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.

When archaeologist Nora Kelly is called to a building sitewhere a long-buried body is found, she little expects to be embarkingon the path of a mystery that will lead back to the last century, withdanger reaching into the present. This is an intense and interestingstory, entwining the quest for eternal life with the history ofAmerica, New York, and present-day politics and influence. RenéAuberjonois crafts his narration with great care; each word is voicedwith perfect tone, pitch, and emotion, and each character is providedwith a fitting personality. The result is narration that flowsbeautifully while providing insight into the story and those whoinhabit it. Satisfyingly imbued with thrills and suspense, the proseis fully realized in Auberjonois's performance, and he even manages tomake some of the more fantastic aspects seem reasonable. A totallyengrossing experience. M.A.M. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award© AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
