"Two Graves " is a thriller by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child, accomplished writers both individually and as co-creators.
FBI Special Agent Aloysius Pendergast has been living with the knowledge that his wife was dead for the last twelve years. At first he thought her death an accident, but then he heard she had been murdered. Upon learning that his wife, Helen, is alive, he arranges a glorious reunion only to have her snatched from him once more.
Now that he knows she is alive, he devotes his every effort to finding her again and rescuing her from the clutches of her abductors.
Audiobook listeners will admire Agent Pendergast. He is a little like Sherlock Holmes, but he is also intensely focused, highly intelligent and a little eccentric to boot. He provides a lovable character with whom readers and listeners alike will identify. Nothing will put him off the trail of his beloved wife, not even when he is caught up in a chilling serial killer hunt in New York containing shades of the supernatural.
Pendergast's hunt takes him deep into the forests of South America, where he will confront evil incarnate.
There are a number of layers to this chilling, suspenseful thriller by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child.
About the authors:
Douglas Preston was born in 1957 in Cambridge, Massachusetts in 1955 and grew up near Wellesley. He attended Pomona College in California and studied in a variety of areas, finally settling on English and literature. He worked at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City and has taught writing at Princeton University.
Lincoln Child was born in Westport, Connecticut. Following a childhood love of writing, he attended Carleton College in Minnesota, where he majored in English and eventually wo rked as a publishing assistant with St. Martin's Press in New York City.
For twelve years, he believed she died in an accident. Then he was told she’d been murdered. Now, FBI Special Agent Aloysius Pendergast discovers that his beloved wife Helen is alive. But their reunion is cut short when Helen is brazenly abducted before his eyes. And Pendergast is forced to embark on a furious cross-country chase to rescue her.
But all this turns out to be mere prologue to a far larger plot: one that unleashes a chillingly, almost supernaturally, adept serial killer on New York City. And Helen has one more surprise in store for Pendergast: a piece of their shared past that makes him the one man most suited to hunting down the killer.
His pursuit of the murderer will take Pendergast deep into the trackless forests of South America, to a hidden place where the evil that has blighted both his and Helen’s lives lies in wait, a place where he will learn all too well the truth of the ancient proverb:
Before you embark on a journey of revenge, dig two graves.
