Cold Vengeance

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Lincoln Child, Douglas Preston

Narrated By: Rene Auberjonois

Publisher: Hachette Book Group USA

Date: August 2011

Duration: 12 hours 2 minutes


Devastated by the discovery that his wife, Helen, was murdered, Special Agent Pendergast must have retribution. But revenge is not simple. As he stalks his wife's betrayers--a chase that takes him from the wild moors of Scotland to the bustling streets of New York City and the darkest bayous of Louisiana--he is also forced to dig further into Helen's past. And he is stunned to learn that Helen may have been a collaborator in her own murder.

Peeling back the layers of deception, Pendergast realizes that the conspiracy is deeper, goes back generations, and is more monstrous than he could have ever imagined--and everything he's believed, everything he's trusted, everything he's understood . . . may be a horrific lie.

    I struggled with who was who because of all the crazy names. Agent Pendergast was a bit laid back lacking wit and slick moves while looking for his thought to be dead wife. I still enjoyed it as I am going through the series. I would love more scare factor. Dark eerie Manor kind of mystery! Fantastic narrative.

    I did not like this book as much as the others in the Pendergast series. I would have given the book only two stars, except that the reader Rene Auberjonois was outstanding. Pendergast has lost his edge in his manic quest to find his wife and makes some serious mistakes. Is he distracted or past his prime? Also the Nazi conspiracy seems far-fetched and not very original. All Germans are cold-blooded bastard Nazis. As a native German speaker I noticed that the German was pronounced wrong. The worst though is that it ended with a cliff hanger. I don't like books with open endings. Overall, bring back the old Pendergast or I will be done with the series.

    Too convoluted and Pendergast is too amazing. He i s an FBI agent but he does what he wants. He should be a Marvel super hero. Slogged my through it.
