Description

After his wife, Helen, is brazenly abducted before his eyes, Special Agent Pendergast furiously pursues the kidnappers, chasing them across the country and into Mexico. But then, things go terribly, tragically wrong; the kidnappers escape; and a shattered Pendergast retreats to his New York apartment and shuts out the world.

But when a string of bizarre murders erupts across several Manhattan hotels-perpetrated by a boy who seems to have an almost psychic ability to elude capture-NYPD Lieutenant D'Agosta asks his friend Pendergast for help. Reluctant at first, Pendergast soon discovers that the killings are a message from his wife's kidnappers. But why a message? And what does it mean?

When the kidnappers strike again at those closest to Pendergast, the FBI agent, filled anew with vengeful fury, sets out to track down and destroy those responsible. His journey takes him deep into the trackless forests of South America, where he ultimately finds himself face to face with an old evil that-rather than having been eradicated-is stirring anew... and with potentially world-altering consequences.

Confucius once said: "Before you embark on a journey of revenge, first dig two graves." Pendergast is about to learn the hard way just how true those words still ring.

From Publishers Weekly

Sep 24, 2012 – Preston and Child’s high-adrenaline 12th thriller featuring maverick FBI agent Aloysius Pendergast wraps up the trilogy that began with 2010’s Fever Dream and continued with 2011’s Cold Vengeance with a bang. Just as Pendergast is reunited one evening in Manhattan’s Central Park with his beloved wife, Helen, who he thought died 12 years earlier, Helen falls victim to a gang of well-organized kidnappers. Despite Pendergast’s impressive combination of brains and brawn as well as network of helpers, his efforts to rescue Helen don’t play out as he anticipated. Meanwhile, a serial murderer dubbed the Hotel Killer has been targeting guests of Manhattan hotels, mutilating his victims and leaving behind a piece of his own body (e.g., a finger, an ear lobe) to taunt the NYPD. Given the growing cast of characters and their complex backstories, those already familiar with the bestselling authors’ fictional world will most enjoy this intelligent suspense novel.

Entertaining, but an unrealistic.

Good book, but THIRD in trilogy

The book itself is well written and has an interesting plot, but I always had a feeling like there was a backstory I wasn't privy to. Then, when I had finished and read a note from the authors - the answer was revealed to me. This was the THIRD story in a trilogy. As opposed to warning the consumer ahead of time, and possibly getting three sales - now, I've just finished a book feeling less-than-satisfied.

No knock on the authors here - I'd give the book 4.5 stars if I'd had the backstory from the previous two books. But I certainly can't go back and read them now that I know how the trilogy concludes! Whoever describes/composes the descriptions in the iBook store should have added the fact that this was a trilogy to the description.

Anyways, just wanted to save someone else the trouble - go back and buy the first two books before reading this one. I wish there had been some kind of warning for me.

Sincerely,

A somewhat frustrated consumer

Pendergast is back

This is a book I recommend to all Pendergast fans, it has all kinds of twists and turns and is the authors best writing in a while.
