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 am an avid listener. I listen between 75-100 hours per month on my iPhone: 60% fiction to 40% non-fiction.
This is a short teaser before the up coming release of the next Pendergast novel. As always, his stories are chilling. This story is from his childhood and told to Constance in the living room of their house in New York. It is suitably disturbing in the traditional manner. It is worth the hour. Pop open your wallet and pay cash. Thumbs up.
While I hunger for more Agent Pendergast this was a little predictable. The narrator was excellent and the story fair.
It is a fun short story. I think it may become a halloween favorite!
One of my all time favorite fictional characters is Pendergast.
To me he brings Pendergast to life. When i read the books i hear his voice.
Not really. i felt it was pretty entertaining all the way thru. Of course the disappearance of the uncle was a great touch.
I plan on sharing it with my grandkids when they are old enough~
Author, rabid Audible listener.
As far as short stories go, this was a good one. It is basically a tale of a mysterious man considered by young kids to be a very evil tooth fairy. The whole story takes place as Pendergast and his friends enjoy themselves before dinner. The story is short but it sheds some new light on Diogenes and perhaps Pendergast's future life choices.
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.
Tell us about yourself!
Once again Pendergast is entertaining, eerie, and thought provoking.
The release at Halloween was time appropriate. The story adds another piece to the odd relationship between the Pendergast boys as they grew up. There is just the right amount of reality and the bizarre to make this a great addition to the saga.
Preston and Child continue to write unique situations for Pendergast. I do not hesitate to buy the new releases.
Rene Auberjonois is always a delightful narrator.
Currently a local truck driver who has hours to listen to my audio books. I am hooked, some of my fellow drivers enjoy them also
It fit into all the other characters in previous stories and was informative
Yes, it is very detailed and doesn't slow down
WOW Mr Auberjonis is without a doubt one of the best, his accented speech makes each
character come to life, He makes Pendergast very special along with each of the rest. Please don't retire anytime soon OK
That is a great title for this story Leave it alone
Look forward to more from Mr Preston and Mr Child the are a team that can spin a very good yarn
I'm a father of four and a husband of one. I am a big fan of The Pendergast series by Preston and Child as well as Dan Brown's Robert Langdon books. James Rollins' Sigma Force series is also one that I am always anxious to see. My favorite author of all though is easily Bill Bryson.
The tone and mood put me in mind of a Halloween story. The narrator does his usual excellent job and the story manages to capture the esscence of Pendergast wonderfully in such an short tale. Fans of the series will not be dissapointed in the least!
When Pendergast and his father enter the old mansion and discover its gruesomeness.
I have heard all of Mr. Auberjonois's narrations of the Pendergast series and in this short story he continues his great work.
Sometimes the Boogyman is real.
Definitely a recommended read for Preston/Child fans.
Edge of my seat? Well, no, but it kept my earbuds in my ears. I listened to the entire story in a single go.
Pendergast is always my favorite. He even showed a little more emotion than usual in this story.
My only disappointment was in finding that the actual story was only about 50 minutes long. The remainder of the recording was devoted to the first (second?) chapter of the upcoming novel Two Graves.
