Publisher's Summary

FBI Agent Pendergast has taken Constance on a whirlwind Grand Tour, hoping to give her closure and a sense of the world that she's missed. They head to Tibet, where Pendergast intensively trained in martial arts and spiritual studies. At a remote monastery, they learn that a rare and dangerous artifact the monks have been guarding for generations has been mysteriously stolen. Pendergast agrees to take up the search.

The trail leads him and Constance to the maiden voyage of the Queen Victoria, the world's largest and most luxurious passenger liner - and to an Atlantic crossing fraught with terror.

Investigate more of Agent Pendergast's cases.

    "awesome book, horrible narrator"

    this book is one of the best Pendergast stories yet.... But the narrator, especially compared to the previous narrator in the previous Pendergast books, is horrible.... He did not even give him a Southern accent

    "Great one !"

    The hardcover book I read first. Next I bought the Pendergast trilogy on Nook. Then, I needed the audiobooks. Rene Auberjenois is the best Pendergast.

    Story
    "This story pretty out there."

    Like Scott Brick's narrating better. He does a good accent for Pendergast, where this one did not.
    Story was pretty far-fetched, although several in the series have been, but just had a hard time getting into it and relating to this one. Not my favorite

    "Bring back Scott Brick"

    Not as good as the previous three. Interesting enough though.

    I don't care for the narrator. It's hard to follow Scott Brick.

    I was annoyed by how the book addressed the female captain. Very competent but they gave her a crappy role.

    Story
    "Love the authors, hate the reader."
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Not really. The new reader ruined the experience


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Rene Auberjonois?

    Scott Brick. The narrator of earlier books in this series. I see the condescending face of the guy from Benson every time he talks.


    Could you see The Wheel of Darkness being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Do not know

    Story
    "Not Scott Brick! Good murder mystery story"
    Did Rene Auberjonois do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Renee did a decent job but i got used to Scott Brick's voice for Pendergast. Renee doesn't have as deep an Louisiana privileged drawl. By the end of the story it was credible. If you hadn't heard Scott Brick as Pendergast you would think it was good.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    It would give away an important part but i thought the character of Staff Captain Mason was very well done as was Captain Cutter.


    Any additional comments?

    The first half of the story brought me in because i thought it was a great murder mystery with a great setting. Things got weird after that which is typical for a Pendergast story.

    "Story was OK. Like Scott Brick better as a narrator"

    Story was OK. Narration was flat. What happen to that honey like southern accent. Pendergast ain't the same without it. Will still listen to the books. I like 90 percent of them.
