Thoroughly enjoyed the read. It shows a bit more insight into Agent Pendergast without divulging too much and introduces a Sherlock vs Moriarty (sp?) element to the tales.
Once again I was swept up in the honey sweet voice Scott Brick uses for Pendergast. His talents continue with the other characters who are familiar now. The story took us through interesting places descriptive enough to imagine being there. Another Preston & Child thriller!! Thank You!
Teacher and family man.
Scott Brick delivers another excellent performance, one that conveys the raw emotions of the characters throughout the spectrum. Brick has become one of my two favorite narrators, with James Marsters' of The Dresden Files being the other. Brick portrays female characters believably, without attempting to oversell the gender difference. His command of accents too has been very believable, though at times his Long Island is a bit too harsh (speaking as a lifelong Long Islander myself).
Preston and Child have produced a magnificent series with the Pendergast novels. Though always intriguing and fraught with surprise, this has the most complex plot of the series to date. The intellectual dual between the Pendergast brothers is a study in genius and one-up-manship. The only element of the series that waned in this novel is the historical teaching so prevalent in the previous editions. I suppose the Native American subplot could suffice, but only to a point. However, as the primary focus was on the Pendergasts the criticism is a bit trite.
This novel is an essential part of the Pendergast series.
I like reading/hearing about the twists and turns of Special Agent Pendergast. Great read!
I always listen to this while driving, taking a walk, and doing my chores.
