#1 bestselling authors Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child return with their next blockbuster Pendergast novel.

Special Agent Pendergast takes on a private case in Exmouth, Massachusetts—a quaint village on the coast north of Salem—to investigate the theft of a valuable wine cellar. He travels to the seaside town with his ward, Constance Greene, where they quickly discover something far more sinister: a bricked-up niche in the wine cellar that holds the remains of a man, tortured and then entombed alive 150 years ago. But why? The puzzle is compounded when they discover a murdered body—covered with mysterious symbols—in the salt marshes behind Exmouth … the place where, legend has it, the real witches of Salem took refuge after fleeing the 1692 witch hunts.

    Suspense Magazine

  • “New readers will be hooked…Die-hard fans will add this to their must-read lists.”

    Library Journal (starred review)

  • “The book is entertaining, spiced up with arcane words like “desuetude” and quirky descriptions…An appealingly quirky hero…Pendergast is a modern Sherlock Holmes, albeit one preferring absinthe to cocaine.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “Rene Auberjonois gives a clear, measured performance as mysterious FBI Special Agent A.X.L…Auberjonois’ crisp tenor carries the story. While minor characters blend together, his main characters have distinct voices. Consistent with the story’s tone, his delivery approaches melodrama but rarely overdoes it. A must for devotees of the series.”
