Summary:

"A consistently exciting and never predictable series."-Associated PressWhen Grace Ozmian, the beautiful and reckless daughter of a wealthy tech billionaire, first goes missing, the NYPD assumes she has simply sped off on another wild adventure. Until the young woman's body is discovered in an abandoned warehouse in Queens, the head nowhere to be found. Lieutenant CDS Vincent D'Agosta quickly takes the lead. He knows his investigation will attract fierce scrutiny, so D'Agosta is delighted when FBI Special Agent A.X.L. Pendergast shows up at the crime scene assigned to the case. "I feel rather like Brer Rabbit being thrown into the briar patch," Pendergast tells D'Agosta, "because I have found you here, in charge. Just like when we first met, back at the Museum of Natural History."But neither Pendergast nor D'Agosta are prepared for what lies ahead. A diabolical presence is haunting the greater metropolitan area, and Grace Ozmian was only the first of many victims to be murdered . . . and decapitated. Worse still, there's something unique to the city itself that has attracted the evil eye of the killer.As mass hysteria sets in, Pendergast and D'Agosta find themselves in the crosshairs of an opponent who has threatened the very lifeblood of the city. It'll take all of Pendergast's skill to unmask this most dangerous foe-let alone survive to tell the tale.

    Not the usual AXL Pendergast tale. I was disappointed with this. Pendergast didn’t sound like himself, he didn’t act like himself, he was off his game. Then I realized this was intentional. Pendergast is experiencing an inner struggle, his mind is elsewhere. Not wanting to inflect spoilers, I will just say, this Pendergast is not the cool and collected agent I personally prefer. The story was also a bit far fetched, insulted my intelligence so to speak. I hope the next book gets back on track.

    This was my first Preston & Child's book. I truly enjoyed the story and how it developed. The plot twisted in a direction I was not expecting; therefore surprising me and making my experience a delight. I'm intrigued and will be looking for more titles by the duo. The narrator, Rene Auberjonois, was good. In the beginning, his style did not connect me to the book. But as the story progressed, he became comfortable with the characters, making them relatable and the book enjoyable.

    Lincoln and child never fail to impress. Fast moving and good twists. Interesting to see Penderghast continue to evolve. Nice stand skinned book. Waiting for next book. Hope it's a new trilogy. And Rene Auberginous is great as always!!!
