Book 3 in the series. In an ancient tunnel underneath New York City a charnel house is discovered. Inside are 36 bodies all murdered and mutilated more than a century ago. While FBI agent Pendergast investigates the old crimes, identical killings start to terrorize the city. The nightmare has begun. Again.

I personally didn't see the villain coming but the whole story was erie, suspenseful , and sad. I hated that one of the side characters I really liked was killed.
Now as for the narrator, a more monotone, voice u couldn't have found. his intonation at certain plot points was off! I only finished the book because the story was that good.
I have jumped around this series bc I hate using a credit on bad books. There have only been a coupon from this series that I've not cared for but the 3 top Pendergast books make up for a couple ok ones. This one, ranks at probably 4th / 11 of the 14 I've read.
My top 3 :
1. feast with crows #1 all day
2. Brimstone - my 1st Pendergast I read and been hooked since
3. Blue Labyrinth
I've kind of picked up the Pendergast series in the middle and have bounced around - but have enjoyed each book. Just by chance I listened to Thunderhead (not in the Pendergast series) right before this one - and characters actually are tied together with this. Great listen.
I have listened to all the Pendergast books but couldn't finish this one. The narrator's voice grated on me to such an extent that I couldn't bear it any longer. I wish audible had there return policy in effect when I purchased this book.
Love their books.
Not in a million years. Rene A's narrations of the Pendergast books is superb and that makes this narrators work even harder to take.
Don't know. I haven't finished it. I usually don't see movies of books I've read or listened to as they never seem to live up to the mental images created while reading/listening.
I enjoy all of the Penergast books
His voices are really great but the narration in the first few chapters was jarring so much so that I thought about just reading the book instead of listening to it. He calms down midway through and I was able to get through the remainder of the audio book enjoyably.
Gripping! Another excellent special agent Pendergast story. Good narration, intricate plot, can't wait to listen to the next one in the series.
I've always enjoyed reading the Pendergast series even though I've read this particular book it was one of my Favorites I relived the story as I drove to and from work and compared sections to the original and found that the audio book actually helped answer some questions I had. Great listen.
THIS BOOK STARTED ME ON THE ENTIRE WANT TO READ THEM ALL.
WHEN U REALIZED THERE WAS TWO MURDERERS AND THE RELATIONSHIP WITH THE MUSEUM,
PORTRAYED TO THIS BOOK VERY WELL.
IN PROLOGUE WERE U KNEW SOMETHING IN HOUSE WAS MORE............
I ADORE THE PENDERGAST BOOKS.
I wanted to stop listening to this book a dozen times but my curiosity about Agent Pendergast won out and I made it to the end.
The story was a good one although somewhat belabored at times. The narration made it SO much worse. It felt like the narrator had but one level - dull. I love this series and hope this is the only one he narrates.
The first two are interesting and this is the first one that it seems the pieces are starting to come together that make a worthwhile series.
Loved the previous books but the narration of this book leaves a lot to be desired. Had I not wished to follow this series I would have given up within 5 minutes.
