Staff Reviews

In the duo's latest thriller, FBI Special agent Pendergast is pursuing the theft of an ancient Tibetan relic across the high seas on board the maiden voyage of the world's largest ocean liner. It is the perfect setting for a homicidal maniac on the loose, and for Pendergast to use his unique investigatory skills. 

— From Deborah


A luxury ocean liner on its maiden voyage across the North Atlantic, awash in wealth and decadence...
An ancient Tibetan box, its contents unknown, sealed with a terrifying warning...
An FBI agent destined to confront what he fears most--himself...

About the Author

The thrillers of Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child "stand head and shoulders above their rivals" (Publishers Weekly). Preston and Child's Relic and The Cabinet of Curiosities were chosen by readers in a National Public Radio poll as being among the one hundred greatest thrillers ever written, and Relic was made into a number-one box office hit movie. They are coauthors of the famed Pendergast series and their recent novels include Fever Dream, Cold Vengeance, Two Graves, and Gideon's Corpse. In addition to his novels, Preston writes about archaeology for the New Yorker and Smithsonian magazines. Lincoln Child is a former book editor who has published five novels of his own, including the huge bestseller Deep Storm.

Praise For…

One of the best thrillers of the year; essential for all popular fiction collections."—Library Journal (starred review)

"Douglas Preston and Lincold Child are the dynamic duo of supernatural thrillers...The Wheel of Darkness is a fast, fun an action-filled adventure."—Chicago Sun-Times

"The exciting eighth thriller from bestsellers Preston and Child. This entry shows why the authors stand head and shoulders above their rivals."—Publishers Weekly
