Hidden deep beneath Manhattan lies a warren of tunnels, sewers, and galleries, mostly forgotten by those who walk the streets above. There lies the ultimate secret of the Museum Beast.

This was a decent follow up to Relic. I enjoyed the writing style and the characters, but at times, the story felt interminable. I think a hundred pages could have been culled without losing anything. Also, there was a moment that was supposed to be a shocking reveal, but I’m almost positive the fact was revealed at the end of Relic. I know it’s been awhile since I read Relic, so perhaps I only figured it out myself and remembered, but I don’t think so. Anyway, this was good, but I’d hoped for a little more edge-of-my-seat tension. Hopefully the next one will be a bit better. ( )

Another great read in the Pendergast series. While some of these books aren't always a 5-star read, they're still incredibly enjoyable and I always find myself looking to grab the next one of the series at Barnes & Noble when it gets released each year. Hats off to Pendergast and all of his investigations. ( )

I love this series. It keeps on getting better and better. ( )

Not nearly as good as Relic but not bad enough to turn me off of Preston & Child. ( )

Good until the very end. ( )
