Two brothers: one, top FBI agent Aloysius Pendergast; the other, Diogenes, a brilliant and twisted criminal. There is already an undying hatred between them—now, a perfect crime and the ultimate challenge: Stop me if you can.

Praised as a “ruthless descendant of Holmes” (Publishers Weekly), Agent Pendergast has become one of crime fiction’s most endearing characters. His greatest enemy is one who has stalked him all his life, his cunning and diabolical brother Diogenes. And Diogenes has thrown down the gauntlet.

Now, several of the people closest to Pendergast are viciously murdered, and Pendergast is framed for the deeds. On the run from federal authorities, with only the help of his old friend NYPD Lieutenant Vincent D’Agosta, Pendergast must stop his brother. But how can he stop a man that is his intellectual equal—one who has had twenty years to plan the world’s most horrendous crime?

Quotes & Awards

  • “Intriguing…Think Sherlock Holmes locked in a death struggle with his smarter brother, Mycroft. Like Brimstone, this novel doesn’t end so much as simply pause while the authors work on the next installment…Pretty darn good.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Engaging…Listeners need not be familiar with those other offerings to become thoroughly immersed in this story…Helping to orient new listeners is the energetic work of Scott Brick, who flawlessly voices the smooth Southern drawl of FBI Agent Aloysius Pendergast and his evil brother, Diogenes, as well as the tough New York accent of NYPD Detective Vincent D’Agosta. Authors and narrator will likely make listeners seek out other Lincoln Child efforts new and old.”


  • “This is an ambitious novel with a gimmicky plot that could have landed with a resounding thud. Instead, the story soars; the cast of familiar characters…is given a chance to stretch, and the authors deliver an exhilarating finale. Good stuff, and there’s more to come, as the novel’s last lines make clear.”


  • “Goes down like cheddar-flavored potato chips.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • A New York Times Bestseller
  • A USA Today Bestseller

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Craig Brown | 2/18/2014

    " First I read the third book in the series, then this book, which is the 2nd book, why, because it is not obvious. Shouldn't an author number them, like they did in Star Wars. I liked this book, it explained a lot in the 3rd book, now I will read the first book, which should help this book. I am a little tired of Preston/Child, the books are so similar. They have a formula that works and they are going to ride the train. Now on to Brimstone. "

    " Love this book! Diogenes is a great bad guy and it was a fun read. It made me cry out "No" more than once. A must read! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Christian | 2/6/2014

    " A very nice book, unfortunately I've read the last part of the Diognees trilogy first so some of the twists hadn't had the full impact on me. "

    " I really do hate that Diogenes. "
