From number-one New York Times best-selling authors Preston & Child, an all-new short story featuring Agent Pendergast, available only as an ebook and audio download.
In New Orleans' French Quarter, the Tooth Fairy isn't a benevolent sprite who slips money under your pillow at night.... He's a mysterious old recluse who must be appeased with teeth - lest he extract retribution. When young Diogenes Pendergast loses a tooth, however, his skeptical older brother Aloysius is determined to put the legend to the test...with dire consequences.

Typically convoluted and fascinating Pendergast short story--great for Halloween or around a campfire. Pay the small price, but don't use a credit, as it is so short. But definitely worth getting!
I'm a serious Audible Junkie, just can't get enough of this great company.
Yes, kinda addicted to this series.
Okay, for a short story, how far can you go in a short time, make sure you've listended to other Pendergast stuff otherwise you wont know the characters.
Good speaking voice, like listening to an old friend tell a good story
Probably not, too short
I double and triple checked to make sure I had not somehow neglected to add the final chapters of this short story.
Calling it a story is an exaggeration since it was at most a snippet of a story. When it abruptly ended I was very surprised since it was such a non-story.
Even at this reduced price this is a rip-off.
I LOVE the Pendergast character, but this is so short and so shallow it is a total waste of time. First, the narration ends a full twenty minutes before the recording does, so the story itself is less than 40 minutes long; its a cheesy trick to sell this as an hour plus recording of a short story. Second, the plot and storyline are so facile, its hard to believe it is written by the same people who wrote RELIC, RELIQUARY, etc. I bought this to tide me over until the next book, but there was nothing there. Nothing.
No, I love the Agent Pendergast books, but this short story was a little different from the other books and for some reason bothered me. I found it a little too gruesome. Maybe a part of Agent Pendergast's childhood we didn't really need to hear about.
The short story actually only took up about 45 minutes or so of the audio. The last 15 minutes or so were an excerpt from another book. Since it didn't really tell you which one it had no real redeeming value to being added, although it was interesting. All you could glean from it was Pendergast trying to find his wife Helen and what was happening to Helen at the time.
While I hunger for more Agent Pendergast this was a little predictable. The narrator was excellent and the story fair.
yes of course!!
It solves a mystery all Pendergas fans have wondered about.
Wonderful story telling... I love his honeyed voice.
I didn't realize that this story actually tells the reader what we have always wanted to know.
I loved it.
It is right up,there with other detective stories. It was too,short but I knew it was a short story.
Not really but it wasn't a mystery it was like a ghost story from his childhood. Pendergast is telling a scary story to his protege. It was good.
I always like Rene's performance as Pendergast. His voice is Pendergast. He has the drawl and the superior attitude down perfectly.
Nothing extreme. I just found it a very nice story.
Yes. It gives, as in the other Pendergast books, a detailed description of atmosphere and setting; the things I like in a story.
An interesting and somewhat gory alternative to the tooth fairy. And it has Pendergast in it.
He always brings an erie atmosphere to the Pendergast stories. The voices of Pendergast and Constance are really well performed and grasp your attention. I truly appreciate his narration.
No, not really. The scene where young Pendergast is in the Dufour house with his father is a bit scary though. And Pendergast having been a real bully to his younger brother and realizing it later was remarkable.
Truly recommend this story. Pay for it, spend no credit.
