A good ride

This book is getting some pretty bad reviews and I don't know why. These two authors write fast paced, well researched action novels. And they do it pretty well time and time again. The novel is not perfect but the character, Crew, is engaging and a joy to follow. ...
This book is getting some pretty bad reviews and I don't know why. These two authors write fast paced, well researched action novels. And they do it pretty well time and time again. The novel is not perfect but the character, Crew, is engaging and a joy to follow. You can tell the love that the authors have for both Holmes and Bond and they show such joy in writing these adventures. These two are still some of my fav story tellers in the genre. More of Pendergast, and yes! More Gideon Crew please.

Disappointing

While Gideon grows as a character the plot line and general premise was a bit unbelievable coupled with unlikely resolutions to some of the obstacles presented to Gideon. A bit of a disappointing sequel

    Stop hating on this book!

    This book is actually really good... this desperately NEEDS a movie. This has gotten a raving review on the New York Times... hint hint!

    Anyway, for those of you who are thinking of buying the book and looking at BOTH editorial and customer reviews, do it. It's really worth the damn money. It has a lot of strong language, so I really only don't reccomend it to those who are sensitive about that kind of stuff.

    But still,

    Fun read

    As a long time fan of Preston/Child, I was hesitant to start this series based in the reviews. But Gideon Crew is growing in me and I thoroughly enjoyed the progression of his character in this installment. The story was paced well and good piece of escapism.

    highly recommend

    Looks as though I am in the minority, but I couldn't put the book down! Really feel it would make a great movie and enjoyed it very much. Preston and Child wrote a great book. Give it a try, you might just like it!!
