Notes From Your Bookseller

Still thinking about the cliffhanger ending in The Cabinet of Dr. Leng? The wait is over, and the final volume in the Pendergast series is here. This thriller has it all: an unforgettable villain, a mysterious hero, a propulsive narrative — and a time travel twist.

Preston & Child continue their #1 bestselling series featuring FBI Special Agent Pendergast and Constance Greene, as they take a final stand against New York's deadliest serial killer: Pendergast's own ancestor...and Constance's greatest enemy.

A desperate bargain is broken...

Constance Greene confronts Manhattan's most dangerous serial killer, Enoch Leng, bartering for her sister's life - but she is betrayed and turned away empty-handed, incandescent with rage.

A clever trap is set...

Unknown to Leng, Pendergast's brother, Diogenes, appears unexpectedly, offering to help-for mysterious reasons of his own. Disguised as a cleric, Diogenes establishes himself in New York's notorious Five Points slum, manipulating events like a chess master, watching Leng's every move...and awaiting his own chance to strike.

A vengeful angel will not be deterred...

Meanwhile, as Pendergast focuses on saving the unstable Constance in her fanatical quest for vengeance, she strikes out on her own: to rescue her beloved siblings from a tragic fate and take savage retribution on Leng. But Leng is one step ahead and has a surprise for them all...

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

06/17/2024

The tedious 22nd installment of Preston and Child’s series featuring paranormal FBI investigator Aloysius Pendergast (after The Cabinet of Dr. Leng) gets tangled in convoluted series lore. Pendergast has used a dimensional portal to follow his ward, Constance Greene, to an alternate version of 1880 New York City, where they hope to protect Constance’s siblings from sadistic doctor Enoch Leng, who is prepared to kill them in his pursuit of Constance’s life-extending formula. Pendergast’s evil twin brother, Diogenes, has followed the pair through the portal and begun cozying up to Leng—though he claims to Constance and his brother that it’s all part of a master plan to bring down the doctor. Complicating matters, in the present, Leng is one of Pendergast’s distant ancestors, which means that killing the doctor could also wipe out Pendergast and his brother. Preston and Child pepper the action with contrivances and tension-draining dei ex machina, all in service of a story that has long since jumped the shark. Clanging dialogue (“Consider it a raspberry pip under the dentures of the space-time continuum”) doesn’t help. Pendergast and his cohorts have seen better days. Agent: Eric Simonoff, WME. (Aug.)

From the Publisher

PRAISE FOR THE CABINET OF DR. LENG:

“This book is a lot of fun. The writing is crisp and lightly ornate, as usual, and the story is inventive and suspenseful."—Booklist

PRAISE FOR BLOODLESS:

"Leave it to the imaginations of Preston and Child . . . Spooky and surreal [and] wonderful fun."

Kirkus

Bloodless is rife with inventive scenarios, amusing exchanges (especially between oft-impatient Coldmoon and eternally placid Pendergast) and tantalizingly spooky mysteries, topped off with a gloriously wild finale that is as action-packed as it is memorable.”—BookPage (Starred Review)

PRAISE FOR CROOKED RIVER:

"Preston and Child know how to craft compelling stories that are both baffling and surprising. The cast of characters feels authentic and moves the story forward in unexpected ways. . . the authors are masters of the procedural with a gothic flair."—Associated Press

PRAISE FOR ANGEL OF VENGEANCE:

“You will rarely see two characters as complex and compelling as these two, and you will rarely see a series as consistently well written as this one.”—Booklist (Starred Review)
