This was my first Preston/Child book, and I loved it. Deep, dark, spooky... somehow implausible, yet I found that the next time I was in the Carnegie Museum of Art and Natural History, I was eyeballing dark corridors and elevators a little more closely than before...

Pendergast is a very real character, as are almost all of the folk who populate this novel. Yeah, there are a few whose deaths inspire cheers, but overall, you're pulling for the good guys to win.

Make sure you check out Reliquary, the sequel, once you've read this one.
