Publisher's Summary

A long-buried family secret resurfaces when one of Aloysius Pendergast's most implacable enemies shows up on his doorstep as a murdered corpse. The mystery has all the hallmarks of the perfect murder, save for an enigmatic clue: a piece of turquoise lodged in the stomach of the deceased. The gem leads Pendergast to an abandoned mine on the shore of California's desolate Salton Sea, which in turn propels him on a journey of discovery deep into his family's sinister past. But Pendergast learns there is more at work than a ghastly episode of family history: he is soon stalked by a subtle killer bent on vengeance over an ancient transgression. In short order, Pendergast is caught in a wickedly clever plot, which will leave him stricken in mind and body...and may well end with his death.

Twists and Tuns in the Pendergast Family Tree

This novel opens with a surprise on Pendergast's doorstep. This novel explores the Pendergast tree and dig into his history. I liked this aspect. I like that Constance green is back in the picture. The whole series is a modern day Sherlock Holmes series of stories (with many different Watsons). Rene Auberjonis is the long time narrator and does an outstanding performance.

If you have not read any of these novels, you really have a great deal of work ahead of you. I love these novels because they are heavy on thrill and very light on blood and gore. I recommend you read this latest, more of the Pendergast story is always interesting.

Will Pendergast & Constance ever get together?

Where does Blue Labyrinth rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Not a fair question, I have A Lot of audiobooks! Well over 500 just on Audible without counting the ones I have on CDs. I will say this one is probably in my top 100. If I had to get rid of most of my books this one would be a keeper - how's that?


What other book might you compare Blue Labyrinth to and why?

The only other book I would even attempt to compare it to would be White Fire. Pendergast along with his family and friends are in a class all by themselves. You just don't find 100+ year old women who look like they're in their early 20s, or people who can meditate themselves back in time or, or, or... But the thing with this series is the way it is written the listener (me) never says it's too far fetched but buys into it. I think this says a lot about the authors.


Any additional comments?

This was sooo good in my opinion (we all have one!). I just want to know when Pendergast will stop being Constance's guardian and will admit that he loves her as well. I really thought that this would happen in this book, since she has told him of her feelings toward him. In the epilogue after all they went through... Oh well. Maybe one day or maybe not and the writers will just keep the readers wondering. Anyway, I thought it was a great story, I wish I didn't have to wait another WHOLE YEAR for another. Highly recommend this one, it is worth the credit.
