Once again, Preston and Child delivered a throughly entertaining Pendergast novel. I think the plot is rather unique, and I love how they weave Audobon into the narrative. It wasn't long after reading the book that I realized how many Audobon prints my mother had hanging in our house - something I'd never realized before. I started to recognize Audobons wherever I'd see them and understand just how talented he is. I even vought a 1st edition Audobon lithograph for my mom.
Anyway I loved this book not just for the incredible story but also for introducing meto Audobon.
