So, the characters are here, Aloysius and Vincent and Constance and the others. The pace is frenetic, and the scene shifts with almost every chapter. The plot is complex, answering some old questions and asking many more new ones. Sadly, though, the most important part is missing, the intangible something that singles out the aloof, mysterious Pendergast and makes him unique. The story may involve the love of Pendergast's life, but ironically the story has no heart. I started skimming early in the book, and never settled into the story at all, a first for this series.

Having read all the Pendergast novels, some twice, I am always thrilled when a new one comes out. It is almost like a trip back home. "Cold Vengence" is no exception.
In this latest novel by Preston and Child I ran into a number of old friends, some I thought to never see again, and resolved several questions from earlier novels.
Aloysius is again on the trail of Helen's killer. As the conspiracy continues to thicken, he learns it was more, and less, than murder. Apparently, Helen and her brother were involved in a post war Nazi plot which continues till the present. After 350+ pages of great reading it appears Pendergast has again been out flanked.
This series reminds me of the old cliffhanger serials I uased to watch at the local theater when I was a kid. I love it!
Agent Pendergast is the detective Sherlock Holmes wishes he (she?) could be.
A work of advice: to get the most of these novels read them chronologically. Although they are all stand-alone, there is a greater impact from reading them in order.
Can't wait for the next one.
