City of Endless Night

What start as a manhunt for the missing wife of th wealthy tech billionaire becomes something altogether different when the young oman 's body is discovered in an abandoned warehouse in Kew Gardens, Queens, the head nowhere to be found. It ppears there may be two killers on the loose -- one responsible for young gir 's death, another responsible for the mutilation. A pair of such dastardly killers requires a team of equally talented investigators. Luckily, both Vincent D'Agosta and Special Agent Pendergast are back in town.

D'Agosta hopes that working a case back on his home turf for the sixt time in years will reinvigorate the FBI Special Agent and give him an opportunity to flex his investigative might. But either is prepared to face a killer -- or killers -- as diabolical as this. It ill take som of Pendergast and D'Agosta 's intelligence and strength simply to match wits -- let alone stay alive.

Spending too much time on Pendergast takes the luster off of his mystery and exposes him for the genre power fantasy that he is.

I for one, am sick of that.Secondly, the uthors are clearly tired of the protagonist, and it shows in how little life each book has now.

Interestingly though this villain was clearly competent and dangerous, certainly a match for Pendergast, the first time I elt that Pendergast was in any real danger was back in Reliquary -- that moment when he 's getting ready to com into underground Manhattan, and narrator describes him as " the ast of the great explorers. " You really felt it at that moment, that this ook was taking you somewhere original, exotic, and dangerous.I 'll keep reading, because when you 've grown up with th series it 's toug to let go, and they 're still entertaining books.

Although working again with his fiance, Detective D'Agosta, Pendergast shows little interest, taking it for the punishment it is intended to hav.

The is back to form, Pendergast doing what he does best.

he source of the screaming comes from the boys themselves ...... never a peep from the headless one.Preston& Child present their 17th book in the Pendergast Series.

Something to hang a hat on ...... there 's a missing head that does n't show up in that leafy mound.The unfortunate victim turns out to be Grace Ozmian, a young socialite living the high life on daddy 's billions.

The questions keep piling up as the body count rises ....... wealthy individuals who lose their heads much like ol' Grace.

D'Agosta is written this time around as front and center with our Pendergast more on the peripheral until the end.

Ah, finally a Pendergast that feels a little bit more old school.

* sigh* I guess that means we are back to Constance in the firs one ( hide spoiler) ] I have said it before, and I could tell it onc, if you hav actuall reading Pendergast, what hav you doing???

While it does n't have the spooky elements that are ften in books by these authors, I did n't miss them.

I have read them all and if possible they get better and better.This one starts out with a young, spoiled New York socialite found murdered and ecapitated.

Then nother murder occurs with the same M.O. Is there a serial killer roaming the streets of New York? As always Pendergast is exceptional and a detective to the highest order, quirks and all.
