Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child return
with Dance of Death, featuring Special Agent Aloysius Pendergast.
At the end of their last book, Agent Pendergast's brother, Diogenes,
was rescuing Agent Pendergast from the niche in the castle in which
Agent Pendergast had been entombed. Now, Detective Vincent D'Agosta
is charged with figuring out just what happened and who killed Agent
Pendergast. D'Agosta and his partner, Captain Laura Hayward, are trying
to figure out just how the murder was carried out.
Before they got very far, there
was another murder, then another. Both victims were friends of Agent
Pendergast. At both scenes, evidence was left behind of the killer's
identity. D'Agosta was in a quandary as to what was going on, until
a black limousine stopped and snatched him off the street. The passenger
was a strange-looking man D'Agosta had never seen before.
However, the man soon revealed his
identity. To D'Agosta's surprise and delight, the strange man was
none other than Agent Pendergast himself. D'Agosta realized then
that Agent Pendergast had not been bragging when he said he was
a master of disguise. D'Agosta would never have recognized him.
However, Pendergast had a job for
D'Agosta. He needed D'Agosta to help him stop Diogenes. Diogenes
had planned a perfect crime, and Pendergast was not his target,
at least not directly. He was murdering Pendergast's closest friends
and Pendergast was afraid D'Agosta would be next. Pendergast wanted
to warn his friend before Diogenes found him.
Once again, authors Lincoln & Child
have concocted a convoluted plot with more twists and turns than
a sidewinder. Actor René Auberjonois gives another sterling performance
in the reading of this fine mystery. If you liked Brimstone,
you'll enjoy Dance of Death. Here is the sequel for which
we've all been waiting. Pick up your copy today!
