The Alley of Angels takes readers on a dark journey to El Salvador during the waning days of that country's bloody civil war. Chicago writer Henry Reed and his friend and colleague photographer Jean-Michel Beaulieu are assigned to discover the fate of Robert Zorn, a high-profile pastor and celebrity rabble-rouser, whose unwelcome involvement in the war may have led to his disappearance, and possibly, his death. Reed and Beaulieu's investigation finds them crossing paths with a dangerous assortment of war-weary players, including peace activists, CIA agents, death squad assassins, FMLN rebels and teenage prostitutes. In this lethal environment nothing is what it seems and no one can be trusted.

The tumultuous alley of this rich and intricate novel (first published in Arabic in 1959) is inhabited by a delightful Egyptian family, but is also the setting for a second, hidden, and more daring narrative: the spiritual history of humankind. The men and women of a modern Cairo neighborood unwittingly reenact the lives of their holy ancestors: from the feudal lord who disowns one son for diabolical pride and puts another to the test, to the savior of a succeeding generation who frees his people from bondage. This powerful novel confirms again the richness and variety of Mahfouz's storytelling and his status as "the single most important writer in modern Arabic literature" (Newsweek).

At the age of almost 47 years old I find myself travelling South on the M6 Motorway heading towards the village that I grew up in, almost 37 years have passed since I was wrenched overnight from everything I knew … On May 16th this year my Parents would have celebrated their 50th Wedding Anniversary that is, if things had been different … The journey is a strange one as I find my mind racing through my memory recalling so many different events both good and bad, I’m not scared, it’s taken me all these years to conquer my fears but I have finally managed it. Firstly I stop at Corley Services on the motorway, the very same motorway that over three decades ago I was trying to rescue my cat Kitty from. I buy coffee and stand in the midday sun chatting with three of my closest friends as we eat our freshly prepared picnic, they are 100% behind me with the book and are all excited about reading the final draft. On we go and before long I am turning the car right into Shakespeare Avenue where I pull the car over to the side of the road so that I can take a photograph of the street name, I then coast the car slowly down the road with my eyes darting in every direction trying to absorb everything until they come to rest upon the house where my story began when I was only 2 years old. Further on down the road past Bonnie’s old house, my Great Auntie Penny’s and Great Uncle Edwin’s old place and then Cleggy’s old house until I reach the place where my little friend Maddie breathed her last breath …

Dripping in detail, Judith Dring’s Pearl: An Australian Story brings to life the complex nature of a small Australian town. The realness of the world Judith Dring creates is truly remarkable and should not be missed. Set during wartime in the 1940s, the country and small towns of Australia still reel with the social issues of sex and race. Sally, innocent but with keen eyes and a sharp mind, is slowly exposed to these ever-present facts of small town life. In a world speckled with abusive husbands and wealthy classmates, Sally must work through the inequity of being a poor female to find a better life. Through much of her youth, her best friend, Pearl, opens her eyes to the world around her. However, as Sally will learn later, Pearl is an outcast herself. When Pearl must leave her, will Sally be able to navigate the path to adulthood and success on her own?

In his fourth book, The Alley, the author João Calazans Filho tells humorous story, flavored with local habits. It’s about a serial killer from the South of Bahia, Brazil, and of the bohemian, player and womanizer Police chief officer, who makes his mission to capture him. At the beginning of the Military Dictatorship and in the midst of the violent reality of cacao cultivation and of the Brazilian coronelism, where killing is just another tool of work, and fear is the best way to lead, the Police Chief Officer João tries to put a stop, no matter how hard it takes, to the action of a serial killer, because the officer wants to maintain the impression of peace in the city, so that he can do what he likes: get into debt by organizing carnival blocks, drinking, playing and surrounding women and friends in his casino in the legendary Beco do Pinga. Beco do Pinga, by the way, figures almost like a character in this thriller. While the landowners live on their farms in the city, away from their workers and having European customs (and spending). At Beco do Pinga, inside Camacan, these same workers spend their little and hard-earned money on the pleasures of addiction, and try not to mess with the wrong woman, at the risk of waking up 'full of lead'. The Alley is the soul, albeit a little poorly washed, of this small town. With remarkable and charming characters and an engaging storyline, The Alley carries us through an adventure in the "Brazilian Western" where the law that preponderates is the one of the ‘strongest’ whereas the moral is relative, until this quiet Sodom is interrupted by murders different from usual ones, without reason nor apparent objective.

A woman is faced with the past she's tried to put behind her only to find that what transpired in her childhood has never been further away than her own shadow. The year is 1941. Rooted in the lonely outreaches of the Allegheny Mountains lies the town of Hyde Bend. Its heart: a steel mill; its bones: the tight community of Polish immigrants who inhabit it; and its blood: their fierce Catholic faith. But buried in the town's soul is a dangerous secret surrounding the death of a revered priest. Upon returning to Hyde Bend, a young woman accidentally uncovers the truth behind this crime, which leads to a second murder. The town quickly erupts in fear and finger pointing. The girl is forced to unravel the now-intertwined mysteries and discovers her own family at the center. Now she must confront all she holds sacred if she is to save her family and herself in this story of lost innocence, transgression, faith, and forgiveness.
