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.

    "Awful narrator"

    Awesome book as expected but the narration and set up was awful. It took me so long to get through this book because of the disappointment from the narrator

    "Story is decent, narration is poor"

    The new narrorator has a very limited range. He does well with the voices of old Tibetan monks... but he makes everyone sound like an old Tibetan monk. I wish the old narrorator had performed this.

    "Much more Si-Fi than previous books, not as good.."

    Over the years, I have read all of the Pendergast books, when I recently downloaded the latest, The Obsidian Chamber, which is about Diogenes returning, I was sooo excited I decided to go back and re-read the entire Diogenes series. The Book of the Dead and Dance of Death did not disappoint, I felt like I was reading them for the first time! However, Wheel of Darkness was a serious let down. Much more Si-Fi than previous books, down right corny... Worse of all, there was very little mention of Diogenes. I guess I must have used it as background noise the first time, and had to force myself to pay attention this time. They dropped the ball on this one.

    Rene Aubogonis is the only thing good about this book. He IS Pendergast.

    I never thought I would return a Preston-Child book, but this one goes back.

    "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.

    "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.

    "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
