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.

About the Author

The thrillers of Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child stand head and shoulders above their rivals (Publishers Weekly). Preston and Child's Relic and The Cabinet of Curiosities were chosen by readers in a National Public Radio poll as being among the one hundred greatest thrillers ever written, and Relic was made into a number-one box office hit movie. They are coauthors of the famed Pendergast series and their recent novels include Fever Dream, Cold Vengeance, Two Graves, and Gideon's Corpse. In addition to his novels, Preston writes about archaeology for the New Yorker and Smithsonian magazines. Lincoln Child is a former book editor who has published five novels of his own, including the huge bestseller Deep Storm. Readers can sign up for The Pendergast File, a monthly strangely entertaining note from the authors, at their website, www.PrestonChild.com. The authors welcome visitors to their alarmingly active Facebook page, where they post regularly.
Lincoln Child has collected and edited numerous ghost and horror story anthologies, including Dark Company and Dark Banquet. Formerly a trade editor with St. Martin's Press in New York City, he now lives in Morristown, New Jersey.
