Can Corrie and Pendergast Solve an Old Mystery?

Pendergast must rescue young Corrie Swenson again. In this one a story told by Oscar Wilde to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle sets the stage for the whole book. Corrie comes across this story in Doyle's diary and gets an idea for writing her thesis. This takes her to Roaring Fork, Colorado where she immediately winds up in jail, and is facing a long prison term. It is obvious that the powers of the town want her research squelched and are hiding a big secret. On top of that there is a serial arsonist setting mansions in Roaring Fork on fire.

It is up to Pendergast to get Corrie out of her jam and to help her solve the mysteries of Roaring Fork. on top of that he needs to try to calm down Corrie's stubborn behavior and pig-headedness which keeps getting her into dangerous situations. There is a lot of tense moments and the story is written in a very crisp manner that never gets boring. The authors even have an "unpublished" Doyle Sherlock Holmes tale that reads a lot like the author's own style.

This is not the best Pendergast tale but it is a very good one. I give it 4 stars.
