Another Great Pendergast Tale!

Special Agent Pendergast has evolved to be Preston & Child's focal point. In each of their novels they seem to release a little more information about him.

In this book he has evolved to be the equal of Sherlock Holmes with a little bit of Houdini thrown in. He now has a police sidekick (Officer D'Agosta) just like Holmes had his Doctor Watson and the book sets up for a showdown with Pendergast's evil older brother (a la Mycroft Holmes).

The book seems to go in several directions from devil conjurings to supernatural-like deaths to terrorists to valuable antiquities. Through it all, the authors seem to hit their stride with Pendergast and D'Agosta who make a nice complementary team. I know the authors are busy with a lot of solo projects these days but I hope they follow-through with the continuation that this book promises.
