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.

Professional reviews

"Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child have a reputation for writing sinister horror stories set in New York City. This one does not disappoint. Mysterious FBI agent Pendergast returns to solve the murder of NEW YORK TIMES reporter William Smithback, whose killer is plainly visible on a security camera. The only trouble is: The killer had died two weeks before the murder. RenŽ Auberjonois, who played the alien Odo on "Star Trek: Deep Space Nine" and the grim Paul Lewiston on "Boston Legal," lends the proper air of gravitas to his performance. With the underlying story featuring zombies and the undead, it takes the sober Auberjonois to help maintain the credibility of the plot. His sincere delivery is perfect for a strange story that is more than a little creepy. M.S. (c) AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine"
