Revenge is not sweet: it is essential. Special Agent Pendergast is putting to rest long-ignored possessions reminiscent of his wife Helen’s tragic death, only to make a stunning—and dreadful—discovery. Helen had been mauled by an unusually large and vicious lion while they were big game hunting in Africa. But now, Pendergast learns that her rifle—her only protection from the beast—had been deliberately loaded with blanks. Who could have wanted Helen dead ... and why? With Lieutenant Vincent D’Agosta’s assistance, Pendergast embarks on a quest to uncover the mystery of his wife’s murder. It is a journey that sends him deep into her past—where he learns much that Helen herself had wished to keep hidden. As Pendergast probes more deeply into the riddle—the answer to which is revealed in a night of shocking violence, deep in the Louisiana bayou—he finds himself faced with an even greater question: Who was the woman he married?

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A calibrated thriller from two masters of the craft.” Barnes & Noble editorial review
[A] suspenseful tale of urban terror...this taut page-turner can only add to the authors' growing fan base. Publishers Weekly on CEMETERY DANCE
Narrator As Pendergast discovers that his beloved wife kept a myriad of secrets, Auberjonois's characterization dramatizes the special agent's confusion over his wife's loyalty. AudioFile
René Auberjonois...lends the proper air of gravitas to his performance. With the underlying story featuring zombies and the undead, it takes the sober Auberjonois to help maintain the credibility of the plot. His sincere delivery is perfect for a strange story that is more than a little creepy. AudioFile Magazine on CEMETERY DANCE
“Once again, the bestselling authors show they have few peers at creating taut scenes of suspense. Their restraint in the book’s early sections make the payoffs all the more compelling.” Publishers Weekly
“Narrator René Auberjonois is equally adept at portraying Pendergast’s upper-crust Southern origins and New York cop Vincent D’Agosta’s brusque directness. With Auberjonois’ consistent narration, the quirky threads of the story...eventually come together to create an intriguing premise. As Pendergast discovers that his beloved wife kept a myriad of secrets, Auberjonois’ characterization dramatizes the special agent’s confusion over his wife’s loyalty.” AudioFile
“This is no dream; it’s the authors’ best book in years...Not to be missed by either newcomers or die-hard fans.” Library Journal
“Readers of previous Pendergast novels will welcome this installment starring the exceedingly peculiar FBI special agent. Stylish, dark, and tense.” Kirkus Reviews
