Publisher's Summary

Hidden deep beneath Manhattan lies a warren of tunnels, sewers, and galleries, mostly forgotten by those who walk the streets above. There lies the ultimate secret of the Museum Beast.

When two grotesquely deformed skeletons are found deep in the mud off the Manhattan shoreline, museum curator Margo Green is called in to aid the investigation. Margo must once again team up with police lieutenant D'Agosta and FBI agent Pendergast, as well as the brilliant Dr. Frock, to try and solve the puzzle. The trail soon leads deep underground, where they will face the awakening of a slumbering nightmare.

Prolong the suspense: listen to the first book, Relic.

What the Critics Say

The netherworld of New York City...proves as shuddery a setting for the authors' latest scientific monster mash as the American Museum of Natural History did for their bestselling Relic, to which this is the sequel. (Publishers Weekly)
"This should do for the New York subway system what Jaws did for Long Island beaches." (Booklist)
"Dick Hill's reading of this fascinating sequel to Relic builds the suspense and horror." (AudioFile)

    "I love everything Aloysius Pendergrass!!!"

    Aloysius Pendergast as an FBI agent that is over the top and an incredibly awesome literary character. I have read all the books multiple times and now I am enjoying listening to them.

    "Excellent!"

    20 yrs later & this book is still a top-notch thriller. Narrator did a pretty great job with the subtle dramatics & effects, although it's always such a cliche when male readers feel the need to voice every female character as soft, breathless, & timid.

    Story
    "A discovery of an old favorite."

    I originally started this series when I was in Jr high . After watching Relic on Netflix I decided to find the series that I once so enjoyed. This second book brings back characters that are familiar and enjoyable. The flow of the story at times was slow but that may have been since I knew the ending before starting. I easily though slid into my own imaginings of this book while listening Dick Hill narrate. The descriptions gave me enough details to begin the image and allowed my imagination to complete it. Do you know what lies under the city streets? You may be surprised! If you have not read the first book please read Relic.

    Story
    "Couldn't get past the bad narration"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I recommend the book, but if they've listened to any of the other audio books the narration for this one is really lacking.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    It's a Pendergast novel for a reason.


    What didn’t you like about Dick Hill’s performance?

    When listening to Rene Aberjonois you hear individual characters, when listening to Dick you hear one person speaking for all the characters.

    "Pendergast never disappoints!"

    I live everything about this book except the narrator, I've come to love Renee A. Who reads the later books, and is phenomenal. So it's hard for me to listen to the other narrator. However it's an excellent book.

    "Wordy but good story."

    The first two Pendergast novels show Preston and Child finding his voice. This book gives us a better look at our favorite FBI agent and whets our appetite for more about who he is. We need Relic and Reliquary to set the stage for the rest of the series.

    Story
    "Here there be monsters."

    The second novel in the expansive Pendergast series is the same level of techno-thriller as it's predecessor. The returning cast are all excellently evolved(science joke as well as literary) and the reader does a brilliant performance recreating their imagined personalities. If you crave mystery, intrigue, and a splattering of real world personality and possibility then look no further. Prequel required reading.

    "Superb follow up"

    You must read the relic first to really get this book, but this book too has a brilliant plot and characters. Unusual mix of sci fi, adventure and murder. This book is true escapism, brilliantly read and superbly written. Hours of true escapism at its best.

    "Great sequel"

    Like James Cameron's Aliens, this takes the lone monster hide and seek story of the original, and turns it up to a full on war.

    "Relics"

    If the first book was "'Alien' in a Museum" then this is "'Aliens' in the sewers"!
    A fine followup to Relic, expanding and explaining the beast and what makes it.
    Entertaining and fun.
