Pendergast, the world's most enigmatic FBI Special Agent, returns to New York City to investigate a murderous cult. William Smithback, a New York Times reporter, and his wife Nora Kelly, a Museum of Natural History archaeologist, are brutally attacked in their apartment on Manhattan's Upper West Side. Eyewitnesses claim, and the security camera confirms, that the assailant was their strange, sinister neighbor-a man who, by all reports, was already dead and buried weeks earlier. While Captain Laura Hayward leads the official investigation, Pendergast and Lieutenant Vincent D'Agosta undertake their own private-and decidedly unorthodox-quest for the truth. Their serpentine journey takes them to an enclave of Manhattan they never imagined could exist: a secretive, reclusive cult of Obeah and vodou which no outsiders have ever survived. From the Compact Disc edition.

Professional reviews

"Fearless Vincent D'Agosta and quirky Aloysius Pendergast are front and center in this thriller involving urban terror. William Smithback, a NEW YORK TIMES reporter, and his wife, Nora Kelly, an anthropologist at the Museum of Natural History, are attacked in their apartment, seemingly by their creepy neighbor, Colin Fearing. However, Fearing's body was found floating in the Harlem River 10 days earlier. Scott Brick narrates with restraint and convincingly finds good regional accents for the characters. With skillful pauses he ratchets up the tension in just the right spots. A religious cult that practices animal sacrifice and reanimation of the dead is made real by Brick's matter-of-fact narration.
