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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

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.
Though I enjoyed most of this very much, I rated it Narration 4.5 + plot 3.5, total 4.0. I've seen reviews of other books that down graded if the story was considered "lacking credibility." For those who have read the other Penderghast novels, you know there's a degree of mysticism in all of them, but I found it intrusive in this one because it was used to resolve the major conflict in a way that involved the mystical changing of the nature of a major element. That just went too far into the religious for my taste. I was looking forward to this one very much, but if further episodes continue in the same vein, it may be more accurate to put them in the "fantasy" or "science fiction" categories, rather than "mystery."
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. :-(
