Sad it’s over 😢

What can I say, I love the Pendergast series. I’m really thrilled that the authors brought back to life the brother of Special Agent Pendergast, Diogenes Pendergast, who is just too fascinating to despise. I am always glad to find myself in that strange Riverside mansion having jasmine tea with Constance and Aloysius.

Another great read!

I absolutely hate the fact that I read so fast. Finished this in two days. Now I have to wait for however long for the next one to come out to find out what happens. I will say though it would of been interesting to see where Constance and Diogenes would of gone. Maybe the next one will include a little bit more of D’Agosta.

Not up to the standard

The first half of the book or so doesn't even have Pendergast really, it's a dry recitation of a cliched race. There are several uncharacteristic plot glitches where things don't fit together.

For example - at one point the car is left at a specific location. Much later PEndergast returns - and the car has somehow mysteriously made its way back home. It’s location would have been key to his investigations. Very sloppy.

The ending is also a letdown.

Coming off of Crimson Shore this was quite a letdown.
