After i read this book i used it to level my bunk in Iraq. Read Relic, The Ice Limit, or the Brimstone trilogy.

At different times towards the end I would stand up and continue reading. I felt part of it and I smiled when it ended. Wow!
Wheel of Darkness
Another excellent read in a great series.
Another good story
"SWEET". I will read all and any. I look for a story that "takes me away". This was a great read. Could not wait to get back to it. The finish was a mathematical surprise that force a move by me into a series of research and investigation that ended nicely.
Fellas, please continue ur story telling. Thanxs
Maybe the best book in the series
I have read all the Pendergast books so far and this is one of the best. I really like this series. Well written and very good character development. Pendergast is probably one of my all time favorite characters. He reminds me of Sherlock Holmes.
Addicting like all the other Pendergast books.
If you love Pendergast, you won't be disappointed. However, though the authors try hard to make each of their novels stand-alone, I feel you'd miss a lot of the subtleties of the character interactions if you are unfamiliar with their personalities and peccadilloes from at least one or two of the previous novels. For example -- no spoiler, here -- a few specific interactions between Pendergast and Constance are especially worrisome in this novel when you know how out of character his words to her are in a few chapters. If you don't know the characters well to begin with, this behavior will have less impact for you.
That aside, I found the story, the writing and the editing to be very tight, making it a quick, fun, engrossing read. I will read everything these two collaborate on, as I have for many years, but like many, I especially enjoy those works that feature Agent Pendergast.
P.S. I did find three typos, which was uncharacteristic.
