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
As always, Preston and Child gave us another excellent story and Rene Auberjonois a perfect read.
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.
Yes, to anyone who liked Preston/Child's Pendergast series. It is a fun short story with lots of Pendergast atmosphere.
When a young Pendergast finds out he may be mistaken about his younger brother's superstitions.
Be careful of the Tooth Fairy
Has a nice little bonus at the end of an upcoming Pendergast book preview.
Pendergast is among my favorite characters ever. Short story or long, the authors paint a picture that captures the imagination.
With a longer story, if you don't catch a detail here or there, you can make it up in context by listening to the rest of the story. Sadly, I missed a detail towards the end and realize the short story was over. This was complicated by the fact that at the end of the story and credits, part of another Pendergast novel plays for about 15 minutes. The middle of one of the other books. Did someone fell asleep at the engineering board and no one has caught it? Is part of it missing?
I'll give it another listen from beginning to end and it will probably make sense--it will only take about 48 mins--not the 67 mins Audible states.
Someone please check this.
I am a huge Pendergast fan but this story felt contrived. I was expecting far better, which I suppose is a compliment.
This short story is the literary equivalent of a Twinkie. It hits the spot if you're really hungry for an inexpensive snack but you would be better off eating a regular meal.
