Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Preston & Child once again bring A.X.L. Pendergast to life and offer up a host of thrills, heart-pumping action, and an intricate plot that pits a vengeful killer against (still) the most interesting character in fiction. Suspense Magazine on Blue Labyrinth
Fast-moving, sophisticated and bursting with surprises... If you're willing to surrender to Preston and Child's fiendish imaginations, you might devour the Pendergast books the way kids do Halloween candy...There's nothing else like them. The Washington Post on Blue Labyrinth
These dynamic authors' best thriller to date. White Fire was one of Library Journal's Top 10 Thrillers of 2013
The best Pendergast book yet - a collision between past and present that will leave you breathless. Lee Child on White Fire
A mile-a-minute thriller with a deeply entertaining plot and marvelous characters, in a setting that will chill your blood, and not only because it's 10 degrees below zero and covered with snow. My copy is full of crumbs because I couldn't put it down long enough to eat. Diana Gabaldon on White Fire
New readers will be hooked...Die-hard fans will add this to their must-read lists. Library Journal (Starred Review) of Crimson Shore - November 2015 LibraryReads Pick
It's like Christmas for lovers of suspense when the words Preston & Child once again appear on a book cover. It's a truly great Christmas when the main character of that novel is Aloysius X.L. Pendergast. For those who have read these books voraciously, it's not a surprise to learn that this latest tale is one that will keep you riveted until the very end...Preston & Child continue to make these books the absolute best there is in the suspense realm. Suspense Magazine on Crimson Shore
The latest novel in Preston & Child's Pendergast series picks up from the cliffhanger-ending of CRIMSON SHORE and doesn't let up. The authors keep readers guessing... The crisp writing and exemplary stories are still in abundance in this consistently exciting and never predictable series. Jeff Ayers, Associated Press
"As any reader of suspense knows, Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child write a series of books featuring one of the best characters in the history of suspense literature: Aloysius Pendergast. [THE OBSIDIAN CHAMBER is] an excellent story by these two unbelievably talented authors. A page-turner, a deluxe suspense, a perfect mystery--Preston & Child remain the best of the best and never let their huge fan base down! Suspense Magazine
Rivetingly superb ... great fun ... thriller-writing of the highest order. A lavish, brilliantly conceived puzzle that pieces together neo-gothic plotting with splendidly rich tones. Jon Land, Providence Journal
Keep[s] the excitement meter pegged ... Action-adventure with a macabre, sometimes-fantastical flair. Kirkus Reviews
“Narrator Rene Auberjonois offers his usual cool, unruffled approach to Preston and Child’s sixteenth A.X.L. Pendergast adventure…Auberjonois gets it all just right as one hair-raising escapade follows another and…keeps the improbable suspenseful and the listening entertaining.” AudioFile
