Publisher's Summary

Medicine Creek, Kansas. In a town where nothing changes, where Main Street is a two-block stretch of old and dusty businesses, a ghastly murder has taken place. The unknown victim has been placed in a small clearing in a sea of corn, mutilated and arranged in an elaborate tableau. Within twenty-four hours the sheriff is assuring a flood of reporters and tense residents that this is an isolated death - until Special Agent Pendergast arrives in the stifling August heat to declare it the work of a serial killer.

Soon neighbors begin to disappear - only to reappear as the lifeless centerpieces of unspeakable displays. Convulsed with terror, the townsfolk whisper of the legendary Curse of the Forty-fives. No one is safe from a killer who stalks his prey in the blackness of night...and whose grotesque crimes are revealed by circling buzzards under the cruel summer sun.

With the help of Corrie Swanson, an eighteen-year-old misfit, Pendergast unearths the secrets of this isolated town - from the dark histories of its inhabitants to the darker mysteries hidden in the endless cornfields. And ultimately, as he unravels the local curse and the truth of Medicine Creek's greatest enigma, the Ghost Warrior Massacre of 1865, Pendergast comes face-to-face with the unimaginable evil that lies at the heart of this small town.

    "Preston/Child deliver, again."

    This book is interesting, articulate, scary and touching. What more do you need in a book? I LOVE these characters. These guys can write! I highly recommend all of D. Preston and L. Child's books. Each is eerie in it's own unique way. A fun read, impossible to "put down" and I highly recommend!

    "Still Life with Crows - 'A Page Turner'"

    Excellent book. As soon as I finished 'The Cabinet of Curiosities' (I sat on my bed for an hour to finish listening) I started 'Still Life with Crows'...again I couldn't turn off my player. With their fantastic twisting turning narratives, Preston and Child take you through a maze of a story. I could almost feel the corn pollen in my nose and the heat of the sun on my back. A great read!!

    "Still Life an excellent work from Lincoln & Child"

    I have read/listened to every book that has been published by the dynamic duo of Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child. Only one has yet to even slightly disapoint me. This is not that book! The authors have created some very interesting characters in their books, one of my favorites being FBI Special Agent Pendergast. He is one of the most enigmatic characters I'm met so far. In this story, agent Pendergast travels to rural Kansas to investigate a grizzly murder. Turns out, the murderer is a possible serial killer. With the style used in their previous books, Preston and Child weave one heck of a story laden with the supernatural and possibly some natural history. I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good, edge of your seat thriller.

    "Still Life with Crows"

    MORE ! More Pendergast - an abosolutely wonderful character, growing with each book. I was not disappointed in the ongoing tales of FBI special agent Pendergast. I found Rene Auberjonois (who has narrated both books) to be a great story teller. Again a story that makes the reader think and not overlook any of even the slightest comments as being an integral part of the story. I CANT WAIT FOR THE NEXT ONE

    "Toxic waste"

    I rated this book 1 star only because there isn't anything lower.

    The story makes no sense. The writing ranges from dull and trite to gratuitously gruesome. The book raises some serious questions about the emotional health of the authors.
