Corrie Swanson sets out to solve a long-forgotten mystery. In 1876, in a remote mining camp called Roaring Fork in the Colorado Rockies, several miners were killed in devastating grizzly bear attacks. Now the town has become an exclusive ski resort and its historic cemetery has been dug up to make way for development. Corrie has arranged to examine the remains of the dead miners. But in doing so she makes a shocking discovery that threatens the resort’s very existence. The town’s leaders, trying to stop her from exposing their community’s dark and bloody past,arrest and jail her.

Special Agent Pendergast of the FBI arrives to help—just as a series of brutal arson attacks on multimillion dollar homes terrify the town and drive away tourists. Drawn irresistibly into the investigation, Pendergast discovers an unlikely secret in Roaring Fork’s past, connecting the resort to a chance meeting between Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and Oscar Wilde. With the town under siege, and Corrie’s life in desperate danger, Pendergast must solve the riddle of the past … before the town of the present goes up in flames.

    Lisa Gardner

  • Pendergast--an always-black-clad pale blond polymath, gaunt yet physically deadly, an FBI agent operating without supervision or reprimand--lurks at the dark, sharp edge of crime fiction protagonists. Kirkus Reviews
  • Preston and Child continue their dominance of the thriller genre with stellar writing and twists that come at a furious pace. Others may try to write like them, but no one can come close. The best in the business deliver another winner. RT Book Reviews on Cold Vengeance
  • This is no dream; it's the authors' best book in years. Pendergast has to rein in his feelings to pay attention to the details, and it's fun to see the role reversal between him and the usually emotional D'Agosta. Not to be missed by either newcomers or die-hard fans. Library Journal (starred review) for Fever Dream
  • “The best Pendergast book yet—a collision between past and present that will leave you breathless.”

    Lee Child

  • “Through myriad shocks, surprises, twists, and turns, the suspense never lets up.”

    Anne Rice

  • “Preston and Child have created a terrific mix of mystery and the unexpected that will keep you reading into the late hours of the night. They promise a great read and they have delivered.”

    Clive Cussler

  • “What Preston and Child are so good at are exemplified here: solid research, clear swift prose and enough twists to fill a jar of pretzels. Sit back, crack open the book, and get ready for the ride of your life.”

    David Baldacci

  • “I’ve read every Pendergast thriller. This is the most suspenseful and most horrifying of them all. This book holds chills you can’t imagine. I’m still shuddering. I promise—you’ll shudder, too.”

    R. L. Stine

  • “Sherlock Holmes fans will relish Preston and Child’s 13th novel featuring eccentric FBI agent Aloysius Pendergast, one of their best in this popular series…easily stands on its own.”

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)

  • “Narrator René Auberjonois is perfection as he portrays the rip-roaring assortment of Preston and Child’s over-the-top characters…A sadistic serial arsonist, a beleaguered sheriff, wizened miners, and ‘old-money’ interests give Auberjonois plenty of opportunities to dazzle. This highly satisfying Pendergast adventure includes an alleged long-lost Sherlock Holmes mystery.”
