As with all books in this series there is much more to the story and lots of blood and gore involved. Pendergast is drawn in when a local arsonist emerges and someone appears desperate to stop Corrie at any cost. What is so terrible about this past secret that has everyone on edge?
If you are new to the series start with book 1 [book:Relic|67035] and persist for the first few in the series. I love it and cannot wait to read the next book!
Nonetheless these books are hard to put down.

As I never really enjoyed the Helen trilogy was I absolutely thrilled to finally read a Preston and Child book that had a really interesting and entertaining story. I was also glad that Corrie Swanson was back. She's a favorite character and I loved that she had a big part in this book!
