Douglas Preston & Lincoln Child - Two Graves
To all fans of Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child’s powerhouse series involving Special Agent Pendergast: Two Graves (no signed copies that I’m aware of but stay tuned, out December 11th) is a must read. For those who are not familiar with their wily, Sherlockian protagonist, this is not the book to start with. I’d say start with Relic or even The Cabinet of Curiosities. What happens in Two Graves is part of an ongoing story arc, and the full impact won’t hit unless you’re familiar with the characters.
That being said, fellow fans, this is a must-read. I can’t say much about the plot because it’s ALL spoilers. Let me just pose these two questions: What would it take to get the relentless Pendergast to give up chasing someone who has done him greivous injury? To get Pendergast to give up on everything? And the second part of the question is, what would bring him back once he’s made up his mind?
I didn’t see the answers to either question coming, and the twists and turns Preston and Child have brought to this story line are breathtaking. Oh, and one of Constance’s secrets is revealed. I can’t wait to see where Preston and Child take the story next!
