The thrillers of Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child stand head and
shoulders above their rivals (Publishers Weekly). Preston
and Child's Relic and The Cabinet of Curiosities were
chosen by readers in a National Public Radio poll as being among
the one hundred greatest thrillers ever written, and Relic
was made into a number-one box office hit movie. 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.
Lincoln Child is a former book editor who has published five novels
of his own, including the huge bestseller Deep Storm.
Readers can sign up for The Pendergast File, a monthly strangely entertaining note from the authors, at their website, www.PrestonChild.com. The authors welcome visitors to their alarmingly active Facebook page, where they post regularly.
Another highly entertaining and genuinely thrilling story from
Preston & Child starring their romantic, faintly gothic, and always
mysterious FBI agent, Aloysius Pendergast. As always the prose is
elegant, replete with exquisite descriptions, and this time we're
treated to dashes of historic characters Conan Doyle and Oscar
Wilde, as well as a positively delicious serving of the great
Sherlock Holmes. Through myriad shocks, surprises, twists and
turns, the suspense never lets up. Great fun to the last
page.--Anne Rice on White Fire
Sherlock Holmes fans will relish Preston and Child's 13th novel featuring eccentric FBI agent Aloysius Pendergast (after 2012's Two Graves), one of their best in this popular series...easily stands on its own with only passing references to Pendergast's complex backstory.--Publishers Weekly (starred review) on White Fire
The best Pendergast book yet - a collision between past and present that will leave you breathless.--Lee Child on White Fire
