Publisher's Summary

After his wife, Helen, is brazenly abducted before his eyes, Special Agent Pendergast furiously pursues the kidnappers, chasing them across the country and into Mexico. But then, things go terribly, tragically wrong; the kidnappers escape; and a shattered Pendergast retreats to his New York apartment and shuts out the world.

But when a string of bizarre murders erupts across several Manhattan hotels - perpetrated by a boy who seems to have an almost psychic ability to elude capture - NYPD Lieutenant D'Agosta asks his friend Pendergast for help. Reluctant at first, Pendergast soon discovers that the killings are a message from his wife's kidnappers. But why a message? And what does it mean?

When the kidnappers strike again at those closest to Pendergast, the FBI agent, filled anew with vengeful fury, sets out to track down and destroy those responsible. His journey takes him deep into the trackless forests of South America, where he ultimately finds himself face to face with an old evil that - rather than having been eradicated - is stirring anew... and with potentially world-altering consequences.

Confucius once said: "Before you embark on a journey of revenge, first dig two graves." Pendergast is about to learn the hard way just how true those words still ring.

    "Best of the three"
    Where does Two Graves rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Very exciting book, never a dull moment. Rene Auberjonois is as always great. Was little upset with how book 2 ended but book 3 was well worth the wait. Many loose ends were tied up and one left dangling, probably the best loose end. Oh, yes, oh yes. I see another book in the offing. Would recommend this book.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes, it did. I true roller coaster ride...don't really want to reveal more then that, since I don't want to spoil the book for anyone. All I will say, I couldn't stop listening, it was so exciting.

    "Another great book of this series"

    I love Agent Pendergast but this time there is a twist that made it even more interesting and I can see a follow up story coming soon. Pendergast finally finds an adversary of his level...

    "Another creative Pendergast chapter!"

    The Pendergast saga continues. Some loose ends are wrapped up, other situations are expanded, and new characters are introduced. The Helen, Constance, and Corey strands are developed, Aloysius nearly commits suicide, poor Proctor (sp?) is thrashed more than once, and D’Agosta makes a contribution. New characters are introduced and, I hope, will turn up in future episodes.
    This is another fun contribution from the Preston-Child duo.
    Rene Auberjonois gives another impeccable performance.

    I am an avid recorded book listener. I work at at elementary school, have 2 high schoolers and have very little time to sit and read. This is a great book fix for the perpetual motion in our lives we live these days.

    "A CHANGE IN NARRATORS - NOW!!??"

    Loved the story, love the narrator and love the authors. What were they thinking when changing narrators in a series. I felt I was reading about all new characters. Not as enjoyable as I was straining to reconnect to history.

    Story
    "Even Pendergast is puzzled for awhile"
    What did you love best about Two Graves?

    What can I say they keep up a level of interesting stories that are just about unbeatable
    Alot of twist and turns


    What did you like best about this story?

    Not every hero is a warrior, some just come into by sheer chance, but what a great story


    What about Rene Auberjonois’s performance did you like?

    Our hats are off to Mr Auberjonois, he is without adoubt the best Pendergast reader there is, also his other works are so varied that you have to keep listening


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

    The end at the library when the reflections take place


    Any additional comments?

    Please don't give up on Pendergast and write another one soon. Also we are waiting for another Gideon, But Pendergast is one everyone wants

    "Another Great One"
    Would you listen to Two Graves again? Why?

    Yes I would. It tied up most of the loose ends from Cold Vengeance. There were a couple of parts that dragged slightly, but nothing that took away from the story. Pendergast is one of the best characters in modern fiction as far as I am concerned. This is worth a read


    What does Rene Auberjonois bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He is the best Narrator I have heard. He has a great talent for accents.

    Story
    "Another gripping tale."

    I’ve hesitated to write a review for Two Graves, since there have been so many great reviews already written. But…. I must!

    I was really beginning to worry about our hero, Pendergast. He was self-imploding and cutting the ties to all his friends! I had begun to think that maybe P&C were tired of him, and going to end the series.

    Thank goodness, I was wrong (at least, I hope!).. but, I did have some moments where I was very disappointed in the hero. But then, he is human, right? Allowed to make mistakes .. get depressed.. go through despair? This story illustrates how important friends are to our lives.

    I was sad at some of the occurrences (trying not to give spoilers).. I was really hoping for a different ending. But, P&C once again surprise and intrigue me with some of their twists.

    Toward the end, our hero re-acquires his larger than life hero status and pulls off some highly Bond-like stunts. But then, this is fiction and I’m a sucker for a great ending!

    I was surprised at some of the topics that were glossed over.. but, maybe they are being saved to be addressed in future stories.

    Mr. Auberjonois does a wonderful job narrating again!!

    Yes, I do recommend this book.. just don’t listen before you listen to Fever Dream and Cold Vengeance (in that order). This is a terrific trilogy!

    "Pendergast Revealed"
    What made the experience of listening to Two Graves the most enjoyable?

    learning the backgrounds of the characters


    What did you like best about this story?

    how all the characters stories were brought together and expounded upon.


    What about Rene Auberjonois’s performance did you like?

    his cadence and how he is able to give each character the certain something special that whether they are good or evil I can understand them.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I felt sad for Agent Pendergast
