Publisher Description

William Smithback, a New York Times reporter, and his wife Nora Kelly, a Museum of Natural History archeologist, are brutally attacked in their apartment on the Upper West side of Manhattan. Eyewitnesses claim and the security camera confirms the killer seen leaving the building was their strange, sinister neighbor—a man who, by all reports, was already dead.

Captain Hayward leads the official homicide investigation, while Pendergast, D'Agosta, and Nora undertake a private quest for the truth. Their serpentine journey takes them into a part of Manhattan they never imagined could exist: a secretive and deadly hotbed of Obeah, the West Indian Zombii cult of sorcery and magic. And it is here they find their true peril is just beginning.

Quotes

  • “This taut page-turner can only add to the authors’ growing fan base.”

    - Publishers Weekly
  • “No one has ever accused this writing team of lacking guts…Individually, these two writers turn out books that are solid, competent, workmanlike. Together, they manage to kick it up several notches, producing novels that are elegantly written and feature unique characters and eerie, compelling stories. For fans of the Pendergast series, this is a must-read.”

    - Booklist
  • “Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child have a reputation for writing sinister horror stories set in New York City. This one does not disappoint…With the underlying story featuring zombies and the undead, it takes the sober Auberjonois to help maintain the credibility of the plot. His sincere delivery is perfect for a strange story that is more than a little creepy.”

    " Another fine mystery from our intrepid special agent Pendergrast. This is my fourth or fifth novel by this duo of writers and I enjoy these story's every time. This one agent Pendergast is chasing a religious cult that seems to be able to conjure up zombies only Preston/Child can write. If you follow the adventures of this special FBI agent then you will eat up this book and won't want to wait for the next one. "

    " Cemetery Dance, like all the Preston & Child novels I've read, was exciting, fast-paced and jammed full of plot twists and sudden surprises. Some of the scenes felt a tad too improbable, but the totally unexpected ending overshadowed any of the book's flaws. "

    " Cemetery Dance is certainly an entertaining read. I haven't read a Preston Child mystery in a while and had forgotten what a hoot FBI Special Agent Aloysius Pendergast is! However, this one contained too much vodoo and zombii storyline for me. "
