Disappointed - a weak showing

I am a very loyal fan of this series. The authors missed an excellent opportunity to take into a fresh direction. I thought Pendergast and Constance made an excellent team in the last novel. In this novel they are apart. Did Pendergast learn nothing on the boat? Did he learn nothing in the pursuit? Apparently not, so very unlike him. Too many things jelly-side down.

I really don't know what to feel. I am said that the strongest part of the novel was narration. This is a rare miss. Read because you have to.

Fearful there is no where to go for the series.

I have always enjoyed the Pendergast series. However, I have grown tired of the cliffhanger endings. I find that I frequently have to go back to the previous book in an effort to understand why all this "stuff" is happening to Pendergast or Constance and now Proctor. The cloudy convoluted plots and the referenced past deeds are tiring.
Just give Pendergast cases to show his brilliance and close the door (for Pendergast it is doors) on the past. Leave Constance and her son (and undoubtedly the child she will now be carrying) with the monks!!!
