This book is a "two-fer"; a murder mystery wrapped in a disaster on the high seas. Both are developed with precision and detail. The plot moves like an Olympic sprinter! I couldn't wait to resume listening each time I had to stop. It took less than five days to finish, that's how good it is.

If you are an incarnated Preston/Child fan, you are most likely asking yourself: “Is it of the same quality as the Brimstone trilogy?”
The short answer to this question is: Absolutely!
It is yet another unputdownable page-turner from the dynamic Preston/Child duo – that seems to continue to write mega-hits together. In my opinion, they are much better together than when they write solo.
If you listen to this book while commuting to work, please be advised that you will find yourself sitting in the parking lot to hear “just one more chapter” after you have arrived.
This is how a thriller should be.
Your second question might be: “What were they thinking, when they decided NOT to use Scott Brick as the narrator?” In that case, I have more good news: Rene Auberjonois does a tremendous job.
I hope you will enjoy this audio book as much as I did.

Much better than the Diogenes trilogy.
A good threat, Pendergast detecting and a nice link to current (as it was then) theory.
Also no museum!
Well up-to standard. I have listened to other books by these authors and Rene Auberjinois is the best narrator. His voice adds just that extra touch of spookiness. Looking forward to the next in the series
