Sue Recommends Cold Vengeance by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child
The adventure that began in Fever Dream with FBI agent Aloysius Pendergast and his hunt to discover what really happened to his wife Helen 12 years earlier in Africa, continues with Cold Vengeance, the 11th book in the Pendergast series.
There are many twists and turns as the conspiracy is slowly revealed through the surprising information revealed by his brother-in-law, Judson Esterhazy, as he tries to kill Pendergast in Scotland and the special agent's relentless, and of course, unconventional investigation.
It would be best to read Fever Dream first to understand what has already occurred in Pendergast's attempt to get to the truth. However, Cold Vengeance does not finish the story but keeps the reader waiting for the next book in the series.
For those of you who hate for a story to end, this trilogy would be a great read. Many of you may be surprised to know that Douglas Preston grew up in Wellesley. SH
