This is a short Pendergast story from when he was a kid. I often find these short stories that seem to be so popular these days lacking and real depth, they are too short, you hardly get into the story before it is over. This is an exception. This is a good story, very eerie. If you like Agent Pendergast, if you like creepy little tales, then you will love this one!

This is a short story by authors Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child, meant to tide over their fans last year until the next Pendergast book came out. It's a short but thrilling tale, where Pendergast tells a ghost story of sorts--his personal ghosts. It's just the sort of story you'd imagine lurking in Pendergast's past. The view into his childhood is revealing, especially his thoughts on his brother. He seems to genuinely regret his behavior towards his brother. And, most telling, he gives the impression he's still a bit frightened by what he saw in that house. Extraction offers a bit of insight into how the character of Agent Pendergast became the man we read about.
A nice tidbit for reading in the dark! ( )

Book description
In New Orleans' French Quarter, the Tooth Fairy isn't a benevolent sprite who slips money under your pillow at night....he's a mysterious old recluse who must be appeased with teeth--lest he extract retribution. When young Diogenes Pendergast loses a tooth, however, his skeptical older brother Aloysius is determined to put the legend to the test...with dire consequences.
