In this #1 New York Times bestseller, Special Agent Pendergast must stop a serial killer who is terrorizing New York City with a trail of headless victims.

When Grace Ozmian, the beautiful and reckless daughter of a wealthy tech billionaire, first goes missing, the NYPD assumes she has simply sped off on another wild adventure. Until the young woman's body is discovered in an abandoned warehouse in Queens, the head nowhere to be found.

Lieutenant CDS Vincent D'Agosta quickly takes the lead. He knows his investigation will attract fierce scrutiny, so D'Agosta is delighted when FBI Special Agent A.X.L. Pendergast shows up at the crime scene assigned to the case. "I feel rather like Brer Rabbit being thrown into the briar patch," Pendergast tells D'Agosta, "because I have found you here, in charge. Just like when we first met, back at the Museum of Natural History."

But neither Pendergast nor D'Agosta are prepared for what lies ahead. A diabolical presence is haunting the greater metropolitan area, and Grace Ozmian was only the first of many victims to be murdered . . . and decapitated. Worse still, there's something unique to the city itself that has attracted the evil eye of the killer.

As mass hysteria sets in, Pendergast and D'Agosta find themselves in the crosshairs of an opponent who has threatened the very lifeblood of the city. It'll take all of Pendergast's skill to unmask this most dangerous foe-let alone survive to tell the tale.

They are coauthors of the famed Pendergast series and their recent novels include Fever Dream, Cold Vengeance, Two Graves, and Gideon's Corpse. In addition to his novels, Preston writes about archaeology for the New Yorker and Smithsonian magazines.

I feel like this was not nearly as well developed as previous books. Lots of set up for predictable outcome. Was so disappointed, as they have been my favorite authors for years and I order way in advance and anticipate reading.

Although the plot was predictable, I still thoroughly enjoyed this book. I love this series and can hardly wait fornthe next. I must say that Constance absence was definitely missed. Need to bring her back for the next one. Thank you again gentleman for a great read.

Not up to the standards of the Pendergast series in terms of character development, mystery, or plot cohesion. Still extremely readable because I've come to care about the characters.

Thought this was suppose to be the third book in the series? Crimson shore, the obsidian chamber to this story. I was lost in this one, expecting much more. Not even close in quality than other trilogies.

One of the better plots in this series despite the predictability of the outcome. Extremely well-written. My biggest problem is the absence of Constance Greene. Stephanie Clanahan

Sluggish. Pendergast is great and all but, let's get out of New York and go somewhere exotic or mysterious. Or perhaps, bring back a character from the early days.

Lincoln has spun another thriller that does not disappoint. He takes us into the twisting and turning crazed mind of a very disturbing villain. This novel leaves us trembling, sweating and gasping for breath as we try to find a way to survive this nightmare.

I am a fan of Preston & Child and their Agent Pendergast series. Because I am a fan and have read all previous sixteen novels in the series, I’m always a tiny bit leery when I start a new one: I would hate to be disappointed! Thankfully, again that is not the case with book number seventeen in the Pendergast series. Yay! With City of Endless Night Douglas Preston & Lincoln Child showed me once again why I am a fan. Their books are always packed with tension, building and building to a magnificent crescendo, where you are so caught up, you are completely lost to the action. And their characterization, of even minor characters, is phenomenal. You can’t beat a Preston & Child for the atmosphere and action that keep you turning pages into the very wee hours and gripping your book so tightly your hands cramp up! Be sure to block out a nice section of time where you won’t be disturbed to read City of Endless Night, because you won’t want to put it down. Many thanks to Grand Central Publishing and NetGalley for the advanced copy of this novel for review purposes. I was not required to give a positive review. All opinions are my very own!
