic description of the Lost Camp. Nora agrees to lead an expedition to locate and excavate it-to reveal its long-buried secrets. Once in the mountains, however, they learn that discovering the camp is only they first step in a mounting journey of fear. For as they uncover old bones, they expose the real truth of what happened, one that is far more shocking and bizarre than mere cannibalism. And when those ancient horrors lead to present-day violence on a grand scale, rookie FBI agent Corrie Swanson is assigned the case...only to find that her first investigation might very well be her last.

Escucha en audiolibro El muñeco de nieve, séptima entrega de la serie de novela negra noruega protagonizada por el atormentado detective Harry Hole, es un combate cara a cara con el mal absoluto. La primera nevada cae en noviembre este año en Oslo. La mañana siguiente, al despertarse, un niño no encuentra a su madre en casa. Se le hace raro encontrar su bufanda favorita colgando del cuello de un muñeco de nieve que alguien ha hecho en el jardín. El detective Harry Hole empieza a sospechar que hay un psicópata suelto, desde hace demasiado tiempo, cuando descubre que un alarmante número de madres y esposas han desaparecido en circunstancias similares, tras caer la primera nieve. Nunca antes se ha enfrentado Harry, ni ningún otro policía, a un asesino en serie en suelo noruego. Va a verse obligado a seguir las reglas de un juego macabro que lo pueden llevar al límite de la locura. A la vez que diseccionaconceptos como la paternidad, la vanidad y la muerte, El muñeco de nieve es un viaje definitivo y destructor al corazón del detective: las heridas que inflige su trabajo en Harry Hole no podrán ser más profundas. Con un sentido drástico del ritmo, una construcción de personajes infalible y un intercambio veloz de tramas, esta novela supuso la consagración internacional definitiva de Jo Nesbø. Ahora también puedes escucharla. Críticas: «Una novela implacable. El modo en cómo transformó una bonita estampa infantil en algo terrorífico ha logrado perturbar mi sueño. Todos en mi banda leen ahora a Jo Nesbø.» Patti Smith «El muñeco de nieve es un libro tan insondable como la nieve, tan luminoso y abstracto como los cuartetos finales para cuerda de Beethoven, es una experiencia literaria única y perturbadora.» James Ellroy «Noruega podría muy bien presumir de que Henrik Ibsen, Edvard Munch y el exitoso escritor de thrillers Jo Nesbø sean sus hijos predilectos.» The New York Times «Muy de vez en cuando aparece una novela negra extraordinariamente buena. Jo Nesbø lo ha logrado con El muñeco de nieve.» The Sunday Times
