    In an ancient tunnel underneath New York City a charnel house is discovered. Inside are 36 bodies all murdered and mutilated more than a century ago. While FBI agent Pendergast investigates the old crimes, identical killings start to terrorize the city. The nightmare has begun. Again.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The book had an interesting premise and Preston and Child were very good at keeping our FBI agent Pendergast as quirky and enigmatic as ever. I did not like Jonathan Morosz's reading. It sounded like reading, with little difference in voices and Pendergast's southern dialect really poorly done. But the most irksome part of listening to this book was the numerous miscues with editing. Whole sections were read twice, which would jolt me from the story every time.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Jonathan Marosz?

    I enjoy Dick Hill's performances. Scott Brick also comes to mind. Don't know who edits these, but definitely needed a better editor!


    Was The Cabinet of Curiosities worth the listening time?

    Although fairly predictable, I enjoyed the story.
