I finished this one a few weeks ago, and wanted to take my time with my review. When I saw it had finally been published, I anxiously snatched up a copy to read, as having read all the other novels on Agent Pendergast, there was no way I wanted to miss one. But let's get to the basics ...

This story centers around Corrie Swanson, the girl introduced in STILL LIFE OF CROWS, who has now 'grown-up' and is a Junior at some prestigious law school. Corrie is Pendergast's protege, short of anything better word, is attending on his dollar. Wanting to basically create a name for herself, she come across an old mystery that needs to be solved, and she can coup some special achievement at the school at the same time. In the process, she runs into some problems with the authorities, and Pendergast arrives on the scene to help her out. From there, the mystery splits into three, dealing with the suppposed mystery Corrie is working on, a new one that deals with an old hearsay story about Oscar Wilde and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, and a third about a modern day arsonist that is burning homes in the area.

As usual I enjoyed seeing/reading another Pendergast story, but I was a bit let down on this one. Pendergast didn't seem to have the involvement he usually does, meaning he is not the centered character here. I perceived him as being a bit standoffish, and that may be because he is still working on issues/things that happened in the near previous novels. Keeps him human, I guess. With that being said, the usual mystery that comes around that needs Pendergast's assistance in solving, is usually a bit more ... well, unusual. Granted there were details that only he could find out (due to perseverance and money) I just felt a bit let-down.

Overall, the story wasn't bad. It opens more possible stories for Corrie to be intertwined with, though I would like to see more of Pendergast. Maybe he is just starting to get a bit too old and worn-out to use much anymore. ( )

I am thirteen installments into the Pendergast series and I still enjoy every one. I really enjoyed this installment (4 stars, easily) until the ending, which although perhaps historically accurate, was a bit of a stretch and too convenient.

The denouement actually made Pendergast’s trip to England unnecessary since it really didn’t add to how the crime was solved. I also felt manipulated by a few body switches—meant to make you believe that a main character had died.

I do have a bias toward more supernatural plot elements, so consider that when you read this review.


3 ½ to 4 stars. Points taken off for the ending but moving right on to the next book. Love this series.

White Fire a story that takes place in a very expensive ski village where very wealthy people play in the winter. The situation of a young college student, with a disrespectful attitude researching in the ski village for her college thesis is believable. However, the situations that she gets herself into are not believable coupled with her nasty attitude earns only three stars for this review. A real disappointment compared to the other Agent Pendergast books. ( )

White Fire is the 13th in the Agent Pendergast series, which is mostly thriller but with supernatural overtones, mostly not too much of it, but sometimes more than you'd expect.

I'm not that crazy about his friend Corrie so could have done with less of her, but otherwise, especially the Sherlock Holmes/Doyle and Oscar Wilde connections, were great. ( )
