Special Agent Pendergast-one of the most original, compelling characters in all of contemporary fiction-returns in Preston and Child's new exhilarating novel
BLUE LABYRINTH
A long-buried family secret has come back to haunt Special Agent Aloysius Pendergast.
It begins with murder. One of Pendergast's most implacable, most feared enemies is found on his doorstep, dead. Pendergast has no idea who is responsible for the killing, or why the body was brought to his home. The mystery has all the hallmarks of the perfect crime, save for an enigmatic clue: a piece of turquoise lodged in the stomach of the deceased.
The gem leads Pendergast to an abandoned mine on the shore of California's Salton Sea, which in turn propels him on a journey of discovery deep into his own family's sinister past. But Pendergast learns there is more at work than a ghastly episode of family history: he is being stalked by a subtle killer bent on vengeance over an ancient transgression. And he soon becomes caught in a wickedly clever plot, which leaves him stricken in mind and body, and propels him toward a reckoning beyond anything he could ever have imagined....

Baker & Taylor
Investigating the murder of a long-time enemy, Aloysius Pendergast journeys to an abandoned California mine only to uncover a dark secret from his family's past and a plot by a vengeful killer.

I admit that I am a great fan of Special Agent Aloysius Pendergast. It goes without saying that these books are best enjoyed as audiobooks due to the great voice of Rene Auberjonois. So as I started listening I became concerned that this might be the last book appearance of agent Pendergast. Further into the book I started thinking that it might be for the best. The plot did not seem to usual the standard. The language, too, and some of the dialogue seemed less refined than usual and I must say I found this to be my greatest disappointment. Nonetheless, I persevered and then as the book was reaching the end I found myself laughing as I visualized the action. I concluded that this was probably what the authors intended, since, as usual, they left the door open for the further adventures of Pendergast and friends. I sincerely hope so.
