    Captain Hayward leads the official homocide investigation, while Pendergast, D'Agosta, and Nora undertake a private quest for the truth. Their serpentine journey takes them into a part of Manhattan they never imagined could exist: a secretive and deadly hotbed of Obeah, the West Indian Zombii cult of sorcery and magic. And it is here they find their true peril is just beginning.

    Overall

    Having once been a fan of the collaborations of Preston and Child, I have been increasingly disappointed by their latest efforts. This book followed a downward trend, that I hoped would have reversed direction. The story is rather predictable and never reaches the potential created by the opening scenes. The main characters, familiar from multiple adventures, have lost their shine and the storyline its ability to grab me by the collar and by doing so its ability to demand my attention. I am glad I was able to multitask while listening to the story rather than wasting my time reading it, which probably saves the book from an even lower rating. Most Preston and Child veterans will, I'm afraid, be disappointed. Those unfamiliar with their works should move down the shelf to their earlier, much more entertaining, works.
