La Dama azul (The Lady in Blue)

by Javier Sierra

Javier Sierra, autor del bestseller internacional LA CENA SECRETA, nos ofrece ahora una novela de misterio e intriga sobre una de las leyendas más antiguas y extrañas de América -la dama azul. En Los Ángeles, Jennifer Narody, antigua espía del Departamento de Defensa, sueña repetidamente con una fantasmagórica mujer vestida de azul. Jennifer no lo sabe, pero ese mismo espíritu se apareció más de tres siglos atrás a los jefes de una tribu indígena de Nuevo México. Al parecer, la verdadera responsable de aquellos sucesos fue una monja española que podía "bilocarse" -esto es, que tenía la habilidad de estar en dos lugares a la vez. Mientras, en España, una nevada deja aislado al periodista Carlos Albert en el remoto pueblo de Ágreda. Allí conocerá el convento que fundó en el siglo XVII aquella mujer de hábitos azules. Intrigado por sus poderes, decide investigar. Estos hilos, unidos por el presunto suicidio de un sacerdote en Roma, llevarán a Carlos hasta Los Ángeles, donde las pesadillas de Jennifer Narody guardan la clave de un misterio que la Iglesia Católica, el Departamento de Defensa de los Estados Unidos y otras misteriosas fuerzas de las que es mejor no hablar, están empeñados en ocultar. El secreto de las bilocaciones de la dama azul está en juego.

The Lady in Blue

by Javier Sierra

In Los Angeles, Jennifer Narody has been having a series of disturbing dreams involving eerie images of a lady dressed in blue. What she doesn't know is that this same spirit appeared to leaders of the Jumano Native American tribe in New Mexico 362 years earlier, and was linked to a Spanish nun capable of powers of "bilocation," or the ability to be in two places simultaneously. Meanwhile, young journalist Carlos Albert is driven by a blinding snowstorm to the little Spanish town of Ágreda, where he stumbles upon a nearly forgotten seventeenth-century convent founded by this same legendary woman. Intrigued by her rumored powers, he delves into finding out more. These threads, linked by an apparent suicide, eventually lead Carlos to Cardinal Baldi, to an American spy, and ultimately to Los Angeles, where Jennifer Narody unwittingly holds the key to the mystery that the Catholic Church, the U.S. Defense Department, and the journalist are each determined to decipher -- the Lady in Blue.

The Lost Angel

by Javier Sierra

New York Times bestselling author Javier Sierra returns with a heartpounding, apocalyptic thriller about mankind's most ancient desire--and the modern evil some will unleash to obtain it. Every religion has a story for how our species came to mix with yours and was doomed to this planet. We are the sons of exiles. Cursed. Even man condemned us, blaming us for all the evils of the world. On the one hand you worshiped us, these beings who brought knowledge from the heavens. But you also feared us for what we might want in return. . . ." In approximately seventy-two hours, a little-known Middle Eastern terrorist group plans to bring about the end of the world. Convinced that they are the descendants of angels, they believe they are on the verge of at last being returned to heaven. Central to their plan is the kidnapping of Martin Faber, an undercover American scientist whose research has led him to an extraordinary secret. Martin's only hope for survival is his young wife, Julia Alvarez--a woman born with a rare psychic gift. But she must find the courage to save her husband, all while running from religious extremists and clandestine government agencies. Sierra takes readers on an adventure across the world, from the summit of Mount Ararat to the high desert of New Mexico, from the monuments of Washington, DC, to the medieval city of Santiago de Compostela in Spain. Sierra spent years investigating scientific and historical mysteries related to mankind's efforts to engage directly with the Almighty. The Lost Angel bears all the hallmarks of Sierra's erudite yet fast-paced brand of storytelling, combining historical fact and fiction with dazzling narrative feats.

The Secret Supper

by Javier Sierra

The most-talked-about international bestseller of the year! Tightly paced and atmospheric, The Secret Supper is a dazzling historical thriller with a unique vision of both Leonardo da Vinci's genius and his masterpiece -- which you will never look at in the same way again. Milan, 1497: Leonardo is completing The Last Supper. Pope Alexander VI is determined to execute him after realizing that the painting contains clues to a baffling -- and blasphemous -- message that he is driven to decode. The Holy Grail and the Eucharistic Bread are missing, there is no meat on the table, and the apostles, shockingly, are portraits of well-known heretics -- and none of them are depicted with halos. And why has the artist painted himself into the scene with his back turned toward Jesus? The clues to Leonardo's greatest puzzle are right before your eyes....
