In this latest instalment of the number one New York Times best-selling series, FBI Agent Pendergast faces the strangest, most challenging puzzle of his career, when bodies - drained to the last drop of blood - begin appearing in Savannah, GA.
A fabulous heist: on the evening of November 24, 1971, D. B. Cooper hijacked Flight 305 - Portland to Seattle - with a fake bomb, collected a ransom of $200,000, and then parachuted from the rear of the plane, disappearing into the night...and into history.
A brutal crime steeped in legend and malevolence: 50 years later, Agent Pendergast takes on a bizarre and gruesome case: in the ghost-haunted city of Savannah, Georgia, bodies are found with no blood left in their veins - sowing panic and reviving whispered tales of the infamous Savannah Vampire.
A case like no other: As the mystery rises along with the body count, Pendergast and his partner, Agent Coldmoon, race to understand how - or if - these murders are connected to the only unsolved skyjacking in American history. Together, they uncover not just the answer...but an unearthly evil beyond all imagining.

I was really intrigued and pulled in by the take on DB Cooper and the mystery of how the "murders" were committed. The story for me was well on it's way to 4 or 5 stars.
Unfortunately, the build up and intrigue came crashing down in the final act of the book. Did not buy into the aliens from another dimension plot at all. Character development into side characters like the cop commander, the photographer lady, the 2 'journalists', the annoying senator were all more or less completely wasted and irrelevant.
It seems like the authors won't ever be able to regain the creative heights of the best books in the series (Relic, Cabinets of Curiosities, A Still Life with Crows) where fantastical ideas (e.g age extension serums or genetically mutated or warped humans) are done in such a way where it doesn't seem completely unrealistic and contrived and where the side characters all play a key part to the overall plot.
I hope that you enjoy their books as much as I did

Unlike other people reviewing this book, I can accept that there was a creature and time travel as part of this story. After all, the series began with Relic and has probably veered away from that to appeal to wider audiences.
However, SPOILER ALERT, it's the scenes where Pendergast travels to the lair of the creatures that are just plain crazy. It's like a deus ex machina where the authors had no idea how to really end this because they'd created a foe too powerful. And the time paradox it would have created wasn't resolved as if the creature was killed before it travelled to our world, how could there have been all that destruction or any deaths to begin with?
Apart from that, it's a good story and goes back a bit to the series roots. But the ending doesn't fill me with a lot of hope for book 21 if it focuses on more time travel.
The authors have written a story which links FBI law enforcement with science and the supernatural. They are always bang up to date with the technology they include, but this book takes that to a whole new level. I was also pleased to see the long running situation between Pendergast and his ward progress and hope we will see more of that in the next book! Great read, thank you.
The creature was utter ludicrous
