This book was really good, the story was very interesting and I love the connection to Arthur Conan Doyle. This is one of the best books in the series and I recommend it warmly!

As I never really enjoyed the Helen trilogy was I absolutely thrilled to finally read a Preston and Child book that had a really interesting and entertaining story. I was also glad that Corrie Swanson was back. She's a favorite character and I loved that she had a big part in this book!

Format: Hardcover
Corrie Swanson, Pendergast's protégée, is studying at the John Jay College of Criminal Justice, where she's trying to put together a thesis proposal. After a couple of rejections, she gets approval for a thesis topic `A Comprehensive Analysis of Perimortem Trauma in the Skeletons of Eight Miners Killed by a Grizzly Bear, from a Historic Colorado Cemetery'. As she writes to Pendergast, she learned about the grizzly bear killings from the diary of Arthur Conan Doyle.

So Corrie Swanson travels to Roaring Fork Colorado, where approval to examine the remains of the miners is not quite as easy to obtain as she'd hoped. Still, Corrie is not one to take no for an answer and her impulsive actions quickly get her into trouble with the police.

Enter Special Agent Aloysius Pendergast to the rescue. Carrie has made an interesting discovery while examining the bones of some of the miners, but at the same time the town's attention is focussed on an arsonist who is burning down occupied multi-million dollar houses. Pendergast is involved in the investigation of the arson attacks while Corrie is keen to investigate the story behind the deaths of the miners. Can there be any connection between the historic deaths, Arthur Conan Doyle, and the present arson attacks and murders? In the meantime, Roaring Fork is snowed in, and it appears that Corrie's life may be in danger.

It's fast moving story, and while I worked out some of the connections, I still had a couple of surprises. While it's possible to read and enjoy this novel as a standalone, it will make more sense to those who are familiar with Aloysius Pendergast from the previous 12 novels in the series. While I didn't enjoy White Fire as much as some of the earlier novels I still find Special Agent Aloysius Pendergast intriguing. An enjoyable escapist read.

Their best book yet - I loved it. I especially liked the way the Sherlock Holmes story was incorporated into the narrative. Being English Ioved the English references - so nice to see in an American book. Well done Preston and Child - yet another brilliant book, I have read all the others and look forward to the next.

After reading their first book, which I did not like, it was suggested to me that their later books got progressively better. This is true, and I did not have to drive myself to finish this one, which I found entertaining. One of the most enjoyable things was a pastiche Conan Doyle/Sherlock Holmes story, which was convincingly done. Stereotypically however, as in the earlier book, anyone with wealth or position (except the eccentric FBI agent) was a very regrettable human being. I would like to use this opportunity appeal to the authors to give us a future book with a character who is a loveable, sharp-witted, and sternly moral billionaire. I have met a few, so they do exist.

I have read all in this series and enjoyed everyone. The hint of creepiness makes this more than just a murder mystery especially with the snow storms blowing. Linking it to Conan Doyle and oscar Wilde was genious. Thoroughly good read.

I nearly missed this book as it wasn't among my recommendations although I've read all the books by these authors.
My particular favorites are Agent Prentagast series.
This one has to be the best so far, it was very chilling, but at the same time a complete page turner, one that was hard to put down.
I'm now looking forward to another Prentagast story.

I have to admit I am a sucker for Pendergast novels as well as Sherlock Holmes. And without spoiling anything: In this book you can have both. Excellent done and damn fine writing. Highly recommendable.

... But what could have been a decent thriller has been spoiled by the capricious behavior of a twen, who I personally do heavily dislike.

At Roaring Fork, a very pricey ski resort in the mountains of Colorado, which is expanding always more to fulfill the ample request of HiSo villas and "huts" for multi-millionaires up to billionaires and over, a cemetery has recently been excavated to bury the remains of over 100 citizens in an other place. Make room - make room, the development cries!
But in 1876, when Roaring Fork was nothing else but a remote mining camp high in the Rocky Mountains, eleven silver miners were killed, their bodies horribly mutilated, their flesh devoured. It seems to be an attack of a grizzly bear having found its taste for human flesh. Some year after those killings Oscar Wilde went to this miner's camp to speak about poetry and other futile things, to be rewarded by a man with a story so grisly that he rarely spoke about it. But at a dinner in London he met Arthur Conan Doyle, who - after being told the whole story, seems to be very sick...

And here enters the cause of my personal aversion for large parts of this oh so well started thriller: Aspiring forensic pathologist Corrie Swanson goes from N.Y of all places properly to Roaring Fork to study these bones. Because she wants to win a price! And she is behaving like she is never willing to enter in criminal investigation at any time in the future - she breaks EVERY rule and more laws a detective-to-be is told or has to learn on his or her own expense...
She is blackmailing, nosey, out of every place, trusting the wrong persons, lying to Pendergast and others and has well earned the prison time she is looking at!
