9780752882895: The Dance of Death

Praised as a "ruthless descendant of Holmes" (Publishers Weekly), Agent Pendergast has become one of crime fiction's most endearing characters. His greatest enemy is one who has stalked him all of his life, his cunning and diabolical brother Diogenes. And Diogenes has thrown down the gauntlet.
Now, several of the people closest to Pendergast are viciously murdered, and Pendergast is framed for the deeds. On the run from federal authorities, with only the help of his old friend NYPD Lieutenant Vincent D'Agosta, Pendergast must stop his brother. But how can he stop a man that is his intellectual equal--one who has had twenty years to plan the world's most horrendous crime?

About the Author:

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.

From AudioFile:

In a follow-up to the Audie Award-winning BRIMSTONE, authors Preston and Child again team up with actor René Auberjonois on a story that stretches the boundaries of thriller fiction. Against the backdrop of New York's Museum of Natural History, Lieutenant Vincent D'Agosta and mysterious FBI Agent Aloysius Pendergast try to track down Pendergast's misanthropic brother, who is murdering Pendergast's acquaintances, one by one. Auberjonois puts carefully calculated emotion and intensity into all his characters--good or evil, flawed or seemingly superhuman--to a completely satisfying effect. At the close of this reading, the authors "interview" the fictional Agent Pendergast. S.E.S. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
