    "Great trilogy"
    What did you love best about Dance of Death?

    The Diogenes trilogy is probably the best arc of the Pendergast series. The end of Brimstone left us wondering what happened, and this book was able to explain the story while keeping up the suspense. If it was a hard copy book, I wouldn't have been able to put it down.


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

    The whole trilogy did. Nonstop suspense and action from the beginning of Brimstone to the end of Book of the Dead.


    What about Scott Brick’s performance did you like?

    I got so sick of Rene Auberjonois' narrating, it was such a nice change to have someone new. Brick was able to perform throughout the book, instead of Auberjonois who basically sounded like he was reciting words.

    "Scott Brick does it again."

    Great characters and good story. But Scott Brick is the real star. His narration is second to none.

    Story
    "THERES SOMETHING ABOUT PENDERGAST..."
    What made the experience of listening to Dance of Death the most enjoyable?

    The narration, by Scott Brick, is the key to this series, along with Pendergast himself, of course. Mr. Brick does a superb job with the voice of the Pendergast brothers, especially. He also makes the new Evonovich series come to life, and adds that special something to all of his work!


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

    This book is one of the best in the series, in my opinion. It is fast paced, with twist and turns in every direction.


    Have you listened to any of Scott Brick’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    As I said previously, Mr. Brick is one of my favorite Narrators. Every performance is magnificent, and he truly "makes" any book.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    If time permitted, I would have loved to listen to this book in one sitting.

    Story
    "Preston & Child do it again"
    Would you listen to Dance of Death again? Why?

    YES! Every book in this series just keeps getting better. The Pendergast character is so complex and ever changing. Look forward to the next weird situation he will get involved with next.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Pendergast is one of my all-time favorite characters. These books would make a fantastic movie along the lines of Robert Downey Jr's Sherlock Holmes movies. Pendergast and his tailored suits with all the tools and gadgets he pulls out of various pockets and hidden places. He is so strange and peculiar and yet very loyal and caring.


    Which character – as performed by Scott Brick – was your favorite?

    Brick does them all so well. I thought he would have a hard time separating Pendergast from his brother, Diogenes, in this book - but I thought he handled it well.

    Live on edge of National Forest with lake, birds & wild animals. No more perfect place to indulge life-long love of reading.

    Story
    "Warning: This triology hooks you and won't let go"

    Note: This is book two in a triology. To achieve maximum enjoyment and effect it's quite important to read them in sequence.

    Key ingredients:

    * Lots of action -- interesting and fast moving, but missing the jaw clenching action of the first book. Still great, just pales a little in comparison.

    * All the essential murder-mystery archetypes are present: A brilliant and highly ethical hero; A sidekick who is fiercely loyal and brave; A beautiful damsel in very dire circumstances; and finally, A nemesis truly worthy of the main character -- worthy in intellect and mettle -- and as evil as our hero is good.

    * And given that this is book 2 of a triology: a true, knuckle-biting, cliff-hanger ending.


    I'm thoroughly hooked. I must read installment 3 immediately.

    "Great series, everything was top notch"

    Best of the Pendergast series this far. I really enjoyed this one. Great characters and such a rich story. I'm continually impressed with the level of detail the authors go into. The narrator is top-notch and nails each character.

    "A good center of the conflict"

    This story was quality Pendergast. I really enjoyed the struggle, and finally seeing our hero unwind. Yhe only issues i had were trying to discern Pendergast from his brother since the accent was the same, and that there was a key plotline in the story that ended up going nowhere. Overall it's still a fine book
