No seio da máfia turca de Paris, um empolgante romance do mestre do suspense francês...
Anna Heymes é casada com um alto funcionário do Ministério do Interior. Há mais de um mês que sofre de alucinações terríveis e de crises de amnésia, ao ponto de já não reconhecer o próprio marido e de duvidar da sua honestidade.
Entretanto, o inspector Paul Nerteaux é encarregado de um in

Υπέροχο, με σκηνές δράσης που εναλλάσσονται σαν κινηματογραφική ταινία. Ο άνθρωπος έγραψε πάλι (κυριολεκτικά και μεταφορικά) :P

“O Império dos Lobos” revelou-se um excelente livro policial com um desfecho surpreendentemente bom e simultaneamente trágico. Duas histórias paralelas que avançam a um ritmo vertiginoso, dominadas por uma energia narrativa deslumbrante e que de repente se unem – provocando uma onde de choque que leva cerca de 100 páginas a “juntar” e que revelam uma originalidade sem limites.
Todas as personagens do Grangé são de antologia: destaco o Paul Nerteaux pela sua excepcional determinação, ingenuidade

I put this book on hold from the library not because I knew what it was about or that it had been recommended to me, but because I knew that they’d made a movie out of it…and the movie was French. I have a soft spot for French movies . But because the movie isn’t available at my library, I had to read the book first. And now, I have a soft spot for French books.

I haven’t read a book in years that has captured my attention so well. From the very first sentence, I was hooked. For the first… twelve

Sırf adında “Kurt” geçiyor diye başladığım bir kitaptı ve zerre zevk almadım. İlk on yirmi sayfada devamı için inanılmaz bir beklentiye giriyorsunuz ama bekletiniz boşa çıkıyor. Fransa’da bir Türk mahallesinde işlenen cinayetten girip; “ Kürtler dünya üzerinde ülkesi olmayan en büyük halk. Yaklaşık yirmi beş milyon.” diye etnik edebiyat kasma özelliği sadece bizim çomarlara özgü değilmiş demek. Vedat Türkali gibi etnik adları 24 puntoyla yazsaydınız. Nasıl hırs yapmışsa Lazlar’dan da bahsetmiş. ...more

4.5
Fransa'dan Türkiye'ye uzanan müthiş bir roman. Karakterler, olay örgüsü ve genel hikayeyi çok sevdim. Yazarın Kaiken ve Ölü ruhlar Ormanı romanlarını okumuştum, çevre tasvirleri ve uzun betimlemeler olaylardan uzaklaştırıp romanı sıkıcı hale getiriyordu ancak Kurtlar İmparatorluğu'nda böyle uzun ve sıkıcı betimlemeler yoktu. Yazar baştan sona gizemi ve aksiyonu bol bol kullanmış. Okurken hiç sıkılmadım, aksine merak ederek çevirdim sayfaları.
Kurgu gerçekten güzeldi, olaylar hız kesmeden de

Schwache Nerven darf man bei Grangé wirklich nicht haben. Auch dieser Thriller hat es wieder in sich und wartet mit einigen unschönen Passagen auf. Aber die Geschichte zieht einen auch wieder in den Bann. Das Ermittlerpaar ist wie schon in einigen anderen seiner Bücher alles andere als normal - diesmal ist es ein junger Kommissar ohne viel Erfahrung, der auf einen gräßlichen Dreifachmord im türkischen Viertel von Paris angesetzt wird. Er weiß sich nicht anders zu helfen, als eine Polizeilegende, ...more

Um complexo thriller a la Grangé, alternando entre personagens e cenários, até tramas. É isto que eleva Grangé até um patamar elevadíssimo, dentro do género. Tudo é sacrificável. Preconceitos, fórmulas, mesmo as suas.

Lendo a sinopse e as linhas gordas não ficamos a saber grande coisa sobre o livro e até parecerá sempre banal. Nada mais errado, a história é tão rica que um dos grandes artifícios de Grangé - o cenário - passa em 90% por Paris. Nunca em todo o livro a capital francesa é saturante o

Un excellent polar qui tient en haleine dès les premières pages et qu'il est difficle de lâcher! Stressant, angoissant, le livre brouille les pistes et les frontières entre le bien et le mal, les gentils et les méchants, s'effacent. Jean-Christophe Grangé nous plonge dans le monde méconnu de la communauté turque, sa mafia et les intrigues politico-policères qui s'y trouvent mêlées.

