Douglas Preston e Lincoln Child non si smentiscono, una bella storia di Pendergast. Questo è il seguito dell'isola della follia non va letto singolarmente. ( )

Wow, another great novel in the Pendergast series. So many surprises in this one, and an amazing ending. I can tell Two Graves will be yet another unforgettable Preston/Child novel to close up this trilogy inside the series. ( )

I enjoyed Still Life With Crows. Cold Vengeance-not enough to read more than a fourth of the book. There were to many plots and sub plots to keep track of as well as skipping from Scotland, New York, Mississippi, Maine and other locations..Not recommended. ( )

Book description
Devastated by the discovery that his wife, Helen, was murdered, Special Agent Pendergast must have retribution. But revenge is not simple. As he stalks his wife's betrayers-a chase that takes him from the wild moors of Scotland to the bustling streets of New York City and the darkest bayous of Louisiana-he is also forced to dig further into Helen's past. And he is stunned to learn that Helen may have been a collaborator in her own murder.

Peeling back the layers of deception, Pendergast realizes that the conspiracy is deeper, goes back generations, and is more monstrous than he could have ever imagined-and everything he's believed, everything he's trusted, everything he's understood . . . may be a horrific lie.
