Be that as it may, this was not a good book. I don't know what happened to the boys on this one, but they struck out big time. "Jumped the shark" is the only phrase I can think of to describe this book. Pendergast discovers he had a son he didn't know about, and...wait for it!....the boy has an EVIL TWIN. In fact, they grew up in a secret Nazi enclave in South America where the Nazis were carrying out nefarious eugenics experiments on twins, creating a population of slave labor (the "regular" twins) and a population of super smart evil geniuses (the "enhanced" twins).
The whole thing was just ridiculous and banal, totally unoriginal and over-the-top in the extreme. My sincere hope is that this is just a blip on the radar and they will get back to normal in their next Pendergast novel.
Oh how I miss the stand-alones like Riptide, Ice Limit and A Still Life with Crows!
Two Graves explores Helen's past and we meet the people who wanted her dead. I had thought the series had faultered with all the Helen and Pendergast drama, but this book sums it all up and puts to rest the marriage with all of its complications, implications and secrets. For me, the last book, Cold Vengeance, and this one came together and explained the mystery surrounding Helen and ties it up. There are several new twists which are very surprising and makes this reader want to delve into the next novel with high anticipation.
Two Graves starts off interestingly with a series of bizarre murders in New York where the killer allows himself to be video taped walking around in the hotels where he commits his atrocious acts. Pendergast is wallowing in self pity as his beloved Helen has again been kidnapped and he feels he is at fault. Vincent's crime report of the bizarre killings causes Pendergast to snap out of his slump and get to work.
There are some minor plots that involve other characters (an especially good one involving Constance Green) in the series but the main story has Pendergast out to seek revenge against a familiar evil and in turn, he comes face to face with rather bizarre revelations in the process.
This is a book fans will eat up. The 'yea right' factor may rear its head but with the deft hands of Preston and Child it will be ran over and riddled with bullets before you can turn the page to find out what happens next.
I'm hoping with the end of the Helen trilogy, the navel-gazing Pendergast would resume solving crimes that didn't involve him personally, or uncover yet another deeply guarded family secret. However, I know better: while not having read the two releases after White Fire, from reading blurbs I sense Blue Labyrinth again hits close to home.
