Abstract: All'apparenza non è il tipo che ispira sicurezza: ha una chiara propensione a cacciarsi nei guai, un'attrazione fatale per le situazioni imbarazzanti e si comporta spesso come un adolescente allupato, provandoci con ogni ragazza che gli capita a tiro. In realtà Ryo Saeba è un geniale investigatore privato pronto a soccorrere chiunque chieda il suo aiuto e, se costretto, a usare la pistola con la precisione di un cecchino. "City Hunter" è la sua storia. Un fumetto che ha costruito la propria fortuna su un ricco cast di comprimari - fra cui l'assistente Kaori e il collega Falcon - e su un mix di azione, comicità e suspense. La serie realizzata da Tsukasa Hojo fra gli anni '80 e '90 ha ispirato anche un anime. In un volume antologico, ecco una selezione delle avventure più significative di Ryo Saeba.

The Riley Collins series
Abstract: When Riley is caught up in a violent incident, the State Department steps in, offering an all-expense paid senior year at Harrington Academy, one of the most elite boarding schools in Connecticut. The catch: she must use her tactical skills to keep her eye on heiress Hayden Frasier, the daughter of a tech billionaire intent on changing the world. Immersed in American materialism and social media for the first time, it's culture shock for Riley. Hayden resents her new roommate, and Riley learns nothing is ever private when there's a cellphone around. She discovers allies in Von Alder, the cute class flirt; Sam Hudson, whose status as Hayden's ex-boyfriend puts him on the forbidden list; and Captain Grace Taylor, Harrington's tough new head of security, and the only one who knows Riley's true purpose at Harrington. Disturbing signs begin to appear that Riley's assignment wasn't the walk in the park she'd been promised. She learns the death of Hayden's former roommate might not have been an accident after all, and she spars with classmate Quinn, whose attempts at social sabotage causes Riley to take drastic measures. As Riley's relationship with Hayden thaws into her first opportunity at true friendship, the danger around her roommate heats up. Riley must fight for her life and Hayden's - and the security of a nation - as those around her reveal themselves to be true friends, or the ultimate betrayers.

Kahlen is resigned to finishing her sentence in solitude... until she meets Akinli. Handsome, caring, and kind, Akinli is everything Kahlen ever dreamed of. And although she can't talk to him, they soon forge a connection neither of them can deny... and Kahlen doesn't want to. Falling in love with a human breaks all the Ocean's rules, and if the Ocean discovers Kahlen's feelings, she'll be forced to leave Akinli for good.

Abstract: "This is a book about me. Let me tell you now that 98% of it is total lies. Actually, I'm pretty sure this book is illegal. So if you've bought it, you've basically supported a criminal. How does that feel I think she's getting me back for my first day in this world when I mayyy have tried to kill her. She won't not be able to mention that. . . You might also find out about my first day at school, why my head is so massive, how I've always been a hit with the ladies and other things like that. You know, important stuff." Caspar Lee

Abstract: In a secret world where half-angel warriors are sworn to fight demons, parabatai is a sacred word. A parabatai is your partner in battle; your best friend. Parabatai can be everything to each other - but they can never fall in love. Emma Carstairs is a warrior, a Shadowhunter. She lives for battle. Alongside her parabatai, Julian Blackthorn, she patrols Los Angeles, where vampires party on the Sunset Strip, and faeries - the most powerful of supernatural creatures - teeter on the edge of war with Shadowhunters. When the bodies of humans and faeries are found murdered in the same way Emma's parents were when she was a child, an uneasy alliance is formed. This is Emma's chance for revenge and Julian's chance to get back his brother Mark, who is being held by the faerie Courts. All they have to do is solve the murders within two weeks . . . and before the murderer targets them. Their search takes Emma from sea caves full of sorcery to a dark lottery where death is dispensed. And each clue she unravels uncovers more secrets. What has Julian been hiding from her all these years? Why does Shadowhunter Law forbid parabatai to fall in love? Who really killed her parents - and can she bear to know the truth?
