Three thriller novels:
A flash kidnapping, but the ransom demanded is too small. Michele, aesthetic surgeon, has no doubt: this is a joke. Of course he is sure that a child was calling, his son Andrea could not have been really kidnapped. Soon doubts arise: that Andrea was not the first kidnapping in similar circumstances. Already, other children have disappeared and only those who paid the ransom could re-embrace their families. Who has not done that has not seen them anymore. Despite the contrary opinion of his wife he calls the police, determined to set a trap for the kidnappers. Whether they are children is beyond doubt, but who is maneuvering them and why? Are they really casual abductions or they follow a pattern? When the ransom is withdrawn by a young girl they think to be one step away from the solution, they do not realize a chess match with an implacable opponent is just started.
House of the Dead
By now life seems settled and done. Reduced to a caregiver of the old and moribund, plagued by a drug-addicted daughter who can't stop. There's no future. But one day, by chance, she finds a false wall in her bedroom, a wall that hides two corpses. That's what happened to her partner, who had oppressed her for years with abuse before disappearing. That's what happened to her son, who she believed ran away from home. They have always been there, with her. Someone killed them. She cannot call the police. She'd be the prime suspect. The only suspect. She can't do anything but hide the bodies. She'd like to forget, but cannot. Because in this building there are other faux walls and other hidden corpses, and several people have disappeared suddenly. She just has to try to find the truth.

If she wants to save his children, Mrs. Morel will have to fight again; a relentless battle against an implacable enemy, who was willing to do anything to destroy them.
