I am a long time fan of Preston and Child, and have eagerly awaited every installment of the Pendergast series. I picked this book up soon after it was published, hoping for another good series from these beloved authors.

It just isn't present in this book. It is an ok book, just didn't measure up to my expectations. I gave 3 stars because I am hoping this is a hiccup in the writers' progress and not a trend.

I put it down after reading halfway !
I found it derivative and formulaic - another tragic, heroic, genius, forced to fight evil. I don't know if I'll pick it back up.
Preston & Child seem to be "jumping on the bandwagon"!
