Still Life With Crows (Agent Pendergast Series Book 4) Kindle Edition
|New from||Used from|
Medicine Creek, Kansas, has been slowly dying for the last century. A small, quiet place, the primary occupation is still farming, Main Street is a stretch of old and dusty businesses, and the nearest mall is 200 miles away. In a town where nothing changes, the community is terrified after a series of grisly murders takes place. Even more alarming, the bodies are displayed in bizarre tableaus. With the entire town in shock, FBI Agent Pendergast arrives from New Orleans to investigate.
From the fields to the local caves, Pendergast discovers the remnants of a Prohibition-era moonshine operation and the truth behind one of the town's greatest mysteries: who was behind the Medicine Creek Massacre of 1865. Now, Pendergast must discover the twisted secret hiding within a four-generation Kansas family – before someone else is murdered.

Soon Special agent Pendergast of the F.B.I arrives in town and along with the town misfit, Corrie Swanson, sets about investigating not just the murders and strange events, but also a mass murder that occurred in the town over a hundred years previously.
It took me a while to get through this one as it can be slow going at times but, the pace picked up. There are quite a few deaths (which I like in a book), and There are some side stories but it all comes together to make a really good story.
I give Still Life With Crows 5 🌟
The book had me hooked from page 5 onwards and the ending is the most thought provoking I have read in years, if you think about it will cause you to wonder “what if…” . These two guys now have me hooked and I will look to read most of what they have written and if it is up to this standard then I will be happy. Jeff Long (The Descent) and co. must now reach that extra level as the bar has now been raised in this genre.
A fantastic book that I can highly recommend. Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child have done a wonderful job on this story, one you won't be able to put down.
Go on, give yourself a thrill, buy a copy now.
