Description

FBI Special Agent Pendergast must confront a strange, otherworldy circumstance-a new partnership-in this entry in Preston and Child's #1 bestselling series.

After an overhaul of leadership at the FBI's New York office, Special Agent A. X. L. Pendergast is forced to accept an unthinkable condition of continued employment-he must work with a partner.

Pendergast and his new teammate, FBI junior agent Coldmoon, are assigned the case of a devious new killer whose killing spree spans the countryside and whose crimes are distinguished by a mysterious MO: letters left at seemingly unrelated grave sites in the city of Miami.

That the connection between these old deaths defies easy explanation is the least of Pendergast's worries. As Aloysius digs deeper, he soon realizes there may be more to the killer-and Pendergast's new partner-than meets the eye.

Reviews

Readers unfamiliar with Pendergast will find this novel a fantastic launch point. He's a modern-day Sherlock Holmes, and the story reads like classic literature.

-- "Associated Press"

Pendergast is every bit the modern equivalent of Sherlock Holmes and Hercule Poirot. And his investigative skills have never been sharper than in the altogether brilliant Verses for the Dead...A throwback to classic crime fiction while maintaining a sharp, postmodern edge.

-- "Providence Journal"

Alligators, bullets, and a sinkhole contribute to a nerve-wracking finish. Readers will love the quirky characters in this clever yarn. Pendergast and Coldmoon make an excellent pair.

-- "Kirkus Reviews (starred review)"

Narrator Rene Auberjonois brings an acerbic delivery and deliberate pacing to his performance, encapsulating the tension between the two agents...Auberjonois, best known for his work on the Star Trek series Deep Space Nine, draws the listener into the engaging thriller with a knowing and friendly tone. Fans will revel in the back-and-forth between the partners and enjoy the shocking climax and take-down of the killer. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.
