About the Author

The thrillers of Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child "stand head and shoulders above their rivals" (Publishers Weekly). Preston and Child's Relic and The Cabinet of Curiosities were chosen by readers in a National Public Radio poll as being among the one hundred greatest thrillers ever written, and Relic was made into a number-one box office hit movie. They are coauthors of the famed Pendergast series and their recent novels include Fever Dream, Cold Vengeance, Two Graves, and Gideon's Corpse. In addition to his novels, Preston writes about archaeology for the New Yorker and Smithsonian magazines. Lincoln Child is a former book editor who has published five novels of his own, including the huge bestseller Deep Storm.

Not my favorite Pendergast novel, moved a bit slower than usual, but still a good murder mystery. Preston/Child are still leaps and bounds ahead of other authors.

This book, just as all of the previous Pendergast novels, was Great! I read them in a day & I’m always extremely disappointed when I reach the end.

A series this long is bound to have lows, this is one of them. The mystery is generic and bland. The new partner is an empty suit, liking over brewed coffee is not intresting or funny. The FBI antagonist is introduced only to immediately back down then get promoted out of the picture. Feels like a filler book with no energy or direction. Hopefully the next book will be a return to form.

I’m a serious Pendergast fan, so I really looked forward to this novel. It didn’t have any of the magic of the other novels. In fact, I really still couldn’t tell anyone the whole story. There were too many people to try to keep track of and not enough reminders of the characters by the authors. I still love the detective, but this story felt too disjointed.

This 18th book in the series does not disappoint . I so enjoy S.A. Perdergast and his unconventional methods to solve crimes. His partner was enjoyable. All in all a good read!

I enjoyed the story, but would have liked it more if it were told more from Pendergast's perspective.

I just love Pendergast!! This book was quite GOOD! I truly enjoyed the plot and new characters. The Gents have done it again. I am already waiting for the next one. Thank you.

Waited a long time for this to come out and it just didn’t do it for me. I did not stay engaged like previous books and I could put this one down. Hope the next one is more exciting. I am still a fan.

A good read but not one of their best, slow to develop and not as intense. With the Pendergast series you look forward to page turners that keep you up all night.

Classic Pendergast, liked the addition of the partner.

Disappointed with the book. Maybe the bar was set to high with the other 17 books in the series but one seemed a step back.
