anyone who loves or has loved conan doyles sherlock holmes will love this series with pendergast. Hes definitley different but as a dective probably without equal in solving crimes of a grisly nature and the author sucks you in and leaves on the edge of your seat, been a long time since i have read such a great dectective, human interset involving story 5 stars
Several unexpected twists that managed to redeem the sudden "resurrection" of Pendergast's wife in the previous book. The book has now put in place another supervillain in place for future instalments
It's Pendergast back in action after brief downward spiral and it does get better than this but not by much. It has Pendergast which guarantees a good read! Odd things in life, depressed after ordeal w/ thought to be dead but not wife, bizarre murders in NYC where DNA purposefully left. D'Agosta, a tough but compassionate cop asks his FBI Buddy for help, next thing you know Pendergast finds he has twins & one follows the family penchant for insanity & cruelness. A chase & suddenly Pendergast in S America, a town full of secrets, nazis, experimentation, twins everywhere, nazi underground island mountain blow-up, Pendergast has met his match. Great ending to this trilogy, his son eerily familiar to brother Diogenes and certain to be in upcoming novel. Much better read in correct order but if read alone is still an exciting thrill ride of a book!
The trilogy is tied up with a neat bow at the end. Whoever knew that Aloysius Xingu L. Pendergast was human outside of his undertaker suits, pale/translucent complexion and deep southern acccent. Definately worth the wait. To enjoy this set, one needs to read all the books in sequence. The sequence been:
This is the worst book ever! It was so painful to listen to this horrific story. Talk about throwing in some full grown kids, both are so unlikeable. I wish Diogenes was around to put me out of my misery. Better yet, how about locking all of them in a sanatorium along with the writers. Skip this novel and pray for a better.
Once again Preston/Childs do it again - what a wonderful book i really want it to continue. I highly recomment it.
Two Graves --- by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child. Now here’s a mystery novel that ploughs ahead with a truckload of suspense; Brazilian Nazis; Uebermensch breeding programs; volcanoes that blow up conveniently under the bad guy’s lair and a whole bunch of other improbable stuff. There’s lots of stuff to raise a whole farm of gaenzehaut . But is it a good read you ask? Of course it is. Not only that but P&Cs’ novel will also enrich your vocabulary or send you scurrying to a good woerterbuch
Wow, bad ending to a bad trilogy. I liked the Pendergast series until the last three books. I can only hope that the next one is better....I won't hold my breath.
