Publisher's Summary

FBI Agent Pendergast has taken Constance on a whirlwind Grand Tour, hoping to give her closure and a sense of the world that she's missed. They head to Tibet, where Pendergast intensively trained in martial arts and spiritual studies. At a remote monastery, they learn that a rare and dangerous artifact the monks have been guarding for generations has been mysteriously stolen. Pendergast agrees to take up the search. The trail leads him and Constance to the maiden voyage of the Queen Victoria, the world's largest and most luxurious passenger liner - and to an Atlantic crossing fraught with terror.

The Wheel of Darkness shines Bright!

The Preston/Douglas team, write the kind of novels you can't put down. Partly due to the fact that, they write from factual historical and well researched information. I deeply enjoy getting myself lost in one of their books. Wheel of Darkness was a great story about good and evil. I was inspired, astounded and totally captured by every word. This book's story took me into a whole new world I'd only read about on the internet and seen on Nationa Geographic. I enjoy the ever continuing storyline, which follows agent Pendergast's like experiences and adventures. I do hope that like with Relic, The Wheel of Darkness makes it to the big screen someday. In my head I have modern actors/actresses of today that I know would be perfect for the part of the characters in this novel. I have explored and experienced schools of thoughts, while reading Wheel of Darkness, that I'd never entertained before. It was a unique journey and very entertaining. It has been enlightening and continues to open my literary mind to worlds I've only dreamed about. I strongly recommend any Douglas/Preston novel. It is a read that will change your reading experience for the better. I won't give away any details of this book. All I can say is try something different, you'll surprise yourself.

Don't Bother with the abridged version.

The abriged version of this audiobook leaves so much to be desired, it is not worth wasting a credit on it. Get the unabridged version much better.
