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'.
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.
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.
