#1 bestselling authors Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child return with their next blockbuster Pendergast novel. Special Agent Pendergast takes on a private case in Exmouth, Massachusetts-a quaint village on the coast north of Salem-to investigate the theft of a valuable wine cellar. He travels to the seaside town with his ward, Constance Greene, where they quickly discover something far more sinister: a bricked-up niche in the wine cellar that holds the remains of a man, tortured and then entombed alive 150 years ago. But why? The puzzle is compounded when they discover a murdered body-covered with mysterious symbols-in the salt marshes behind Exmouth ... the place where, legend has it, the real witches of Salem took refuge after fleeing the 1692 witch hunts.

"Rene Auberjonois gives a clear, measured performance as mysterious FBI Special Agent A.X.L. Pendergast and his equally mysterious ward, Constance Greene, leave Manhattan to investigate dark secrets on the coast of Massachusetts. The theft of a collection of red wine becomes a series of sanguinary mysteries. Masters of the thriller Preston and Child write a compelling story as their unflappable protagonists uncover a mix of dark human motives and events that border on the supernatural. Auberjonois's crisp tenor carries the story. While minor characters blend together, his main characters have distinct voices. Consistent with the story's tone, his delivery approaches melodrama but rarely overdoes it. A must for devotees of the series. F.C. © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine"
