The first Preston/Child book I've read. Though I figured out not too far into the story that it's one of a series, the book has no problem standing on it's own. While I now feel the need to read everything these two authors have written together, it's only because I enjoyed the book and the characters so much.

Agent Pendergast is in prison, the museum is under chaos with the opening of a new exciting exhibit, and a madman, Agent Pendergast's brother, is on the loose and must be stopped.

"Cabinet of Curiosities" introduced Constance Greene, then the Diogenes Trilogy begins with "Brimstone," continues with "Dance of Death," and ties everything up with this novel of "The Book of the Dead." I've read all of the books in succession, and this last novel was a great ending to a wonderful, interesting storyline.

As with all of the Pendergast novels, I really enjoyed this one too. However, I did not think it was the best of the series. Since this book is a sequel to Dance of Death and it is very similar too it. I thought too similar. Pendergast didn't really pull anything new out of his hat this time and it was very predictable, which I did not feel his other novels were. That being said, if you enjoyed the rest of the series, you should still enjoy this one too, maybe just not as much as some of the others.

This is by far the best effort of these two authors. The story line flows and leaves you waiting for the next book in this series. Highly recommended!
