“This is the most recent novel concerning FBI Special Agent Aloysius Pendergast, one of my favorite fictional characters.
The last book I read in this series, Cemetery Dance (it was a couple of books ago, but it somehow sneaked by me), was a bit of a disappointment, because there wasn't a lot of Pendergast in it. All is forgiven, because Aloysius is back with a vengeance in this one.
This book ties up one very big mystery in Aloysius's history, and introduces several more. It is obvious that we're not done with Pendergast yet, and that makes me very happy!
If you've never read any of these, I recommend them highly. Very enjoyable and fun reads! ”
