With the help of Corrie Swanson, an eighteen-year-old misfit, Pendergast unearths the secrets of this isolated town - from the dark histories of its inhabitants to the darker mysteries hidden in the endless cornfields. And ultimately, as he unravels the local curse and the truth of Medicine Creek's greatest enigma, the Ghost Warrior Massacre of 1865, Pendergast comes face-to-face with the unimaginable evil that lies at the heart of this small town.

Special agent Pendergast is cool!
This book is sooooo gripping. I loved Cabinet of Curiosities and because Special Agent Pendergast was in this book too, I decided to download it. I wasn't disappointed - it was even better than Cabinet of Curiosities and that's saying something! I am now firmly in love with Agent Pendergast and just itching for more. He's such a weird and fascinating character!
The atmospheric music was brilliant, and the ending was especially satisfying - I never saw it coming. Rene Auberjonois (the narrator) is especially good - able to create separate voices for each character in an exceptionally talented way. Just close your eyes and he will transport you to the scary corn fields. This book has one of the best openings I have ever heard. It gripped me from the start and I couldn't stop listening.
I have downloaded lots of books from Audible and this one will go down as one of my all time favourites. A ripping yarn, scary, atmospheric, gripping and delicious.

good book - shame about the presentation
I liked the book itself, but the frequent background music pretty much ruined it for me. Lincoln & Child have got enough talent to create atmosphere with their writing alone, so there is certainly no need for "mood music".
If anything, it threatened to distract from the rythm of the writing and was frequently very, very irritating. While I love audio books, in this case, I'd definitely recommend the paper version.

So Exciting! Like watching a film!
This book is sooooo gripping. I loved Cabinet of Curiosities and because the previous reviewer mentioned Special Agent Pendergast was in this book too, I decided to download it. I wasn't disapointed - it was even better than Cabinet of Curiosities! I am now firmly in love with Agent Pendergast and just itching for more.
The atmospheric music was brilliant, as was the ending.
The narrator is especially good - able to create seperate voices for each character in an exceptionaly talented way.

Pendergast is one of the coolest characters I've run across. He would make a great old world vampire- the ones with class and manners but are spooky as you know what...and he's the good guy! I was drawn into the story from the very start. Nothing was given away or ultra predictable. Great detail and character building. I immediately bought "Cabinet of Curiousities" because I had to hear more from these authors. That book was good, but not as good as this one.
