Past and present collide in Preston and Child's most thrilling novel ever . . .


Special Agent Pendergast arrives at an exclusive Colorado ski resort to rescue his protégée, Corrie Swanson, from serious trouble with the law. His sudden appearance coincides with the first attack of a murderous arsonist who--with brutal precision--begins burning down multimillion-dollar mansions with the families locked inside. After springing Corrie from jail, Pendergast learns she made a discovery while examining the bones of several miners who were killed 150 years earlier by a rogue grizzly bear. Her finding is so astonishing that it, even more than the arsonist, threatens the resort's very existence.

Drawn deeper into the investigation, Pendergast uncovers a mysterious connection between the dead miners and a fabled, long-lost Sherlock Holmes story--one that might just offer the key to the modern day killings as well.

Now, with the ski resort snowed in and under savage attack--and Corrie's life suddenly in grave danger--Pendergast must solve the enigma of the past before the town of the present goes up in flames.

Publishers Weekly Review

Sep 02, 2013 – Sherlock Holmes fans will relish Preston and Child’s 13th novel featuring eccentric FBI agent Aloysius Pendergast (after 2012’s Two Graves), one of their best in this popular series. In the prologue, set in 1889 at a London restaurant, Oscar Wilde not only advises Conan Doyle on how to improve the character of Holmes, who so far has appeared only in A Study in Scarlet, but also tells a horrible tale about a mining camp that the aesthete visited during his American tour a few years before. The details of Wilde’s story gradually come out in the main, present-day narrative, in which Pendergast’s protégé, Corrie Swanson, a student at Manhattan’s John Jay College of Criminal Justice, is undertaking “a large-scale study of perimortem trauma on human bones inflicted by a large carnivore.” Her starting point will be Roaring Fork, Colo., where a bear killed and ate 11 miners in 1876. Corrie’s arrival in Roaring Fork coincides with a serious of grisly murders that Pendergast later comes to believe are related to the 19th-century bear attacks. Lee Child, Clive Cussler, Anne Rice, and Peter Straub have all supplied blurbs for this installment, which easily stands on its own with only passing references to Pendergast’s complex backstory.

Customer Reviews


Read every single book they have written together and individually, love each one and purchased each one paperback, pendergast series is definately my favorite.

Amazing Continuation of the Pendergast Series!

I cannot tell you how much I loved this book! Chapter 11 was my favorite chapter only because it was SO chilling!

One of the things I love about Preston and Child is how seamlessly they write together. I've read individual books by each, and while I enjoy them, the way their writing styles blend so effortlessly is astounding!

This is a must-read and a great continuation of the Special Agent Pendergast series. I'm bummed I have to wait until next year for another!

Not their best

Of all of the Pendergast books, this was the least intriguing. The book was entertaining enough, but seemed to be lacking somehow. Possibly because certain events and details of the book never played out, despite seeming important. It feels as though the authors may have rushed to get this book out and just didn't follow through with their usual attention to detail. Hopefully their next Pendergast novel is more in line with previous books.
