    After his wife, Helen, is brazenly abducted before his eyes, Special Agent Pendergast furiously pursues the kidnappers, chasing them across the country and into Mexico. But then, things go terribly, tragically wrong; the kidnappers escape; and a shattered Pendergast retreats to his New York apartment and shuts out the world. But when a string of bizarre murders erupts across several Manhattan hotels, NYPD Lieutenant D'Agosta asks his friend Pendergast for help.

    Story

    First, Rene Auberjonis is PERFECT in all of the Pendergast books. What James Marsters is to Harry Dresden, Rene is to Pendergast.

    The plot here certainly strains your "suspension of disbelief" limits, over and over. Pendergast sometimes seems more like James Bond than Sherlock Holmes.

    But when all is said and done, it's a fine conclusion to this 'trilogy'.

    Only a handful of people in the world know that mankind's magic comes from a living creature, and it is a refugee from another universe. The Power showed up here in the 1850s because it was running from something. Now it is 1933, and the Power's hiding place has been discovered by a killer. It is a predator that eats magic and leaves destroyed worlds in its wake. Earth is next. Former private eye Jake Sullivan knows the score. The problem is, hardly anyone believes him.

    Story

    A perfect ending to this "trilogy", though if he decides to bring them back for an "encore", I certainly won't complain. I really, really enjoyed this entire series, even if it's hard to describe the plot without it sounding sort of silly (Magic, hard boiled detectives, Samurai, space aliens, ..... and on and on) . It's not silly at all, trust me on that. The story draws you in and moves along faster than anything I can ever remember. And finally, Bronson Pinchot is simply incredible, and his narration adds so much to a book that is already just about perfect. As good as Rene Auberjonis is for Pendergast, and James Marsters is to Harry Dresden, which is about as high praise as I can imagine.

    A middle-aged man returns to his childhood home to attend a funeral. He is drawn to the farm at the end of the road, where, when he was seven, he encountered a most remarkable girl, Lettie Hempstock. Forty years earlier, a man committed suicide in a stolen car at this farm at the end of the road. Like a fuse on a firework, his death lit a touchpaper. The darkness was unleashed, something scary and thoroughly incomprehensible to a little boy. And Lettie - magical, comforting, wise beyond her years - promised to protect him, no matter what.

    Story

    Just finished this and it makes me wonder if I should have given some of my other books reviewed 5 stars, as then this should be 6. A remarkable, if difficult to describe, story. And Neil Gaiman does a wonderful job at reading his work. Even the "acknowledgments" at the end were interesting and worth the listen.
