    Story

    Behind the gates of a fabulous Hampton estate, FBI Special Agent Pendergast discovers the carnage of a gruesome crime, a nightmare of seemingly supernatural origin. The smoldering remains of infamous art critic Jeremy Grove, a melted cross branding his chest, are found in a locked, barricaded attic. The hoofprint singed into the floorboards and the smell of brimstone recall the legendary horrors that befall those who make a pact with the Devil.

    Jody R. Nathan says: "Couldn't put it down"
    "Jerkily abridged"
    Overall

    I have followed the career of Special Agent A. Pendergast since his first deliciously horrible experiences in the New York Museum of Natural History. The descriptions in the earlier books were lovingly detailed and I agonized and thrilled and lived several hours a day with the characters. "Brimstone" promised to be a wonderful sequel to the series but was badly ripped apart in this version. There are no transitions from one scene to another. You are abruptly ripped from one point in the story and kicked into another. Several times I "scrolled" back to see if I'd dropped off to sleep and missed something. But no, it was the sound editor's blue pencil butchering the narrative. If there is a full length verion out there, that's what you should hear.

    The tomb of China’s First Emperor, guarded by an underground army of terra-cotta warriors, has remained sealed for more than 2,000 years. Though it’s regarded as one of the greatest archaeological sites in the world, the Chinese government won’t allow anyone to open it. Why? That question is at the heart of a dilemma faced by former Justice Department operative Cotton Malone, whose life is shattered when he receives an anonymous note carrying an unfamiliar Web address.

    Jackie says: "Fascinating Ride!"
    "A really great read (or rather, listen)"
    Overall

    It's a 45 minute drive from home to work (30 minutes if I take the toll road and spend the bucks). This is a thriller which has made the hour to hour-and-a-half drive per day into a delight. Get into the car, warm up, connect the iPod and I'm half way 'round the world. I am in two bodies, one concientiously navigating the road to work (or home) while the other experiences the tension, excitement and adventures of the heroes. The level of detail about the terracotta warriors, the heat & humidity of the south China countryside, the villainy, the descriptions. I just have to drive around the block again to get through the chapter.
