Brotherly love

Absolutely awesome. Agent Pendergast goes toe to toe with his twisted brother Diogenes. Pendergast returns from the dead only to be confronted by Diogenes with a challenge., "Stop me if you can". Diogenes starts to kill off Pendergast's friends and sets him up to take the blame. With the ever faithful Lt. D'agosta helping him, Pendergast must stop his brother before he commits the perfect crime. But can he save his friends and himself? This may be Pendergast's greatest challenge.

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

Awsome book

Kind of a slow start but once it kicked in I couldn't stop listening. I had alot planned for Saturday but I blew it all off because I couldn't put this book down. I've already downloaded the next in series. Don't miss this one.

Love this book

I have been a fan of Agent Aloysius Pendergast since I read my first book with him in 2007. I have a tendency to reread books but now that I work on the road and spend most of my days driving, I don't have time to read an actual book.
This book was narrated phenomenally well. Scott Brick does a wonderful job creating those little differences when voicing the characters that really sell the story.

Beyond belief again

Would you consider the audio edition of Dance of Death to be better than the print version?

I love this series because you have to transport yourself into a comic book world. This is like Dick tracy or Superhero mentality. Evil vs. good. I enjoyed this installment and look forward to next one and hope they don't kill off another major character

What did you like best about this story?

the twists and turns and references to art and literature

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

His flair for doing accents

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Evil vs Good

Any additional comments?

I love pendergast character

Getting better every book

I read the original three Pendergast series books in paperback and have been listening to the remaining books on audible. Preston and Child did a great job improving the depth of Pendergast. As a New Orleans native, I find the references to New Orleans sprinkled throughout the series to be great.

Only downside to this book and a few others in the series is the choice of voice actor. All do great as narrators, but the voices used for some characters don't match what's created by the authors. Overall, highly recommend this book and all be others in the Pendergast series.
