雪夜,一个麻烦缠身的女模从伦敦上流社区的一处阳台坠落。她被认为是自杀。但她的哥哥怀疑另有隐情,于是请私人侦探科莫兰 斯特莱克调查。

斯特莱克是个身心曾遭重创的退伍军人,生活一团混乱。这个案子化解了他的财务危机,但他也付出了巨大代价:他深入女模复杂的世界,黑暗的真相一一浮 出水面,而他离致命危险也越来越近……

这是部引人入胜而优雅的推理小说,弥漫着浓郁的英伦气息:梅菲尔区高尚静谧的街景,东区的后街酒吧,喧嚷的苏荷区。《布谷鸟的呼唤》是部杰作,侦探科莫兰 斯特莱克的首秀,由J.K.罗琳化名罗伯特·加尔布雷思书写。

名家推荐:

刚一翻开《布谷鸟的呼唤》,我便想到自己为何热爱阅读推理小说。

——薇儿•麦克德米德,国际畅销推理小说作家

就像书中受伤的主人公,加尔布雷思这部推理小说首作本身也够坚冷强硬。《布谷鸟的呼唤》深入光鲜的上流社会,也深入人类心灵黑暗的深处。一次饶有趣味的阅读,作者前途无量。

——迈克•库伯,夏姆斯奖得主,《爪背》作者

斯特莱克是个迷人的人物,我迫不及待想要阅读他的下一次探案。斯特莱克能够立即打动读者的心,很难相信这本小说只是他的初次登场。我希望更多斯特莱克的探案故事尽快出版。一部优美的首作,主人公是我近年来遇到的最特别最迷人的侦探。

——马克•比林厄姆,畅销推理小说作家

每次刚一放下这本书,我就希望能再次阅读它。我爱这本书。加尔布雷思(J.K.罗琳化名)极有写推理小说的才华。

——彼得•詹姆斯,英国顶级畅销推理小说作家

Harry has been burdened with a dark, dangerous and seemingly impossible task: that of locating and destroying Voldemort’s remaining Horcruxes. Never has Harry felt so alone, or faced a future so full of shadows. But Harry must somehow find within himself the strength to complete the task he has been given. He must leave the warmth, safety, and companionship of The Burrow and follow without fear or hesitation the inexorable path laid out for him.

In this final, seventh installment of the Harry Potter series, J.K. Rowling unveils in spectacular fashion the answers to the many questions that have been so eagerly awaited. The spellbinding, richly woven narrative, which plunges, twists and turns at a breathtaking pace, confirms the author as a mistress of storytelling, whose books will be read, reread and read again.

Harry is waiting in Privet Drive. The Order of the Phoenix is coming to escort him safely away without Voldemort and his supporters knowing – if they can. But what will Harry do then? How can he fulfil the momentous and seemingly impossible task that Professor Dumbledore has left him with?

阅读《哈6》英国原版的理由

据悉,这次全球同步首发《哈利.波特和混血王子》是继2003年6月,中国国际图书贸易总公司全球同步发行《哈利.波特和凤凰社》之后,第二次参与全球同步发行《哈利.波特》系列图书。该公司负责这一事务的姜涛告诉记者,《哈利.波特》系列图书英文版有四个版本,分别是:英国儿童版、英国成人版以及美国儿童版和成人版,而中国国际图书贸易总公司引进的版本是英国儿童版。

姜涛表示,尽管美国版和英国版的内容没有区别,只是在书封和内页排版上有所不同,他们认为英国版才是《哈利.波特》的纯正版本,因此在引进中国的时候选择了英国儿童版。“《哈利.波特》的作者罗琳是英国人,书中的故事都是以英国为背景的。无论是书中所描述的主人公的服饰、还是故事所发生的地点以及其他细节,都是以英国为背景的,我们认为英国版本是更加纯正的版本。”姜涛还介绍,成人版和儿童版在内容上也没有区别。(新闻来源:新京报)

《哈6》英国版和美国版的区别

为防止盗版等问题以确保自己的权益,作者罗琳仅授权英国、美国、加拿大、澳大利亚和南非的五家出版商出版其英文版,但由于运输路径、成本等原因,国内主要引进的是英国版和美国版。在英国,版本还细分为儿童版和成人版,两者的主要区别仅是封面不同;在美国则只有一个版本。那么,美国版与英国版有什么区别呢?美国版编辑解释说,主要是因为美国英语与英国英语的细微差别所致,比如,英国用“jumper”表示套头衫,而美国认为这是跳高运动员的意思,所以,在美国版中就改用了“sweater”一词,美国版书中主要是做了类似这样的改动。

Book Description

'In a brief statement on Friday night, Minister for Magic Cornelius Fudge confirmed that He Who Must Not Be Named has returned to this country and is once more active. "It is with great regret that I must confirm that the wizard styling himself Lord - well, you know who I mean - is alive and among us again," said Fudge.' These dramatic words appeared in the final pages of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. In the midst of this battle of good and evil, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince takes up the story of Harry Potter's sixth year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, with Voldemort's power and followers increasing day by day

Amazon.co.uk

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, the sixth book in J.K. Rowling’s bestselling series, picks up shortly after we left Harry at the end of The Order of the Phoenix. Lord Voldemort is acting out in the open, continuing his reign of terror which was temporarily stopped almost 15 years beforehand. Harry is again at the Dursleys, where the events of the previous month continue to weigh on his mind, although not as much as the impending visit from his Headmaster, Albus Dumbledore. Given their last meeting, Harry is understandably confused as to why the old wizard would want to visit him at home.

Rowling opens with a chapter she had wanted to use for the first book, of The Philosopher’s Stone--Lord Voldemort has been creating chaos in the Wizard and Muggle communities alike, the war is in full swing and the Wizarding community now lives in fear. The press have been questioning the events at the Ministry which led to the admission of Voldemort’s return, and of course Harry’s name is mentioned a number of times. Harry’s got his problems, but his anxiety is nothing compared to Hermione’s when the OWL results are delivered. There’s a new Defence Against The Dark Arts teacher, an assortment of new characters and creatures, and startling revelations about past characters and events.

Gone is the rage-filled Harry of The Order of the Phoenix--he’s not being kept in the dark any more, his unjustified Quidditch ban has been lifted and he has matured considerably in his short time out of school. Half-Blood Prince follows Harry into the world of late-teens, and his realisation that nobody is infallible has made his growth that much easier. Accepting his destiny, Harry continues to behave as teenagers do, enjoying his time with his friends, developing his relationships outside of his usual circle, and learning more about how he must, eventually, do what he is destined to do.

J.K. Rowling delivers another fantastic tale which will have the readers gasping for more, capturing the characters perfectly and continuing a tale which readers will enjoy over and over again.

Harry Potter has never played a sport while flying on a broomstick. He's never worn a Cloak of Invisibility, befriended a giant, or helped hatch a dragon. All Harry knows is a miserable life with the Dursleys, his horrible aunt and uncle, and their abominable son, Dudley. Harry's room is a tiny cupboard under the stairs, and he hasn't had a birthday party in ten years.

But all that is about to change when a mysterious letter arrives by owl messenger: a letter with an invitation to a wonderful place he never dreamed existed. There he finds not only friends, aerial sports, and magic around every corner, but a great destiny that's been waiting for him... if Harry can survive the encounter.
