Authors try to emulate William Buckley with ostentatious wordage and technical jargon. Keep a dictionary handy if you want to follow the technical details. Story line is interesting because of the depth of history of the city and the rather unpleasant inhabitants, past and present.
This is a great, long read. Excellent development and slow, creepy suspense. However, I found the final chapter with the explanation and wrapping up to be too easy and not as good as the rest of the book.
Preston and Child at the top of their game, one of the best of the Pendergast series.
One of my favorites in the series and just a favorite period. It is suspenseful and creepy. A very good summer read.
Spine grippingly good ;) (You'll know what I mean when you read it)
Educational, but very grotesque!!!
It was okay but I didn't think it was one of Preston and Child's best
Simply awful... the characters are cliched and cartoonish (though saying that insults cartoons). The plot is okay, but the poor writing overwhelms the story.
One of my favorites in this series, this book is typical of Preston & Child: you'll be wondering right until the end if the terror is human or paranormal.
If you enjoyed Relic, you'll probably enjoy this one too.
