The first novel in the trilogy once again pairs together reader favorites Special Agent Pendergast and Officer D'Agosta, who must work together to solve an apparently unsolvable series of grisly murders. Readers will enjoy following the two characters as they work to unravel a mystery that will ultimately lead them to Italy and bring them face-to-face with a most unexpected adversary.
"Dance of Death:"
Though only hinted at in "Brimstone," Diogenes--nefarious brother of Pendergast--is properly introduced in "Dance of Death." The protagonists learn of a sinister though mysterious plot by Diogenes that must be stopped at all costs, and could very well destroy our brave heroes in the process. The cliffhanger ending absolutely begs the reader to immediately read the next book.
"The Book of the Dead:"
Picking up where "Dance of the Death" leaves off, "The Book of the Dead" reveals an even more terrible plan by Diogenes to wreak havoc than the protagonists ever realized. Add to the mix a cursed Egyptian tomb, and an unhinged Constance Greene, and the reader will encounter a perfect storm of thoughtful entertainment.
There is so much to like about the Diogenes trilogy, from its breakneck pace, to the excellent characters, to the superb quality of writing, to its evocation of mood, that any negatives are small and do little to detract from the quality of the story. While I found some of the plot threads to ultimately go nowhere, the novels more than make up for any shortcomings and should not be missed by any fan of the genre.
-nice to have all three novels packaged together for one low price
-delves into the character and background of both Pendergast and Constance
-incredibly interesting locales
-excellent quality of writing with a pronounced urbane flair
-evokes some really creepy moods
-some plot threads ultimately seem to go nowhere
That is why the "Wife Returns From The Dead' books were so disappointing. Didn't read "Graves" nor do I intend to - the first two were enough, The "aura" was gone. However, I reread this triology books, as well as all the earlier Pendegast books, as often as I possibly can.
It is my hope that Preston and Childs will make peace twith the "Girl They Brought To The Prom" and bring us back into the REAL mansion in upper Manhattan!!
