Publisher's Summary

Hidden deep beneath Manhattan lies a warren of tunnels, sewers, and galleries, mostly forgotten by those who walk the streets above. There lies the ultimate secret of the Museum Beast.

When two grotesquely deformed skeletons are found deep in the mud off the Manhattan shoreline, museum curator Margo Green is called in to aid the investigation. Margo must once again team up with police lieutenant D'Agosta and FBI agent Pendergast, as well as the brilliant Dr. Frock, to try and solve the puzzle. The trail soon leads deep underground, where they will face the awakening of a slumbering nightmare.

Prolong the suspense: listen to the first book, Relic.

What the Critics Say

The netherworld of New York City...proves as shuddery a setting for the authors' latest scientific monster mash as the American Museum of Natural History did for their bestselling Relic, to which this is the sequel. (Publishers Weekly)
"This should do for the New York subway system what Jaws did for Long Island beaches." (Booklist)
"Dick Hill's reading of this fascinating sequel to Relic builds the suspense and horror." (AudioFile)

    Story
    "A discovery of an old favorite."

    I originally started this series when I was in Jr high . After watching Relic on Netflix I decided to find the series that I once so enjoyed. This second book brings back characters that are familiar and enjoyable. The flow of the story at times was slow but that may have been since I knew the ending before starting. I easily though slid into my own imaginings of this book while listening Dick Hill narrate. The descriptions gave me enough details to begin the image and allowed my imagination to complete it. Do you know what lies under the city streets? You may be surprised! If you have not read the first book please read Relic.

    "Couldn't get past the bad narration"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I recommend the book, but if they've listened to any of the other audio books the narration for this one is really lacking.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    It's a Pendergast novel for a reason.


    What didn’t you like about Dick Hill’s performance?

    When listening to Rene Aberjonois you hear individual characters, when listening to Dick you hear one person speaking for all the characters.

    "Pendergast never disappoints!"

    I live everything about this book except the narrator, I've come to love Renee A. Who reads the later books, and is phenomenal. So it's hard for me to listen to the other narrator. However it's an excellent book.

    "Wordy but good story."

    The first two Pendergast novels show Preston and Child finding his voice. This book gives us a better look at our favorite FBI agent and whets our appetite for more about who he is. We need Relic and Reliquary to set the stage for the rest of the series.

    Story
    "Here there be monsters."

    The second novel in the expansive Pendergast series is the same level of techno-thriller as it's predecessor. The returning cast are all excellently evolved(science joke as well as literary) and the reader does a brilliant performance recreating their imagined personalities. If you crave mystery, intrigue, and a splattering of real world personality and possibility then look no further. Prequel required reading.

    Really enjoyed this performance and story ...but read Relic first. It really sets the stage for this one.....and was equally enjoyable.

    "This story stays with me."

    It has been a couple of months since I listened to this and while I don't recall all of the characters or all of the story, enough has stayed with me to remember it's impact on me and to want to "read" more. I have to backtrack to the first story before continuing forward but I feel certain I will go through the whole series. Consider this book as very credit-worthy.

    "Satisfying Sequel to Relic"

    Although Relic was exciting and I thoroughly enjoyed it, this sequel took it up a notch or two. The action starts about 18 months after the ending in Relic. There's more action and suspense, a little heart-wrenching at times, and a very big surprise that I didn't see coming until shortly before it was revealed (there was a slight hint). A very nice ending to what was started in Relic.

    The narrator did a great job drawing you into the story as well.
