White Fire

By Douglas Preston, Lincoln Child (Audiobook, 2013)
Past and present collide in Preston and Child's most thrilling novel ever . . .

WHITE FIRE

Special Agent Pendergast arrives at an exclusive Colorado ski resort to rescue his protégée, Corrie Swanson, from serious trouble with the law. His sudden appearance coincides with the first attack of a murderous arsonist who--with brutal precision--begins burning down multimillion-dollar mansions with the families locked inside. After springing Corrie from jail, Pendergast learns she made a discovery while examining the bones of several miners who were killed 150 years earlier by a rogue grizzly bear. Her finding is so astonishing that it, even more than the arsonist, threatens the resort's very existence.

Drawn deeper into the investigation, Pendergast uncovers a mysterious connection between the dead miners and a fabled, long-lost Sherlock Holmes story--one that might just offer the key to the modern day killings as well.

Now, with the ski resort snowed in and under savage attack--and Corrie's life suddenly in grave danger--Pendergast must solve the enigma of the past before the town of the present goes up in flames.

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. Coauthors of the famed Pendergast series, Preston and Child are also the authors of Fever Dream, Cold Vengeance, and Gideon's Sword. 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 four novels of his own, including the huge bestseller Deep Storm.

  • WHITE FIRE by Preston and Child

  • "The names Preston & Child on the cover of a book promise a unique reading experience unlike any other, and Two Graves delivers the high thrills one expects from the two masters...authors Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child have delivered another exceptional book....The gothic atmosphere that oozes from the pages of Two Graves will envelop the reader in a totally unique experience...The mystery tantalizes, and the shocks throughout the narrative are like bolts of lightning." (The Washington Post on Two Graves).

  • "Two Graves provides readers exactly what they would expect from a Preston and Child novel --- thrills, high adventure, treacherous plot twists and well-researched scientific intrigue. The story is never predictable, and Pendergast is a multi-layered personality who keeps you guessing throughout." (Bookreporter.com on Two Graves).


  • "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
    ).

  • "Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child are, each in his own right, bestselling authors, but put them together and you get pure genius. At least I think so... I think, like me, you will be enthralled by the book, and intrigued by the inscrutable, cunning and insightful Pendergast."
    (The Daily Gleaner 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).

  • "They have grown steadily darker and more elegantly written...together they reach an entirely different level, achieving a stylistic grace and thematic resonance neither has so far matched alone. This may be the best of the Pendergast novels" (Booklist (starred review) for Fever Dream).

  • "Up the emotional ante considerably...brilliant and eccentric...one of the best in the series. Once again, the bestselling authors show they have few peers at creating taut scenes of suspense."  (Publishers Weekly (starred review) for Fever Dream).

  • "[Preston and Child are] still going strong . . . Such is the talent of our authors that we happily follow their characters . . . all over the globe, from the moors of Scotland to the loony bins of New York City; the recipe is mixed well with a dash of assassins here and a soupcon of Nazis there, a couple of traitors and some really fascinating secondary characters . . . Cold Vengeance is a hot hell of a fun read."
