#1 bestselling authors Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child return with their next blockbuster Pendergast novel. Special Agent Pendergast takes on a private case in Exmouth, Massachusetts—a quaint village on the coast north of Salem—to investigate the theft of a valuable wine cellar. He travels to the seaside town with his ward, Constance Greene, where they quickly discover something far more sinister: a bricked-up niche in the wine cellar that holds the remains of a man, tortured and then entombed alive 150 years ago. But why? The puzzle is compounded when they discover a murdered body—covered with mysterious symbols—in the salt marshes behind Exmouth … the place where, legend has it, the real witches of Salem took refuge after fleeing the 1692 witch hunts.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“I’ve read every Pendergast thriller. This is the most suspenseful and most horrifying of them all. This book holds chills you can’t imagine. I’m still shuddering. I promise— you’ll shudder, too.” R. L. Stine, New York Times bestselling author
“It’s like Christmas for lovers of suspense when the words Preston & Child once again appear on a book cover. It’s a truly great Christmas when the main character of that novel is Aloysius X.L. Pendergast. For those who have read these books voraciously, it’s not a surprise to learn that this latest tale is one that will keep you riveted until the very end…Preston & Child continue to make these books the absolute best there is in the suspense realm.” Suspense Magazine
“New readers will be hooked…Die-hard fans will add this to their must-read lists.” Library Journal (starred review)
“The book is entertaining, spiced up with arcane words like “desuetude” and quirky descriptions…An appealingly quirky hero…Pendergast is a modern Sherlock Holmes, albeit one preferring absinthe to cocaine.” Kirkus Reviews
“Rene Auberjonois gives a clear, measured performance as mysterious FBI Special Agent A.X.L…Auberjonois’ crisp tenor carries the story. While minor characters blend together, his main characters have distinct voices. Consistent with the story’s tone, his delivery approaches melodrama but rarely overdoes it. A must for devotees of the series.” AudioFile
“This top-notch addition to the Pendergast series can be read as a stand-alone and is sure to please both old and new fans. It has a multi-layered plot combining historic and present-day mysteries. The first two thirds of the book provide a fine mystery. Then comes a plot twist that is surprising and explosive.” RT Book Reviews (4½ stars)
A mile-a-minute thriller with a deeply entertaining plot and marvelous characters, in a setting that will chill your blood, and not only because it's 10 degrees below zero and covered with snow. My copy is full of crumbs because I couldn't put it down long enough to eat. Diana Gabaldon
