As always this was a wonderful story and as always now I will have to wait ages for the next one! I can never get enough of Pendergast and " Constance. I liked that there was more of Proctor in this book and finally got some answers as to his past. I had only one small niggle and that was with editing - there were many instances of "of" and "off" being wrongly used and for a book that uses language so effectively it jarred just a little. It wasn't enough to spoil the story - nothing can do that for a Pendergast book. I hope the guys are writing the next one already because the waiting is hard.
