Xavier Dupont de Ligonnès - La grande enquête by , Summary

Au début du mois d’avril 2011, un homme de 50 ans disparaissait sans laisser de traces, avant qu’on ne retrouve les corps de sa femme, de leurs quatre enfants et de leurs deux chiens enterrés sous la terrasse de leur maison nantaise. Presque dix ans plus tard, les innombrables mystères qui entourent “l’affaire Xavier Dupont de Ligonnès” font de celle-ci le fait divers français le plus indéchiffrable et discuté de ce début de millénaire. Ce récit, paru à l’été 2020 en deux volets dans le magazine Society après quatre ans d’enquête, est le plus détaillé jamais publié sur l’affaire. Pierre Boisson, Maxime Chamoux, Sylvain Gouverneur et Thibault Raisse sont journalistes pour le magazine Society.

We Were Not Armed by Christine de Vedrines Summary

This is the story of how a family can be destroyed by a chain of events that begin when one member puts her trust in a conman. At the beginning of the 21st century, the de Vedrines were an ancient aristocratic Bordeaux family, educated and socially established. From the outside they had everything they could have wished for - wealth, love, friends, education and family. But the very closeness and trust they had with each other ended up splitting them apart. Exploiting a mix of family pride, historic roots, and personal identity, an outsider - a criminal called Thierry Tilly - stripped the family over ten years of their houses, their money and their personal dignity. It took the courage of Christine de Vedrines to break away from Tilly's iron grip. Her story of how she did that is simply told but moving and sometimes almost unbearable.

The Mission Song by John le Carré Summary

In his twentieth novel, John le Carré returns to Africa with a new tale of mystery and corruption that bears the hallmarks of classic le Carré storytelling. By turns thriller, romance, and exposé of post-colonial politics, The Mission Song chronicles interpreter Bruno Salvador’s journey into the darkness of Western hypocrisy and deceit. Born to a Congolese mother and an Irish–French father and educated in Britain, “Salvo” is the faithful servant eager to play his minor part in brokering a deal that would ostensibly bring peace and prosperity to the resource-rich but ravaged Congo. But Salvo finds himself both hunter and prey when he stumbles into a carefully plotted swindle that will only further devastate his birthplace.

Pablo Escobar: My Father by Juan Pablo Escobar Summary

THE POPULAR SERIES NARCOS CAPTURES ONLY HALF THE TRUTH. HERE, AT LAST, IS THE FULL STORY. THE INTERNATIONAL BEST SELLER! Until now, we believed that everything had been said about the rise and fall of Pablo Escobar, the most infamous drug kingpin of all time, but these versions have always been told from the outside, never from the intimacy of his own home. More than two decades after the full-fledged manhunt finally caught up with the king of cocaine, Juan Pablo Escobar travels to the past to reveal an unabridged version of his father—a man capable of committing the most extreme acts of cruelty while simultaneously professing infinite love for his family. This is not the story of a child seeking redemption for his father, but a shocking look at the consequences of violence and the overwhelming need for peace and forgiveness.

Metropolis by Philip Kerr Summary

"[Metropolis is] a perfect goodbye--and first hello--to its hero...Bernie Gunther has, at last, come home."--Washington Post New York Times-bestselling author Philip Kerr treats readers to his beloved hero's origins, exploring Bernie Gunther's first weeks on Berlin's Murder Squad. Summer, 1928. Berlin, a city where nothing is verboten. In the night streets, political gangs wander, looking for fights. Daylight reveals a beleaguered populace barely recovering from the postwar inflation, often jobless, reeling from the reparations imposed by the victors. At central police HQ, the Murder Commission has its hands full. A killer is on the loose and though he scatters many clues, each is a dead end. It's almost as if he is taunting the cops. Meanwhile, the press is having a field day. This is what Bernie Gunther finds on his first day with the Murder Commisson. He's been taken on beacuse the people at the top have noticed him--they think he has the makings of a first-rate detective. But not just yet. Right now, he has to listen and learn. Metropolis, completed just before Philip Kerr's untimely death, is the capstone of a fourteen-book journey through the life of Kerr's signature character, Bernhard Genther, a sardonic and wisecracking homicide detective caught up in an increasingly Nazified Berlin police department. In many ways, it is Bernie's origin story and, as Kerr's last novel, it is also, alas, his end. Metropolis is also a tour of a city in chaos: of its seedy sideshows and sex clubs, of the underground gangs that run its rackets, and its bewildered citizens--the lost, the homeless, the abandoned. It is Berlin as it edges toward the new world order that Hitler will soo usher in. And Bernie? He's a quick study and he's learning a lot. Including, to his chagrin, that when push comes to shove, he isn't much better than the gangsters in doing whatever her must to get what he wants.

