    Harlan Coben

    Le destin d'un golfeur professionnel tient à peu de chose. Une victoire dans un tournoi majeur et il entre dans la légende. Une seconde place, et il tombe dans l'oubli. Jack Coldren ne le sait que trop bien: depuis 23 ans, il ne pense qu'à cet US Open qu'il a laissé filer alors qu'il menait confortablement à l'attaque des trois derniers trous. Un mauvais coup et sa vie a basculé. Le doute, la dépression. Une carrière brisée.
    Mais cette semaine-là, tandis que la compétition se tient sur le parcours qui l'a vu sombrer, il semble enfin en passe de vaincre ses démons. Seulement, tout dérape à nouveau. Son fils est kidnappé dans des circonstances mystérieuses. Son avance se met à fondre. Et Myron Bolivar, lui, commence à flairer le scénario suspect.
    Chargé d'enquêter sur cet étrange enlèvement, l'agent sportif découvre un noeud inextricable d'intérêts croisés, de vieilles rancoeurs et de conflits obscurs en marge des fairways.
    Derrière chaque élément nouveau, la même question revient sans cesse : que s'est-il vraiment passé, 23 ans plus tôt sur le trou numéro 16oe

  • Le docteur Jekyll est un médecin londonien, précurseur des tendances de la médecine psychanalytique moderne. Ayant diagnostiqué deux éléments de sa personnalité, il les dissocie grâce à des poudres chimiques. D'où deux personnages distincts : le praticien distingué, le docteur Jekyll, estimé de la haute société, et le monstre abject et dépravé, Mr Hyde. Croyant se libérer ainsi de ses cruelles angoisses, Jekyll tombe en fait sous la domination absolue de Hyde qui finira par le détruire. Dès sa parution en 1896, le roman connut un immense succès qui ne s'est pas démenti de nos jours, et a fait l'objet de nombreuses adaptations cinématographiques.
