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 & Awards

  • “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.”

    " Wonderful novel! Preston and Child hit it out of the ball park on this book! You will not want to pause this one! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bernie Charbonneau | 11/24/2013

    " 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. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cynthia | 11/22/2013

    " Wasn't one of their best but as always Pendergast is always fun. He's an unbelievable character but hey, it's good entertainment. "

    " Eh - and it totally hurts me to say that. What I loved previously about the Pendergast books was their incredible detail and depth and lately they feel a little slapdash. I "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tara Hall | 8/10/2013

    " Amazing. I could not put this down. Easily as good as the previous Cabinet of Curiosities! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kathleen Foulke | 7/11/2013

    " Good - all the books have a supernatural element (which is explained by the end). This one is zombies. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shari Rosso | 6/28/2013

    " Fairly decent, but I think there have been better Pendergast novels. I'm always glad to get a Pendergast, however. I don't think any will ever live up to Still Life With Crows... Maybe so... that would be great! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elissajeanne boise | 6/19/2013

    " so spooky. voodoo on the isle of manhattan. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bradley Hartman | 3/4/2013

    " As usual, Lincoln and Child are great and Pendergast provides the character the sweeps you off your feet and deep into the imaginary world of mystery and suspense. "

    " I have read all of the books that these two authors have done together, and I think that they get better with every one. This is a great read that looks at 'zombies'! Really interesting and fun to read. Only took me a couple of days. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gini | 3/21/2012

    " Really good one, although Pendergast is kind of turning into a jerk. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Daniel | 2/25/2012

    " I love the way that Mr.Preston and Mr. Child give their stories a supernatural theme but make it sound so plausible at the end. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Randy Mason | 12/18/2011

    " Great Pendergast book, huge death toll of beloved cahracters throughout the series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Beautifultruth | 8/23/2011

    " Found this one the scariest of all their books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stefan | 5/10/2011

    " 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. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Heather | 5/8/2011

    " 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. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Randy | 5/8/2011

    " Great Pendergast book, huge death toll of beloved cahracters throughout the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jake | 5/6/2011

    " Audio Book. I enjoyed this book. I like how the whole book is super-natural and then they just explain it all away at the end. It's all logical. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lindsay | 3/23/2011

    " I am already upset by this book and I just started it! They've killed off one of my favorite characters in the first few pages :( "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Doreen | 3/21/2011

    " I've read pretty much everything that Preston/Child have collaborated on. This particular novel broke my heart because their characters have been developed so well throughout the years that to lose one is difficult. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jbrown | 3/19/2011

    " Another solid story. It started a little slow, but once it got going, it kept me on the edge of my seat. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dustin Crazy | 3/16/2011

    " Really enjoyed this. The opening of the story really grabbed my attention. There were some far-fetched, unrealistic elements but also some beautifully described settings. It's the first book I've read in this series but won't be the last :-) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Calvin | 3/11/2011

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laura | 2/24/2011

    " Even though this book is classified as a Pendergast book, it seems he was more of a secondary character... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Beautifultruth | 2/3/2011

    " Found this one the scariest of all their books. "
