    " Good book. Unsure how I feel about the ending. Not as satisfying as "Cabinet" but good. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brian | 2/15/2014

    " I admit, it has been a while since I read this one. I still remember a lot of parts of it clearly, though, and the last page I can still remember very clearly. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sarah | 2/15/2014

    " if you like investigations and mystery's you will love this book "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ramatre Matre | 2/14/2014

    " This is one of my favorite Pendergast novels - creepy scary. It also can "stand-alone" so would be a good place to start if you've never read any of the others. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shane | 2/4/2014

    " Pendergast meets Corrie Swanson for the first time. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lee | 1/30/2014

    " Instead of New York City, Pendergast is tromping around the dusty cornfields of western Kansas. Supposedly there on vacation, to help the locals investigating a gruesome killing. Without his '59 Rolls Royce at the beginning of the story, he walks from the sheriff's office to check on a room. I can imagine the 'ol lady looking out her window, and seeing this pale looking man, dressed like an undertaker, strolling down the dirt road....I'm sure she thought death was coming to knock on her door. He's such a great character. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tricia | 1/21/2014

    " Definitely scary! A mysterious serial killer attacks and kills people in a small Kansas town, leaving their bodies displayed in cornfield. Absolutely creepy! But I was disappointed in the ending. It was a bit too pat for me. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Pat | 1/17/2014

    " I listened to this book on a cassette and I must say, Rene Auberjonois narrating was simply superb. Not only was the book fantastic, but the reader was as well. He brought Agent Pendergast alive. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gina Fava | 1/11/2014

    " Love Agent Pendergast. Superb research behind the entertaining plot. Epilogue capped it off nicely. Would recommend to anyone in search of a classic investigator amid real life circumstances with a sick twist. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Randy | 12/26/2013

    " A Kansas town is hit by a series of murders. A serial killer or something even more sinister. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Stephen Holmes | 12/26/2013

    " I must say that I really enjoyed this one. I liked seeing Pendergast get out of New York. Also I loved meeting Corrie Swanson. I think that she was a great character and wish that I get to see more of her in the later books. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Taylor Leigh | 12/26/2013

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lawrence | 12/23/2013

    " I have enjoyed all the Preston and Child stories I've read, but this would be my least favorite. Maybe because I had figured out the ending so long before I actually go to it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chalise | 12/10/2013

    " So intense I could not go to bed!!!! Prendergast is humorous and stoic at the same time, it is fabulous! "

    " My second favorite Agent Pendergast book which features are title character solving a mystery of a brutal murder committed in a corn field. Teaming up Pendergast with a local Goth Girl was a smart move. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brendan | 2/10/2013

    " Who would have thought a book about a small Kansas town could turn out to be such a thrilling novel. The intense storyline and captivating characters made this book almost impossible to put down. Preston and Child are truly gifted authors who never disappoint. "
