Gripping, suspenseful story
The character building that Preston and Child do is fantastic. You really feel the depth of them.
The chase scene where they are being chased by the assassin towards the monastery. The reader, Scott Brick, did an astounding job on it (and it was well written, which helps).
The development of the Reverend's character was particularly moving. They crafted him and built him into such a powerful character. You can see some of the same things that actually happened during the Occupy Wall Street protests. But this book was written 7-8 years before the protests.
Please produce the rest of the Preston/Child library unabridged. As I have already done, I will snatch them up as soon as they come available. I love this series and Mr. Brick's narration of it.
good story line. well written,pleasure to listen to.
it kept me interested.
the end, when the villain got "his".
I hadn't read this and was hoping the unabridged audio book would come out and it was worth the wait. Scott Brick does a great job narrating the story and this one fills in the gaps from the rest if you haven't read the books, some very important. Great story. As usual, great twists and turns from Preston and Child. Great book - get it if you haven't (or even if you have) read it.

I have rarely had an unexceptional book from these two. They deliver another hit with a good twist. 5/5
The plot and Pendergast's antics kept me wondering what would happen next.
His narration fits the story and keeps the story moving.
I always enjoy this series and love listening to it on my iPod on the train.Hope they keep coming.
Book five in a series currently containing eleven books...and the quality of writing is such that reading out of order may fill in gaps but does not detract from the story at hand. Plus I really like the genteel southern gentleman depicted in the character of pendergast. He its an FBI agent I would like to meet and know.
I had read a book from a new series this pair of authors is starting. It was not on par with this series, and I was concerned their quality was waning. This book reversed that concern.
The story was well thought out and did not disappoint. Very suspenseful and gotta love Scott Brick for a wonderful narration. I can't wait to listen to the rest of the Pendergast series.
I enjoy audio more because I can listen while I work.
The discovery of the villain.
It sounded like this would be a good story, but I finally gave up because the language was so trashy. I wish there was ratings for books like for movies so I could avoid foul language. Really wasted my money on this one.
