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.
What happens when enigmatic FBI Agent Aloysius Pendergast meets the anti-Buddha? Pendergast and his ward, Constance, travel to the remote Gsalrig Chongg monastery in Tibet for meditation and martial arts. There they learn that a relic holding the power to wipe out humankind has been stolen. The world faces physical and metaphysical peril, and Pendergast must do battle with this ancient ominous force. In a coolly understated performance, Ren Auberjonois subtly heightens the ever-increasing tension as Constance and Pendergast board the luxury liner BRITTANIA on its maiden voyage, searching for the madman bent on world destruction. Auberjonoiss deceptively ordinary voice pulls listeners into Preston and Childs world, where science, mysticism, and melodrama reign supreme. Lots of fun! S.J.H.
