Revenge is not sweet: it is essential.

Special Agent Pendergast is putting to rest long-ignored possessions reminiscent of his wife Helen’s tragic death, only to make a stunning—and dreadful—discovery. Helen had been mauled by an unusually large and vicious lion while they were big game hunting in Africa. But now Pendergast learns that her rifle—her only protection from the beast—had been deliberately loaded with blanks. Who could have wanted Helen dead … and why?

With Lieutenant Vincent D’Agosta’s assistance, Pendergast embarks on a quest to uncover the mystery of his wife’s murder. It is a journey that sends him deep into her past—where he learns much that Helen herself had wished to keep hidden. As Pendergast probes more deeply into the riddle—the answer to which is revealed in a night of shocking violence, deep in the Louisiana bayou—he finds himself faced with an even greater question: who was the woman he married?

Quotes & Awards

  • “A calibrated thriller from two masters of the craft.”

    Barnes & Noble editorial review

  • “Once again, the bestselling authors show they have few peers at creating taut scenes of suspense. Their restraint in the book’s early sections make the payoffs all the more compelling.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Odd but brilliant...Narrator René Auberjonois is equally adept at portraying Pendergast’s upper-crust Southern origins and New York cop Vincent D’Agosta’s brusque directness. With Auberjonois’ consistent narration, the quirky threads of the story...eventually come together to create an intriguing premise. As Pendergast discovers that his beloved wife kept a myriad of secrets, Auberjonois’ characterization dramatizes the special agent’s confusion over his wife’s loyalty.”


  • “This is no dream; it’s the authors’ best book in years...Not to be missed by either newcomers or die-hard fans.”

    Library Journal

  • “Readers of previous Pendergast novels will welcome this installment starring the exceedingly peculiar FBI special agent. Stylish, dark, and tense.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • A New York Times Bestseller
  • A USA Today Bestseller

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Stephanie | 2/12/2014

    " Great addition to the series; loved this book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by David France | 2/5/2014

    " This book had Agent Pendergast doing his black suit wearing, rolls driving, mysterious family background stuff as usual. A nice diversion for the summer if you like the Preston-Child formula. This book was much less supernatural than the last few books they have put out. No evil Tibetan whirling dervishes flying around a cruise ship in this title. Thank-God! I had about given up on them after the last book, but decided I may stick with them after this latest work. "

    " Another page-turner by Preston and Child. Really, you can't go wrong picking up a Pendergast book! "

    " This book had potential but fizzled out 3/4ths of the way through. Disappointing ending. no resolve "
