    I love the Pendergast books, but even for 99cents, it wasn't worth it.
  • Overpriced

    This is a nice short story - but way too short to be worth the price. Half the pages are legalese and advertising for Preston & Child.

    This book is not as long as the description states. It is very short. Half of the book is devoted as a preview of the next Pendergrast novel. Save your .99 and don't bother reading such a short, boring story. I'm very disappointed.
  • Wow! Really good.

    This was kind of a cross between a short story and a novelette. A little longer than a short, maybe a little shorter than a novelette. I sat outside in my carport, smoked a cigar, drank coffee and about after an hour or so, I finished what I would call a good old traditional "ghost story". Very well, written, characters well defined. Beginning, middle, and satisfying end. Real good job.
  • Unhappy Reader, where are the 128 pages?

    Something is very wrong with this Purchase, as it informs the buyer of purchasing a 128 page Short Story..... Where is the last 100 pages? This has left me frustrated, as I was engaged in reading a 128 page Pendergast Short story, but it ended in 20 pages. Negative Experience for me.....poor decision to release this way!
  • Too short

    While I understand it's a short story, it is too short. The ending feels chopped, like there is more that could be there. Otherwise, it feels like a typical Pendergast story, which is a good thing.
  • Deceptive yet entertaining

    Change the price to 9 cents. It's a twenty page ghost story for Pete's sake! Was a fun read though and got me primed for the next Pendergast!

    Not worth the price or pre ordering.