Kitabı bugün bitirdim. Bu kitabı uzun bir zaman dilimine ayırarak okumak istedim ama bu sıkıldığımdan değildi. Kesinlikle kitabı okurken sıkılmıyorsunuz. Önce ki kitabı Taş Meclisi okurken o kadar sıkılmıştım ki bu kitabı okuma sebebim hala etkisinden kurtulamadığım Kızıl Nehirler ve Leyleklerin Uçuşu. Yine de onlar kadar olmasa da yine de başarılı bir kurgusu var ancak kitapların sonunu bağlayamayan Grange , bu kitabı da hayal kırıklığıyla sonlandırıyor. Yine de genel olarak gayet başarılı . İç

Grange kitapları benim birkaç gün içerisinde bitirdiğim kitaplar oldu hep. Çok fazla sayfalı kitaplara karşı ön yargılarımı kırmama vesile olan, lise bitimi üniversite başlangıcı yıllar arasında okuduğum kitaplar, macera polisiye türünde. Bence bu tür kitaplar insana analitik düşünme yetisi kazandırıyor. Kütüphanede okumayı sevmiyorum, sadece sürükleyici kitap okuyabiliyorum diyenleri yönlendirdiğim bir yazardır kendisi. Şu an elime Grange kitabı geçse zaman kaybı derim ama o dönem benim için ol ...more

Un libro rápido e interesante, aunque algo violento para algunos gustos. Personajes que caminan el límite entre el bien y el mal en una doble trama (una mujer que parece estar teniendo alucinaciones solo para descubrir que fue sometida a una extensa cirugía estética que no recuerda y dos detectives investigando tres brutales asesinatos de inmigrantes turcas ilegales en París). Ahora, tiene el problema que aborda temas debatibles con métodos cuestionables o dudosos y pretende solucionar todo de u ...more

Il fuoco sotto le ceneri di un impero

Si tratta di un thriller eccezionale, costruito con sbalorditiva abilità su un intreccio complesso ma coerente, con personaggi estremi ma credibili e intorno ad ambientazioni al contempo variegate ed accurate, dal cuore più nascosto e buio della Ville Lumière alle montagne dei Tauri nella zona più remota dell’Anatolia.

Il commento si potrebbe concludere qui, ma val la pena di sottolineare la geniale struttura narrativa del racconto, che sovverte le regole e

Jean-Christophe Grangé’s The Empire of the Wolves is harrowingly graphic. A secret right-wing Turkish sect is busy butchering its way through the textile-worker community in Paris (all trafficked women from Turkey). The wife of a senior bureaucrat is having violent flashbacks that lead her towards paranoia and breakdown. The policeman investigating the serial killings is forced to rope in a retired colleague, a man who has been well-known for his efficiency in keeping crime down in the Turkish q ...more

Anna Heymes est tr?s perturb?e, ses souvenirs lui ? filent ? entre les doigts. Ils perdent en consistance, se d?litent dans son esprit.

Translated from the French, this thriller opens with a rather cliched hook (amnesia) but it is done very well. Memory loss is an overused conceit in fiction (and soap operas), but when done in a fresh way, it works very well to immediately create a connection between reader and character. And this book does have a fresh feeling with its extensive detail, memorable characters and a shifting perspectives. But, the book offers too many points-of-view and the book suffers from a sort of self-inflict ...more

Horrific serial murders of Turkish women, a woman who is starting to wonder if her husband is who he says he is. An exciting thriller with lots of twists and turns. Not your typical mystery well worth a read.

3,5 stars

In this book, there's a lot of mystery waiting for you - even when you think you know what's going to happen, you'll always end up surprised. I liked the way how the random pieces of information conected to each other and how more and more secrets have been discovered. The reason why I gave the book only 3,5 stars is that the ending seems to me like the author couldn't wait to finish the book HUGE SPOILER (view spoiler)

Grange scrive bene, fin troppo per un giallista, ma il suo gusto dell'orrido non è pulp, non è anesthesia, è compiacimento spazzatura.

So far the book is really interesting. The book is splitting into two stories that will eventually reunite for the plot. There is a woman who is losing her memory and suspects her husband of playing a role in her losing her memory. There is also a police officer who decides to bring a loose cannon out of retirement to help him seek out a serial killer in a neighborhood of Paris where no one talks to the police. The serial killer is only killing redheaded women. This fact wasn't released to the p ...more
