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.
very well. Short concise story and top of the line performance.
The visit by a young Pendergast to the home of the "Tooth Fairy"
Pendergast eclipses all other characters
Yes, short and ... perhaps savored is the best term here.
While not part of the larger Pendergast story arcs, it does provide insight to fans of the agents early days growing up. As such, recommended for any fan.
