For twelve years, he believed she died in an accident. Then he was told she’d been murdered. Now, FBI Special Agent Aloysius Pendergast discovers that his beloved wife Helen is alive. But their reunion is cut short when Helen is brazenly abducted before his eyes. And Pendergast is forced to embark on a furious cross-country chase to rescue her. But all this turns out to be mere prologue to a far larger plot: one that unleashes a chillingly, almost supernaturally, adept serial killer on New York City. And Helen has one more surprise in store for Pendergast: a piece of their shared past that makes him the one man most suited to hunting down the killer. His pursuit of the murderer will take Pendergast deep into the trackless forests of South America, to a hidden place where the evil that has blighted both his and Helen’s lives lies in wait, a place where he will learn all too well the truth of the ancient proverb:  Before you embark on a journey of revenge, dig two graves.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Rene AuberJonois’ narration in the latest Pendergast adventure is a magnificent accomplishment. He faces the challenge of a myriad of accents, nationalities, ages, etc. and proves that he is up to the task…AuberJonois is present and on target with every character, fully inhabiting each emotional scene. One cannot imagine a fuller, more nuanced reading of this thriller, which rarely lets the listener relax.” Soundcommentary.com (starred review)
“The mystery tantalizes, and the shocks throughout the narrative are like bolts of lightning. Fans will love the conclusion to the trilogy, and newcomers will seek out the authors’ earlier titles.” Associated Press
“The action is constant and starts with a bang…There is a major plot twist for the series that will intrigue fans and promises a long line of possible books.” RT Book Reviews
“A high-adrenaline…thriller…An intelligent suspense novel.” Publishers Weekly
“Auberjonois masterfully, almost breathlessly, projects the urgency of the action-driven plot while personalizing the heartfelt story. His husky-voiced Pendergast comes across as a man of action with deep emotions. He convincingly portrays the large and diverse cast, reading in a rich American accent for Pendergast and a German accent for the neo-Nazis. Auberjonois sustains the edgy intensity of the story, keeping us riveted, even through some dense descriptive passages. New listeners may want to start with Fever Dream and Cold Vengeance before tackling this conclusion of the trilogy.” Booklist (audio review)
“Auberjonois’ versatile performance matches the ambitious and well-paced plot.” AudioFile
Two Graves provides readers with exactly what they would expect from a Preston and Child novel—thrills, high adventure, treacherous plot twists, and well-researched scientific intrigue. The story is never predictable, and Pendergast is a multi-layered personality who keeps you guessing throughout.” Bookreporter.com
