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

  • “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.”

    AudioFile

  • “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

    " It pains me to say this but I might be dine with the series. This book was in trouble from the start. I didn't even buy the mystery. I have struggled through the last few books. I will probably give it one more but it had better be good. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Charleen | 2/7/2014

    " As with the novels featuring his brother, we get to see a more personal side of Pendergast in this one, focused on the events surrounding his wife's death. I thought it was a solid addition to the series (MUCH better than the previous book). My biggest complaint is that it ends with one big issue still unresolved. Much as I love the idea of a trilogy based on Pendergast's wife and think it will be a great one, I would have waited and read them all together if I'd known what this book was setting up. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Jerry | 1/31/2014

    " My first Pendegrast novel. I'll give him another shot, but this wasn't as good as I was hoping it would be given the fantastic start. Book starts and ends pretty well, but gets pretty muddled in the middle. Really took a bit of effort to power through. In fairness, this is the tenth book in a series that I haven't read any of the previous novels. Could be that this just doesn't do well as a stand alone. Seemed to be just a bunch of unexplained or loose ends. Agent Pendegrast not the most lovable character by a long shot. "
