Pendergast and Lt. Vincent D’Agosta are reunited when the daughter of a billionaire tech giant is found murdered. Grace Ozmian’s body has been found, but her head is missing. It would appear no mere mortal has killed the woman, and that she is only the first of people to be brutally murdered and beheaded. With a seemingly invincible killer, or killers, on the loose, Pendergast and D’Agosta try to solve the case before the city erupts in panic. I love Preston and Child, I only like Pendergast. While the storylines are always exciting and entertaining, I find Pendergast to be a bit of a windbag. Maybe a book or two that doesn’t feature the FBI whiz?
