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. ( )

Love Agent Pendergast. Superb research behind the entertaining plot. Epilogue capped it off nicely. Would recommend to anyone in search of a classic investigator amid real life circumstances with a sick twist. ( )

Another good novel with Agent Pendergast...one of their early ones which certainly get alot better as you move through the series. ( )

It was absolutely awesome to read another book featuring Agent Pendergast. He is just such a phenomenal main character and the authors really maintain his personality throughout the story (and series). I recall that the previous book in the series, Cabinet of Curiosities, was not one of my favorites. However, this novel really made me remember why I loved this series so much. The story here was gripping and violent and just plain amazing. Every character that was a part of this novel was fantastically drawn and the tensions between everyone was ridiculously good! I was secretly hoping that there would be some kind of supernatural angle to it all, but that was not to be. I still enjoyed the conclusions that the authors came to for this book, as it was successful in tying all loose ends. If you are looking for a good mystery/thriller series with a unique protagonist, then this one is a must!

That FBI Special Agent Pendergast, one of the most charismatic thriller heroes in memory, dominates this latest novel from Preston/Child is the good news; that he's working the least interesting case of his literary career (other outings include The Cabinet of Curiosities and Reliquary) is the bad...This may be minor Preston/Child, but it is major Pendergast; those for whom he's the cup of tea will drink deep.
