    Hidden deep beneath Manhattan lies a warren of tunnels, sewers, and galleries, mostly forgotten by those who walk the streets above. There lies the ultimate secret of the Museum Beast. When two grotesquely deformed skeletons are found deep in the mud off the Manhattan shoreline, museum curator Margo Green is called in to aid the investigation.

    Overall

    I absolutely love the Agent Pendergast series! I hope Audible adds the rest of these great books to their line up. This is a great mystery that I had a hard time turning off, because I wanted to know what was going to happen next.

    The only reason I gave this 4 stars instead of 5 is that Rene Auberjonois's voice for Agent Pendergast is so perfect that every other narrator's attempt to capture his voice pales in comparison. Plus, his voice for Bill Smithback is a touch on the annoying side. But these things are so minor that they do not detract from the great story at all!

    Synthesizing the work of thinkers including Freud, Diderot, Nietzsche, and Einstein, delineating the enticing strategies of characters throughout history, The Art of Seduction is a comprehensive guide to getting what we want - any way we can. Controversial but never dull, timeless and up-to-date, it's destined to be Greene's next best seller.

    "Valuable info in an icky package"
    Overall

    After listening to this, I felt like I wanted to take a 6 hour shower to rinse the filth off. This book is icky and, at times, I cringed and even caught myself saying out loud, "Oh ewww..." once or twice. BUT, the information in the book would definitely give one the knowledge to avoid being a "victim" or "prey" (the authors words!) for a seducer. Forewarned is forearmed.

    The quality of the actual audiobook is good. I didn't mind the narrator, although I can see how others might. The tone he uses in the preview is the tone he uses for the entire book. It does move at a nice pace. I did actually like the historical examples and the fact this book is not geared to just men. If a woman were looking for how to be a seductress, there is plenty here.
