The thrillers of Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child "stand head and shoulders above their rivals" (Publishers Weekly). Preston and Child's Relic and The Cabinet of Curiosities were chosen by readers in a National Public Radio poll as being among the one hundred greatest thrillers ever written, and Relic was made into a number-one box office hit movie. They are coauthors of the famed Pendergast series and their recent novels include Fever Dream, Cold Vengeance, Two Graves, and Gideon's Corpse. Preston's acclaimed nonfiction book, The Monster of Florence, is being made into a movie starring George Clooney. Lincoln Child is a former book editor who has published five novels of his own, including the huge bestseller Deep Storm.

  • "A gripping, action-packed page-turner . . . a tantalizing, ominous twist at the end." (Publishers Weekly).

  • "Intense and shocking....Every story thread thrills, and the novel seems too short, despite the large page count. Readers will want to see Pendergast and his friends again quickly." (Library Journal).

  • "Gripping . . . action-packed." (New York Daily News).
