A fun read and you should read the prequel, [b:Relic|67035|Relic (Pendergast, #1)|Douglas Preston|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1389576748l/67035._SY75_.jpg|23046] before this. The mystery happens below the streets of Manhattan. I find Pendergast early books "strange" with horror feel than the recent ones... in a good way. ( )

This is the second book in the Special Agent Pendergast series and begins 18 months after the main events in the novel 'Relic'. I'll note that the epilogue in the first book which took place 6 months after the main events turns out to be quite a clue and material to this story. Although there are some new characters, several of the surviving main characters from the prior book are here again. The fact that I already knew some of the people here made this book easy to dive into, and overall I consider this a better book than the first and despite what I say next I enjoyed reading this story. Parts of this are a hard to put the book down page turner, especially the latter part of the book where the action is almost non-stop.

Like I said about the prior book, much of this one could also be an X-Files episode of monster of the week, although maybe a two-parter would be needed. I learned more about New York City as well. There is something slightly tiresome about these two books. The bosses of various things in these two books generally fall into the bureaucratic idjit class wanting things swept under the rug, don't rattle the cage, look for someone else to blame, get it solved yesterday, etc etc. Only our peeps on the front line have the smarts to take care of things. In the first book the Mayor of New York City takes a small but important place in the events and proves himself to be a smart leader. In this book, 18 months later, the good mayor is out of office.

There are many surprises here and the ending of this really took me by surprise. It almost jumped the shark. Well, they are the storytellers, and I'm just the reader. I need to catch my breath now. ( )

Agree with the Tribune review as this is one follow-up that is every bit as good, or maybe better, than the first. One of the things I enjoy about their books, no matter how out in left field the story might sound as you read it they always do an excellent job of pulling it together and making it believable. The sections about New York below ground are very compelling in the feeling they convey of those who choose to live there. Would recommend this to anyone who enjoys a good thriller. ( )
