The thrillers of Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child "stand head and shoulders above their rivals" (Publishers Weekly). Preston and Child's Relic and The Cabinet of Curiosities were chosen by readers in a National Public Radio poll as being among the one hundred greatest thrillers ever written, and Relic was made into a number-one box office hit movie. They are coauthors of the famed Pendergast series and their recent novels include Fever Dream, Cold Vengeance, Two Graves, and Gideon's Corpse. In addition to his novels, Preston writes about archaeology for the New Yorker and Smithsonian magazines. Lincoln Child is a former book editor who has published five novels of his own, including the huge bestseller Deep Storm.
Readers can sign up for The Pendergast File, a monthly "strangely entertaining note" from the authors, at their website, www.PrestonChild.com. The authors welcome visitors to their alarmingly active Facebook page, where they post regularly.
Odd but brilliant, Special Agent Aloysius Pendergast returns in this fascinating thriller. Still mourning the death of his wife 12 years earlier while on safari in Africa, Pendergast now discovers the killing was not an accident. Narrator René Auberjonois is equally adept at portraying Pendergast's upper-crust Southern origins and New York cop Vincent D'Agosta's brusque directness. With Auberjonois's consistent narration, the quirky threads of the story--which include a disease carried by rare parakeets, a lost painting by John James Audubon, and corruption in Africa--eventually come together to create an intriguing premise. As Pendergast discovers that his beloved wife kept a myriad of secrets, Auberjonois's characterization dramatizes the special agent's confusion over his wife's loyalty.
