    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

    While not up to the caliber of Cabinet of Curiousities or Brimstone this is a very entertaining book. The inclusion of NYC history added to the story.
    The narrator does a very good job.

    All of the geniuses in Six Great Scientists - Copernicus, Galileo, Newton, Darwin, Curie, and Einstein - had one thing in common: the determination to do scientific research whatever the obstacles. They all had the imagination to conceive great ideas and the force of will not to be defeated. Their stories renew our confidence in the human spirit. They remind us of the advancements that can result when men and women have the ability and courage to achieve great things.

    Overall

    I found this book to be little more than a few comments about the lives of these great people with little or no real insight into their amazing accomplishments. This is the same material one might find in an encyclopedia.
    The reader was almost monotone which leads me to believe he didn't understand what he was reading.
    Try Gibbons "The Scientists." MUCH better book.
