No BS Money Guy
We get see a different side of Pendergast and it's a little scary. Story is little hard to believe and not quite as well thought out as rest of the series(personal opinion) so I went 4 stars. As always the narrator was awesome and the story caught me by surprise. I am sure revealing new and exciting character traits to such a well documented series is difficult. So Great Book Enjoy and if you say 5 stars...I probably would not argue!
I have been tough on two of my favorite writers for their last few efforts. They really upset me with their seeming lack of care for their customers and fans...especially with the last two books. However, there were quite a few moments while reading this book that I noted I had to come clean and give them kudos again. They redeemed themselves in many ways.
I do not need to go into detail as other reviewers will but suffice it to say that all of the characters in the series make an appearance, like a cast curtain call, many of them with their amazing stories completed. The primary story line, Pendergast's, is a satisfying roller-coaster ride with twists and turns that keep the pitch high. Exotic, interesting locales and a host of new, dark and interesting characters make it a satisfying journey.
If you are a fan of these two authors you can be assured that this effort is among their better work...not their best...but highly recommendable, finely crafted, entertaining and a wild ride.
The series narrator is above criticism and is among the best out there...
Did not read written.
If you are a reader of the two writers this story continues the search for Helen's killers.Once again they have Pendergast fighting for his life.
I believe that there were things that were unnecessary for the book and the story would be just as great with these details left out. These things did not add to the characters actions.
Great as always. I look for him when I am searching for new books to listen to
There were two times that the story was sad, I do not usually cry. There are times that you worry if he is going to get out of the situation, but then you think. The other story line with Constance is also a continuation from the previous book unbelievable!
I have read every book and and found this to be just as trilling and waiting to see what will happen as the story lines weave in and out.
This is no doubt the best Pendergast novel to date. Lots of action, twists and turns and many surprises. Don't pass this one up. 5 STARS
You don't want to put this book down if reading or if listening to Audible you won't want to turn it off.
Pendergast...Rene Auberjonois is fantastic with all the characters.
There were quite a few moving elements to the story but I will not name any in particular. I do not want to ruin any aspect of the story for other listeners or readers.
I hope Rene Auberjonois continues doing the Pendergast novels. He is great.
Writing the brilliantly eccentric FBI Agent Pentergast would seem to be difficult to me, but Preston & Child bring him to vibrant life once again! With his evil brother gone--or is he? An amazing twist to the complicated web of deceit and betrayal that will give the series years of more material and keep all of us readers glued to our seats!
I'm a bibliophile since early childhood. Love speculative fiction, odd premises, mystery novels that teach about different places and times.
I love the Prendergast mysteries. They're not probable or sensible. They're largely character driven. They wouldn't be quite so wonderful if the characters weren't so marvelous. They're complicated, difficult, odd and very very interesting.
This tied up a number of story lines, about his wife, about his ward. I wouldn't call it great literature. but it was a lot of fun.
Oh yes it was fun and it the style of these two authors I love.
When Pendagast one of my most beloved characters discovered he has a son. I was floored and happy for him!
Oh Rene is incredible, with his years of experience as a well seasoned actor he really helps make this book a huge winner. Hope they use Rene more.
Yes when Dr. Felder (?spelling) realised he was in love with Constance, I had suspected as much but you all know how men can be, stupid about love! LOL!
I am never disappointed by Preston and Child I love their stuff. I am a 55 year old female, married 38 years, with children and grandchildren and I am an elected official in my county. I love the way their books take me out of my everyday life into adventure, fun and sometimes scary stuff!
Never enough books
Yes, the plot is intricate and twisting. It was so complicated and I was so interested in finding out what would happen next. I am sure I missed things
Kept me on the edge of my seat. Couldn't put it down.
Twins, one for living and one for parts! Only in a Pendergast novel and this is only one segment. Great book as always.
I have been reading through the series and this review covers my thoughts on the series.
First, both narrators did a great job. My personal preference is to have one narrator for a series, but reality is that these are two great narrators.
Second, I have found the whole series great. I read comments that the series is losing its luster. I couldn't disagree more. The character development and intrigue moves forward through each book.
Third, If I were to knock anything with this last book ** Spoiler Alert ** the plot goes so close to some other books/movies. I also find it interesting to tie in a similar situation for Pendagrast that he had with his brother now his son. I will be interested in seeing how this character develops.
I look forward to the next book.
