After a harrowing, otherworldly confrontation on the shores of Exmouth, Massachusetts, Special Agent A.X.L. Pendergast is missing, presumed dead.
A SHOCKING RETURN
Sick with grief, Pendergast's ward, Constance, retreats to her chambers beneath the family mansion at 891 Riverside Drive--only to be taken captive by a shadowy figure from the past.
AN INTERNATIONAL MANHUNT
Proctor, Pendergast's longtime bodyguard, springs to action, chasing Constance's kidnapper through cities, across oceans, and into wastelands unknown.
BUT IN A WORLD OF BLACK AND WHITE, NOTHING IS AS IT SEEMS
And by the time Proctor discovers the truth, a terrifying engine has stirred-and it may already be too late . . .
A mile-a-minute thriller with a deeply entertaining plot and marvelous characters, in a setting that will chill your blood, and not only because it's 10 degrees below zero and covered with snow. My copy is full of crumbs because I couldn't put it down long enough to eat.--Diana Gabaldon on White Fire
Fast-moving, sophisticated and bursting with surprises... If you're willing to surrender to Preston and Child's fiendish imaginations, you might devour the Pendergast books the way kids do Halloween candy...There's nothing else like them.--The Washington Post on Blue Labyrinth
It's like Christmas for lovers of suspense when the words Preston & Child once again appear on a book cover. It's a truly great Christmas when the main character of that novel is Aloysius X.L. Pendergast. For those who have read these books voraciously, it's not a surprise to learn that this latest tale is one that will keep you riveted until the very end...Preston & Child continue to make these books the absolute best there is in the suspense realm.--Suspense Magazine on Crimson Shore
Keep[s] the excitement meter pegged ... Action-adventure with a macabre, sometimes-fantastical flair.--Kirkus Reviews
New readers will be hooked...Die-hard fans will add this to their must-read lists.--Library Journal (Starred Review) of Crimson Shore - November 2015 LibraryReads Pick
Preston & Child once again bring A.X.L. Pendergast to life and offer up a host of thrills, heart-pumping action, and an intricate plot that pits a vengeful killer against (still) the most interesting character in fiction.--Suspense Magazine on Blue Labyrinth
Rivetingly superb ... great fun ... thriller-writing of the highest order. A lavish, brilliantly conceived puzzle that pieces together neo-gothic plotting with splendidly rich tones.--Jon Land, Providence Journal
The best Pendergast book yet - a collision between past and present that will leave you breathless.--Lee Child on White Fire
The latest novel in Preston & Child's Pendergast series picks up from the cliffhanger-ending of CRIMSON SHORE and doesn't let up. The authors keep readers guessing... The crisp writing and exemplary stories are still in abundance in this consistently exciting and never predictable series.--Jeff Ayers, Associated Press
These dynamic authors' best thriller to date.--White Fire was one of Library Journal's Top 10 Thrillers of 2013

Guys, please return to the fire and magic of The Cabinet of Curiosities. You are stuck in a narrative loop. You need a breakout premise. There are hints that you may take Constance and Procter on their own adventures. Who knows? That may work but I am not sure I would dial in. Pendergast is still the draw. This avatar mix of Sherlock Holmes, Jason Bourne, Spooky Mulder and Dr. Laszlo Kreisler has been fun but now he is a drag. Hopefully, you can rekindle this series...so many are hoping you do.

I've stopped halfway through. I'm trying to enjoy it and I'm sure I will, once someone releases the correct version. This one is absolutely littered with grammatical and spelling mistakes. It's an absolute mess.
