Special Agent Aloysius Pendergast is faced with one of his most daunting challenges. Discovering the perpetrators of a murder close to his heart taxes even his stoic control. A mystery that crosses continents and wallows in swamps.
Preston and Child can be expected to write a riveting and thought provoking mystery. They certainly continue that trend in this book. Pendergast’s ability to convert even the harshest critic of his investigative style illustrates his characters strength. I felt Lt. Vincent D’Agosta’s character could have had a little more depth. He was a stalwart side kick but didn’t seem as full fleshed as he might have been. The mysterious murder and the ensuing investigation certainly keeps you interested.
Pendergast’s brand of eye for an eye justice seemed appropriate in several situations in the book. Overall the team of Preston and Child has succeeded again.
I recommend the book.
