    "The Wheel of Darkness"

    This is a very suspense filled book with a little of the occult. Very entertaining although somewhat predictable. I recommend it.

    "Satisfying on all levels"

    The combination of Preston and Child's writing combined with the amazing narration by Rene Auberjonois makes this series one of the best in my library. It is a rare and satisfying audiobook experience.

    "The Wheel of Darkness"

    Total waste of time and money. Could not even get through the first volume. Went back and tried again but it was not at all interesting.

    "Their best one yet"

    Agent Pendergast is put into an impossible position by his enemy. Lots of fun to see how this one works out. I have greatly enjoyed these books, but this is the best one to date.

    "Just Bad"

    I'm a huge fan - I've read/heard all of their works and loved most of them - but this one stands out as a real stinker. It takes all of the suspense and drama of the pendergast series and runs it aground on sharp rocks. By the end you dont care about Pendergast or any of the other characters. Avoid this one and lets hope they try harder on the next one.

    "Great new narrator still love there works"

    It is a great change of pace with a different narrator. But I love Rene voice always have. I listen to several books a week. This book is a great listen too. Highly recommended!!!!. The Tibitan is part of the story that make this incrediable and workable. It gives it it's edge.

    "Disappointing"

    Unlike the other Pendergast novels this one is very disappointing. I actually found myself asking "what is the point" to some actions/situations. It was interesting to see his ward, Constance, develop, but this output of Preston/Child is not, in my opinion, a must read.

    "where is scott brick?"

    The story is great, but Scott Brick did so much better reading the last 2 books. This one feels like it isn't a part fo the same story.
