    "Scott Brick does it again."

    Great characters and good story. But Scott Brick is the real star. His narration is second to none.

    "THERES SOMETHING ABOUT PENDERGAST..."
    What made the experience of listening to Dance of Death the most enjoyable?

    The narration, by Scott Brick, is the key to this series, along with Pendergast himself, of course. Mr. Brick does a superb job with the voice of the Pendergast brothers, especially. He also makes the new Evonovich series come to life, and adds that special something to all of his work!


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    This book is one of the best in the series, in my opinion. It is fast paced, with twist and turns in every direction.


    Have you listened to any of Scott Brick’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    As I said previously, Mr. Brick is one of my favorite Narrators. Every performance is magnificent, and he truly "makes" any book.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    If time permitted, I would have loved to listen to this book in one sitting.

    "Preston & Child do it again"
    Would you listen to Dance of Death again? Why?

    YES! Every book in this series just keeps getting better. The Pendergast character is so complex and ever changing. Look forward to the next weird situation he will get involved with next.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Pendergast is one of my all-time favorite characters. These books would make a fantastic movie along the lines of Robert Downey Jr's Sherlock Holmes movies. Pendergast and his tailored suits with all the tools and gadgets he pulls out of various pockets and hidden places. He is so strange and peculiar and yet very loyal and caring.


    Which character – as performed by Scott Brick – was your favorite?

    Brick does them all so well. I thought he would have a hard time separating Pendergast from his brother, Diogenes, in this book - but I thought he handled it well.

    Live on edge of National Forest with lake, birds & wild animals. No more perfect place to indulge life-long love of reading.

    "Warning: This triology hooks you and won't let go"

    Note: This is book two in a triology. To achieve maximum enjoyment and effect it's quite important to read them in sequence.

    Key ingredients:

    * Lots of action -- interesting and fast moving, but missing the jaw clenching action of the first book. Still great, just pales a little in comparison.

    * All the essential murder-mystery archetypes are present: A brilliant and highly ethical hero; A sidekick who is fiercely loyal and brave; A beautiful damsel in very dire circumstances; and finally, A nemesis truly worthy of the main character -- worthy in intellect and mettle -- and as evil as our hero is good.

    * And given that this is book 2 of a triology: a true, knuckle-biting, cliff-hanger ending.


    I'm thoroughly hooked. I must read installment 3 immediately.

    "Great book series"

    Pendergast is a Southern Gentleman's version of Sherlock Holmes. This book series has kept me on the edge of my seat. It's kept me guessing. I didn't think I would like the Pendergast character. My first impression was that he was a rich snob. He is, but not because he has money. He doesn't like to deal with stupidity. No matter what one's social status is, Pendergast respects intelligence. I recommend this series of books to anyone that enjoys Sherlock Holmes.

    "Actually humorous!"

    Another great story in this series....it had me questioning the sanity of Pendergast & D'Agosta. I can't say more without giving away the plot. This book had a LOT of humor in it. I found myself laughing out loud several times :D
