Agent Pendergast faces his most unexpected challenge yet when bloodless bodies begin to appear in Savannah, GA, in this installment of a #1 New York Times bestselling series.
A fabulous heist:
On the evening of November 24, 1971, D. B. Cooper hijacked Flight 305—Portland to Seattle—with a fake bomb, collected a ransom of $200,000, and then parachuted from the rear of the plane, disappearing into the night…and into history.
A brutal crime steeped in legend and malevolence:
Fifty years later, Agent Pendergast takes on a bizarre and gruesome case: in the ghost-haunted city of Savannah, Georgia, bodies are found with no blood left in their veins—sowing panic and reviving whispered tales of the infamous Savannah Vampire.
A case like no other:
As the mystery rises along with the body count, Pendergast and his partner, Agent Coldmoon, race to understand how—or if—these murders are connected to the only unsolved skyjacking in American history. Together, they uncover not just the answer…but an unearthly evil beyond all imagining.
I have almost every Pendergast book and have loved most of them. This one is quite different. I liked the DB Cooper twist which was brilliant. However, I'm not sure what to think about the "time warp" twist. Still scratching my head on that. It is good to see Pendergast back to sleuthing weird happenings, as in the first few books. I only gave it 3 stars because the narration is very poor. Don't new narrators listen to prior books to try to get the characterizations right? This guy has a nice voice but is way off as far as Contance, who sounds like a poor facsimile of Katherine Hepburn and Agent Coldmoon, who sounds like a whiney teenager. I sure do miss D'Agosta and his great rapport with Pendergast. In this book, there is not much charisma between the characters. The story line, especially toward the end is like Preston and Child are channeling Koontz and King. Really weird, but could get exciting in the future as it is obvious the story will continue.