Black Klansman by Ron Stallworth Summary

The #1 New York Times Bestseller! The extraordinary true story and basis for the Academy Award winning film BlacKkKlansman, written and directed by Spike Lee, produced by Jordan Peele, and starring John David Washington and Adam Driver. When detective Ron Stallworth, the first black detective in the history of the Colorado Springs Police Department, comes across a classified ad in the local paper asking for all those interested in joining the Ku Klux Klan to contact a P.O. box, Detective Stallworth does his job and responds with interest, using his real name while posing as a white man. He figures he’ll receive a few brochures in the mail, maybe even a magazine, and learn more about a growing terrorist threat in his community. A few weeks later the office phone rings, and the caller asks Ron a question he thought he’d never have to answer, “Would you like to join our cause?” This is 1978, and the KKK is on the rise in the United States. Its Grand Wizard, David Duke, has made a name for himself, appearing on talk shows, and major magazine interviews preaching a “kinder” Klan that wants nothing more than to preserve a heritage, and to restore a nation to its former glory. Ron answers the caller’s question that night with a yes, launching what is surely one of the most audacious, and incredible undercover investigations in history. Ron recruits his partner Chuck to play the "white" Ron Stallworth, while Stallworth himself conducts all subsequent phone conversations. During the months-long investigation, Stallworth sabotages cross burnings, exposes white supremacists in the military, and even befriends David Duke himself. Black Klansman is an amazing true story that reads like a crime thriller, and a searing portrait of a divided America and the extraordinary heroes who dare to fight back.

ZeroZeroZero by Roberto Saviano Summary

“Zero zero zero” flour is the finest, whitest available. “Zero zero zero” is also the nickname among narcotraffickers for the purest, highest quality cocaine on the market. And it is the title of Roberto Saviano’s unforgettable exploration of how the cocaine trade knits the world into its dark economy and imposes its own vicious rules and moral codes on its armies and, through them, on us all. Saviano’s Gomorrah, his explosive account of the Neapolitan mob, the Camorra, was a worldwide publishing sensation. It struck such a nerve with the Camorra that Saviano has lived with twenty-four hour police protection in the shadow of death threats for more than seven years. During this time he has become intimate with law enforcement agencies around the world. Saviano has broadened his perspective to take in the entire global “corporate” entity that is the drug trade in cooperation with law enforcement officials, who have fed him information and sources and used him to guide their own thinking and tactics. Saviano has used this extraordinary access to feed his own groundbreaking reportage. The result is a truly amazing and harrowing synthesis of intimate literary narrative and geopolitical analysis of one of the most powerful dark forces in the global economy. In Zero Zero Zero, Saviano tracks the shift in the cocaine trade’s axis of power, from Colombia to Mexico, and relates how the Latin American cartels and gangs have forged alliances, first with the Italian crime syndicates, then with the Russians, Africans, and others. On the one hand, he charts an astonishing increase in sophistication and diversification as these criminal entities diversify into many other products and markets. On the other, he reveals the threat of violence to protect and extend power and how the nature of the violence has grown steadily more appalling. Saviano is a journalist of rare courage and a thinker of impressive intellectual depth and moral imagination, able to see the connections between far-flung phenomena and bind them into a single epic story. Most drug-war narratives feel safely removed from our own lives; Saviano offers no such comfort. As heart racing as it is heady, Zero Zero Zero is a fusion of a variety of disparate genres into a brilliant new form that can only be called Savianoesque.

