My Review of Two Graves by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child

I have a confession to make right from the start; I was more interested in the Constance Green story than I was in Corrie Swanson’s or Special Agent Pendergast’s, and by association, Detective D’Agosta. Suffice it to say, however, it was an enjoyable read throughout with Nazi’s, kidnapping, deceit, murder, travel, reunions, intrigue, and surprises.graves

Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child combine for an emotional and compelling tale surrounding one of their most successful characters, Aloysius Pendergast, as he strives to understand his wife’s fraud, and the world from which she came prior to meeting and falling in love with him. Along the way there is discovery in many forms as Pendergast inserts himself into Detective D’Agosta’s investigation into the brutal slayings of hotel guests as the police pursue a serial killer. Pendergast follows the lead to the forests of Brazil where he comes face to face with Nazis, secrets, and danger.

Along the way, Corrie Swanson is reunited with someone who has always loved her, and must battle her own mystery to save him, and Dr. Felder goes on a search for evidence that Constance Green is who she says she is, facing his own mystery and danger.

The action in all three stories is intense, but like I said in the beginning the Constance Green mystery is, to me, the most fascinating one as she seems to have lived a hundred or so years with an enigmatic past, present, and future.

The book will catch your attention and entertain you to the end. My only regret is that it did end and I now have to wait for Preston and Child to write another Pendergast mystery. *sigh*
