Quand veillent les ombres
Série « Krewe of Hunters » « Viens vite, j’ai besoin de toi ! » Lorsque Abigail se rend à Savannah où son grand-père la réclame, un terrible spectacle l’attend : le vieil homme gît à terre, près de son restaurant, emporté par une crise cardiaque. Par-delà la tristesse, Abigail est saisie par le doute : a-t-il cherché à l’avertir d’un danger ? Les policiers ont beau se montrer sceptiques, elle est de plus en plus persuadée qu’il s’agit d’un meurtre. Peut-être parce que d’autres morts ont été retrouvés à Savannah en l’espace de quelques jours... Ou peut-être parce que Blue, le fantôme de la maison, lui est apparu à son arrivée, comme à chaque fois qu’une menace pèse sur elle... Déterminée à agir, Abigail fait appel à une unité spécialisée du FBI qui lui envoie l’agent Malachi. Un homme qui, en plus d’être aussi têtu qu’elle, possède le même don pour voir les morts. Et, comme leur nombre s’accroît de jour en jour à Savannah, quatre yeux valent mieux que deux...

Whether regarded as a science, an art, or a skill–and it can properly be regarded as all three–logic is the basis of our ability to think, analyze, argue, and communicate. Indeed, logic goes to the very core of what we mean by human intelligence. In this concise, crisply readable book, distinguished professor D. Q. McInerny offers an indispensable guide to using logic to advantage in everyday life. Written explicitly for the layperson, McInerny’s Being Logical promises to take its place beside Strunk and White’s The Elements of Style as a classic of lucid, invaluable advice. As McInerny notes, logic is a deep, wide, and wonderfully varied field, with a bearing on every aspect of our intellectual life. A mastery of logic begins with an understanding of right reasoning–and encompasses a grasp of the close kinship between logical thought and logical expression, a knowledge of the basic terms of argument, and a familiarity with the pitfalls of illogical thinking. Accordingly, McInerny structures his book in a series of brief, penetrating chapters that build on one another to form a unified and coherent introduction to clear and effective reasoning. At the heart of the book is a brilliant consideration of argument–how an argument is founded and elaborated, how it differs from other forms of intellectual discourse, and how it critically embodies the elements of logic. McInerny teases out the subtleties and complexities of premises and conclusions, differentiates statements of fact from statements of value, and discusses the principles and uses of every major type of argument, from the syllogistic to the conditional. In addition, he provides an incisive look at illogical thinking and explains how to recognize and avoid the most common errors of logic. Elegant, pithy, and precise, Being Logical breaks logic down to its essentials through clear analysis, accessible examples, and focused insights. Whether you are a student or a teacher, a professional sharpening your career skills or an amateur devoted to the fine points of thought and expression, you are sure to find this brief guide to effecting reasoning both fascinating and illuminating.