Condemned by Graham Seal Summary

A powerful account of how coerced migration built the British Empire In the early seventeenth century, Britain took ruthless steps to deal with its unwanted citizens, forcibly removing men, women, and children from their homelands and sending them to far-flung corners of the empire to be sold off to colonial masters. This oppressive regime grew into a brutal system of human bondage which would continue into the twentieth century. Drawing on firsthand accounts, letters, and official documents, Graham Seal uncovers the traumatic struggles of those shipped around the empire. He shows how the earliest large-scale kidnapping and transportation of children to the American colonies were quickly bolstered with shipments of the poor, criminal, and rebellious to different continents, including Australia. From Asia to Africa, this global trade in forced labor allowed Britain to build its colonies while turning a considerable profit. Incisive and moving, this account brings to light the true extent of a cruel strand in the history of the British Empire.

Ces entreprises qui vous racontent des histoires by Olivier SERE Summary

Les entreprises, nous en attendons une véritable contribution positive à la société. Elles doivent être capables de se projeter vers notre futur commun, de proposer une vision pour l’ensemble du corps social sur des défis variés comme l’environnement, l’emploi, l’inclusion, etc. Et pour cela, elles doivent se raconter, bâtir un récit stimulant, novateur, engagé et sincère ! Une entreprise qui délivre la bonne histoire, crédible, argumentée, habitée par des engagements concrets, nous la croyons. Mais pour celle qui croit nous tromper, nous sommes sans pitié. C’est ainsi que le récit, la capacité à se raconter est devenue centrale dans le succès d’une marque. Le storytelling, simple mise en scène de faits, est désormais dépassé. Il laisse la place à des histoires plus riches, plus variées, plus étonnantes. Raconter des histoires... cette expression porte en elle un double sens. Gardons la dimension positive contenue dans chaque narration : celle de la transmission, celle qui repose sur une authenticité, celle qui interpelle, celle qui fait bouger les lignes. En 10 chapitres, ce livre propose d’explorer toutes les facettes de la narration des entreprises. Pourquoi raconter cette histoire ? Comment mener son récit ? Avec quelles intentions ? Quels sont les pièges à éviter pour un impact durable garanti ? A l’aide de très nombreux cas concrets et inspirants, l’auteur aborde ces questions en brassant les expertises et croisant les regards (communication, littérature, sociologie, séries...). C’est ainsi qu’il nous livre des pistes de réflexion et des conseils pratiques pour construire un récit de marque, inspirant et efficace. Cet essai est un point de départ pour échanger les expériences, les points de vue, et nourrir la réflexion autour de la communication.

Pour tout l'or du monde by François Rousseaux Summary

Orvault, dans la banlieue de Nantes, la nuit du 16 février 2017. La famille Troadec disparaît, et la France observe cette histoire comme une équation impossible : quatre disparus, une maison vide, des traces de sang nettoyées, ni explication ni arme du crime. Une nouvelle affaire de Ligonnès ? Un suspect finit par avouer, les corps sont retrouvés dans le Finistère. Le mobile ? L’or. Un prétendu butin datant de 1940. François Rousseaux n’a jamais oublié Pascal, Brigitte, Sébastien, Charlotte, les victimes. Il les raconte, avec une pudeur infinie. Dans cette enquête devenue une quête, il dissèque les soupçons et les peurs. Il s’est glissé dans la tête du suspect, il a arpenté les terres brumeuses de l’Ouest, rencontré les protagonistes à l’approche du procès. Il a exhumé, aussi, le mystère de l’or. Quatre années pendant lesquelles ce journaliste s’est confronté aux frontières de l’intime. En détricotant les secrets et les jalousies d’une famille a priori sans histoire, François Rousseaux livre ici le roman vrai d’un drame hors norme. François Rousseaux est journaliste à Télérama. Il a travaillé pour plusieurs chaînes de télévision, au Parisien-Aujourd’hui en France, et collaboré au supplément L’Époque du journal Le Monde.
