Yesterday, Special Agent Pendergast still mourned the loss of his beloved wife, Helen, who died in a tragic accident in Africa twelve years ago.

Tomorrow, he will learn her most guarded secrets, leaving him to wonder: Who was the woman I married? Why was she murdered? And, above all . . . Who murdered her?


Revenge is not sweet: It is essential.

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.

Fever Dream is a dream

The thrillers of Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child "stand head and shoulders above their rivals" (Publishers Weekly).

They are coauthors of the famed Pendergast series and their recent novels include Fever Dream, Cold Vengeance, Two Graves, and Gideon's Corpse. In addition to his novels, Preston writes about archaeology for the New Yorker and Smithsonian magazines.
