Agent Pendergast has got to be one of the best characters out there.

What I love about these books on Pendergast is that they're stand alones. You do not have to read them in order (even though I have) but for someone that hasn't read any one book from this series will have no problem in picking up whichever book and start to read it..but be warned..you will end up reading all them. You can't help it.

I am a Pendergast fanatic, so I will read a childrens novel if he is in it. But I must admit this noval did not have the best story line. I will keep it in my library of course because he is in it, but I will need a follow up quick. I would like to see the writers make Viola more prominent in the Pendergast series. No, I don't like romantic mush, but Pendergast deserves to be happy and in love, so it would be nice to make her presence known occasionally. As for Constance, she is getting on my nerves.

    My Least Favorite Pendergast book :-(

    While I adore any and all books related to Pendergast, I have to say this one is my least favorite. The whole plot/characters/everything just felt "off". I suppose it would have been nearly impossible for the authors to follow up with a novel as fantastic as the Diogenes Trilogy... Still a must read for any Pendergast fan.

    just ok

    I am a huge fan of all the Pendergast novels. This one however was the least enjoyable. I am looking foreward to the next one with hopes of a better story line.

    I Also Recommend:

    Not up to their usual quality

    Being a fan of Pendergast through all the previous adventures, I was looking forward to the next installment. But this was a let-down after the recent trilogy, and I found the situations forced and the setting claustrophobic. Hoping for improvements in their next offering.

    I tend to like the Pendergast novels set in NY better, this was not. But the story , particularly the setting on an ocean liner, was still ok , if not as good as others in the series.

    This book definately wasn't what I was expecting. I didn't feel any of that suspenseful drama like the other Pendergast novels. I felt like it lacked something in the story line and it wasn't very exciting. But anyways, I still think if you've read the other novels you should give this one a try.

    A disappointment

    Have all the other books by these boys, and they were great. This one, not up to the rest. Need to get back to museums and the New York underground....that's where they really shine.
