Review: This is my third book I've read by Preston and Child and I liked this way more than The Ice Limit. It might equal Two Graves as an intense adventure. This also introduces audiences to Pendergast for the second time. The Relic is the predecessor to this book. It was not necessary to have read The Relic. The gaps were nicely filled in for me and had no trouble following the story. The story is fast paced and very interesting.
The story comes from multiple characters that intertwine evenly and fairly. Though it is marketed as a Pendergast story, he is not the star nor the hero that saves everyone.
Dick Hill is the reader and he always does a wonderful job. I was originally drawn by the authors and to see that Dick Hill read it, was the icing on the cake.
Brilliance Audio is the publisher and they always do an excellent job. My favorite little tidbit is that they play a little interlude at the end of the CD to tell you the disc is finished. It's helpful to me and I really like it.
I can recommend this with out reservations. Pick it up.
