    It s a mystery to me why the plotting in this series is so much better than in the other series written by these authors together, and also in the books written by them separately I read one two days ago that was unpardonable I ve read every book in this series and it s still entertaining me In this one, Pendergast is forced to work with a new partner, Coldmoon, a Native American who s mission is to never let Pendergast go rogue since Pendergast s suspects tend not to survive long enough to It s [...]

    While this was a good mystery with some great new characters, it lacked the depth and atmosphere that has been such a part of the rest of the series The setup was fantastic and the mystery compelling, but the ending felt rather rushed Still, it is always great to spend time with Pendergast I m looking forward to Constance in the next book

    What a joy it is to enjoy a book so much that you re sad when you reach the end Over the years, I ve become a fan of several series, including this one never or rarely missing a new installment And over those same years, I ve watched way too many of them become rather stale characters I d come to love fall off their professional games, take on lesser roles in their own stories and even, in one instance, continue to act like a silly pre teenager well into what should be grown up years Not What a [...]
