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.

I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!
This is a creepy but cute 45 minute short story from from Perdergast's childhood in New Orleans. I'm aware that narrator Rene Auberjonois gets rave reviews for the Pendergast novels he narrates, but I'm not a fan.
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!
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.
While I hunger for more Agent Pendergast this was a little predictable. The narrator was excellent and the story fair.
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.
Hi, I'm a university honors graduate w/ military background. I hope my reviews help u decide if a book is right 4U or not. Happy listening!
Dear authors, I know you can do better! I may have found this scary and unpredictable when I was about 9y/o, but most of your fans are not children! Some of these novels have been fantastic, but sadly, some have been sub-par, and others just flat-out garbage. I feel you're going too fast, cutting corners, churning out product for pay instead of literature for fans (it's now 2016) and I'm a very, very disappointed fan, literally on the verge of becoming a "former" fan. Please, slow down, or devote more time, and stop sacrificing the sanctity and dignity of your own characters. It is truly heartbreaking to become so attached to and/or proud of characters, only to have you needlessly destroy the best parts of them, as well as their relationships with Pendergast, to bend a storyline into submission. I haven't "loved" one of your stories since "Wheel of Darkness". Please, please, please, bring back the Pendergast & Co. that we love, not the tortured, twisted, broken self-loathing soul he's turned into. He should never again become the victim in his own story, it's a tired, failed avenue. We need Pendergast the pseudo-superhero with that slick Southern gent Pendergast 'tude!
It is a short story with an interesting, grisly twist on the tooth fairy.
When young Pendergast enters the old mansion of the bogus tooth fairy with his father.
He is an actor and brings the story to life in his own way.
Pendergast of course!
I enjoyed this short story however the last 18 minutes or so are not part of it. Because of this and the price I felt a little cheated.
This standalone short story is just the right amount of creepy. terrific narration as well as content: I enjoyed the glimpses into the childhood of the Pendergast boys.
