More suspense and violence than I usually read, but I couldn't leave it. Very well crafted and written.

A Real Page Turner!
This is an absolutely fantastic read! It kept me on the edge of my seat all the way through (which didn't take long). I could not put it down. Action, adventure, suspense in a real thriller of a story! I didn't realize how quickly I went through this one. Great Read!

Oldie but Goodie
This is an older book, written when the partnership of Preston and Child was young, but it is still great. A wild, rollicking thriller about a monster loose in the New York Museum of Natural History in New York City. Special Agent Pendergast steals every scene he is in. A perfect Southern gentleman with a mind to match Einstein. He couldn't exist. He is too perfect, but the reader wants him to and this reader thoroughly enjoyed his adventure in New York and wants to read more. Be sure all the doors and windows are locked if you read this one at night. Enjoy.
