    "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.

    "Disappointed FAN"

    Having read all of their previous books, I anxiously awaited this title. "Wheel of Darkness" is easily the worst of their books. Usually their over-the-top premise has a thread of credibility, but I just couldn't buy into this one. I never liked the little pieces of Tibetan meditation in the previous books, and this book if full of it. The only redeeming quality is that the authors still provide many of those laughingly obnoxious characters that undoubtedly meet an untimely end. Still, its not enough... skip this one. :-(

    "too bland"

    This book was not at the intrigue and visionary level of previous Pendergast stories. Too far fetched and little character development. Didn't really care what happened by the end.

    "My favorite of the last few Pendergast novels!"

    I just could not stop listening to this book and it went by too quickly! I am so sad it is over and cannot wait until their next book! A thriller that keeps you in suspense!

    "WHEEL OF DARKNESS"

    This book is so bad that I hesitate to give it even 0ne star,Reminds me of Steven King at his worst.The style is of adventure and horror novels of the 20's and 30's and really awful pulp magazines.Hard to believe two literate people could write such trash.
