This book is the final part of the trilogy between Agent Prendergast and his brother Diogenes. It is well written and there is much more to the story line. An exhibit of the opening of an Egyptian tomb at the New York Museum provides the backdrop. Recommended.

This is a highly enjoyable book and exciting conclusion to a trilogy. One young? character certainly comes into her own here and looks to be the focus of the next book, Wheel of Darkness. Preston and Child are top rate writers of suspense. They are masters of writing highly descriptive paragraphs that don't bog down the flow of the narrative but rather intensifies the suspense. The cat and mouse chase in Florence was page turning stuff.
Poor New York Museum! How many strange occurences and deaths can the museum survive? Wheel of Darkness does look to take the setting far away from New York.
The word from the authors at the end was interesting: a nice way to summarise their novels so far and give a reminder of who appeared where. For instance, I had forgotten that Eli Glinn appeared in The Ice Limit. Keep turning the pages past the Wheel of Darkness sample to find a little addition by Corrie Swanson. And the website's real too! Does this mean that Corrie will get caught up in a future New York mystery along with Smithback, D'Agosta and friends?
Looking forward to more about Penderghast or any other interesting characters the duo can dream up.

Very good book as always from these two. Great continuation from the "dance of death". Good ending too after a major roller coaster ride.
