Un omaggio in esclusiva per i nostri lettori, un racconto inedito di Paolo Foschi.
Genevieve Masefield and George Porter Dillman have met all kinds of people while sailing as ship detectives for the Cunard Line. But as they prepare to embark on yet another Atlantic crossing, this time aboard the famous Caronia, they encounter an entirely new circumstance: two men brandishing shotguns herd a man and a woman aboard ship in shackles, right in front of scores of baffled passengers. Curious, the two detectives come to find out that the young couple have been captured in New York by Scotland Yard and are being transported back to England to stand trial for murder. Before long, George and Genevieve have a chance to talk to the Scotland Yard officers, and come away far than convinced that the captured couple are the vicious criminals they’re thought to be. Of course, no matter how much they'd like to follow up on the hunch that the two may not be guilty, they've got a ship full of their standard responsibilities: purse-snatching passengers, stateroom burglars, professional poker cheats, and, of course, drug traffickers posing as high-class travelers. But the hunch just won't go away, and George knows he'll just have to find time to check into the situation. All in all, it's another hugely fun romp on the high seas for two detectives rapidly becoming fan favorites in Conrad Allen's iventive historical series.

Ce dictionnaire, réalisé sous la direction de Jean Tulard, a été publié avec le concours du Centre national des Lettres.
Ce magnifique ouvrage est composé d'articles de synthèse souvent très développés sur des thèmes fondamentaux peu ou mal connus parfois, de portraits de personnages marquants, de l'histoire des pays et d'articles plus courts sur la vie des départements, les simples engagements militaires, la biographie de préfets, de députés ou de généraux qui n'ont joué qu'un rôle secondaire mais ne pouvaient être écartés. La liberté de chaque auteur a été respectée. Chacun exprime comme il l'entend, sur le fond comme dans la forme. Ce dictionnaire n'est ni polémique ni hagiographique. "Quel roman que ma vie!" déclarait Napoléon. Le vœu de Jean Tulard et de tous ceux qui ont participé à cette œuvre est que ce dictionnaire consacré à Napoléon se lise comme un roman, tout en garantissant au lecteur la rigueur scientifique qu'il est en droit d'attendre d'une telle somme.
