Description

A long-buried family secret resurfaces when one of Aloysius Pendergast's most implacable enemies shows up on his doorstep as a murdered corpse. The mystery has all the hallmarks of the perfect murder, save for an enigmatic clue: a piece of turquoise lodged in the stomach of the deceased. The gem leads Pendergast to an abandoned mine on the shore of California's desolate Salton Sea, which in turn propels him on a journey of discovery deep into his family's sinister past. But Pendergast learns there is more at work than a ghastly episode of family history: he is soon stalked by a subtle killer bent on vengeance over an ancient transgression. In short order, Pendergast is caught in a wickedly clever plot, which will leave him stricken in mind and body...and may well end with his death.

Critiques

"The best Pendergast book yet - a collision between past and present that will leave you breathless." (Lee Child - White Fire)
"Preston and Child have created a terrific mix of mystery and the unexpected that will keep you reading into the late hours of the night. They promise a great read and they have delivered." (Clive Cussler)

Twists and Tuns in the Pendergast Family Tree

This novel opens with a surprise on Pendergast's doorstep. This novel explores the Pendergast tree and dig into his history. I liked this aspect. I like that Constance green is back in the picture. The whole series is a modern day Sherlock Holmes series of stories (with many different Watsons). Rene Auberjonis is the long time narrator and does an outstanding performance.

If you have not read any of these novels, you really have a great deal of work ahead of you. I love these novels because they are heavy on thrill and very light on blood and gore. I recommend you read this latest, more of the Pendergast story is always interesting.

Bizarre, Outlandish, Wonderful Fun

One does begin to wonder how many homicidal billionaires bent on exacting some sort of multi-generational revenge there can realistically be in the world - but of course, if you're a fan of P&C, you're probably pretty comfortable suspending disbelief so you can enjoy the spectacular ride.

As a fan since "The Relic," I found this story really satisfying - a deliciously twisty mystery that takes us from an abandoned resort town in California to the slums of Rio de Janeiro to the basement of the New York Museum of Natural History. And of course all the unusual suspects are here as well: irascible curators, intimidating Brazilian drug lords, exotic poisons, and clues that lead back into the Pendergast family's sinister past...

I've actually read positive reviews of this book by people who haven't read any of the previous entries in the Pendergast series, but it's hard to imagine reading this as a standalone - there are so many favorite characters from previous novels and references to earlier events. Those who have followed the many adventures of Pendergast will be thrilled, though - I certainly was. The best of this series in a long time!

Rene Auberjonois is, as always, marvelous.

Pendergast novels just keep getting better

I am a huge fan of this series and have enjoyed all the books, some more than others. However, this one is absolutely my new favorite. This story will be most meaningful for those of us who have read all the Pendergast novels and can keep track of the characters. The authors pull characters and events from the past into this story so well. I really enjoyed some of the "old characters" back again in a new adventure. Constance was wonderful. This story is full of the usual action, but very moving also, as Pendergast deals with facing death himself as well as the violent death of a family member. The relationship between Pendergast and Constance becomes clearer. The narrator, as always, was great. You will love this book and it will be especially meaningful for you if you know the characters. Now I have to wait for the next Pendergast novel! Hurry up guys!!

A walloping surprise in an already great series

If you already love the Pendergast books this will knock your socks off. How these guys (Preston and Childs), can have rejuvenated this series so far into their ongoing story, is completely amazing and unexpected. Blue Labyrinth is rich and surprising and totally satisfying. Just read it.

Outstanding!

This book is an overall home run! Great story and extremely entertaining narration. The narration was very well done and added to the overall excellence of the book. I would highly recommend this book and all other written by the authors Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child, both as a team as well as their individual works.

Surprisingly Delightful!

A complicated drama with an extremely slow build. However, the story continued to captivate my interest. The narration was surprisingly strong and good and I soon found myself fully engaged in the story.

Great listen!

Another great twisty/turny story following Pendergast and Constance. I really liked the way Constance's character was developed in this one. She is a formidable foe for the bad guys!

Stays with the tradition of excellence for this series.

Tightknit story line that lasts throughout the entire narrative, keeping you on the edge to the very end.
