    I gave this review two stars because I liked the narrator. However, I found this story silly and tiresome, especially the last two discs. I've always enjoyed the Pendergast stories, but this one was just too bizarre.

  • Heather Payne

    I felt the story was hokey and a bit slow in the beginning. Agent Pendergast was lacking in his savvy and clever ways that I enjoy most. Pendergast's spiritual journey by meditating with Constantine ruined it for me. I did enjoy that the mystery was on a cruise ship and the narrator was very good.

    The Wheel of Darkness was a thrilling ride! I would sit in the driveway and listen to it for 20 minutes when I came home. I thought the concept was inventive.

    The Pendergast series are among my favorite detective series. I loved the book and especially the narrator, Rene Auberjonois has a great voice and does both female and male voices as well as accents extremely well. However this was the abridged version and I felt some of the complexity of the characters was lost. I will definitely look for the unabridged book. I really hope there will be a sequel to the book, even so the ending seemed to indicate differently.
