Publisher's Summary

William Smithback, a New York Times reporter, and his wife Nora Kelly, a Museum of Natural History archeologist, are brutally attacked in their apartment on the Upper West side of Manhattan. Eyewitnesses claim and the security camera confirms the killer seen leaving the building was their strange, sinister neighbor - a man who, by all reports, was already dead. Captain Hayward leads the official homocide investigation, while Pendergast, D'Agosta, and Nora undertake a private quest for the truth. Their serpentine journey takes them into a part of Manhattan they never imagined could exist: a secretive and deadly hotbed of Obeah, the West Indian Zombii cult of sorcery and magic. And it is here they find their true peril is just beginning.

Not for the faint of heart OR animal lovers

I liked the beginning of this book, however the graphic nature and shear sadness of the animal cruelty really turned me off. Be forewarned some content is hard to take.

Just awful. No shortage of adjectives and adverbs, but big shortage of compelling drama and action. It was trite and boring. I wish I had counted the number of times the words "shambling" and "pate" were repeated. I want my time back.

Classic pendergast

Just like the good old books from before the Diogenes trilogy.
Surprises all through with a nice portion of karma at the end.

To Rene; that's the best Zombie sound bite ever!

Where does Cemetery Dance rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Not bad at all. I really enjoyed the Pendergast series so far as they are easy going and fun. and this one is no exception.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Cemetery Dance?

It's a bit of twister and is set back in New York with some of the series most memorable characters. Another good yarn so no spoilers here just get involved.

What about Rene Auberjonois’s performance did you like?

The impressions from reader Rene on the monster were brilliant. Well done.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The ending. Again it would spoil it if I told you.
