    At different times towards the end I would stand up and continue reading. I felt part of it and I smiled when it ended. Wow!

    "SWEET". I will read all and any. I look for a story that "takes me away". This was a great read. Could not wait to get back to it. The finish was a mathematical surprise that force a move by me into a series of research and investigation that ended nicely. Fellas, please continue ur story telling. Thanxs
  • Maybe the best book in the series

    I have read all the Pendergast books so far and this is one of the best. I really like this series. Well written and very good character development. Pendergast is probably one of my all time favorite characters. He reminds me of Sherlock Holmes.
  • Great read!

    If you love Pendergast, you won't be disappointed. However, though the authors try hard to make each of their novels stand-alone, I feel you'd miss a lot of the subtleties of the character interactions if you are unfamiliar with their personalities and peccadilloes from at least one or two of the previous novels. For example -- no spoiler, here -- a few specific interactions between Pendergast and Constance are especially worrisome in this novel when you know how out of character his words to her are in a few chapters. If you don't know the characters well to begin with, this behavior will have less impact for you. That aside, I found the story, the writing and the editing to be very tight, making it a quick, fun, engrossing read. I will read everything these two collaborate on, as I have for many years, but like many, I especially enjoy those works that feature Agent Pendergast. P.S. I did find three typos, which was uncharacteristic.
