Lincoln Child and Douglas Preston are two of my favorite authors. Their latest addition to the Pendergast series will please fans. Blue Labyrinth is read by Rene Auberjonois. Many readers will recognize Rene Auberjonois’ distinctive voice from Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. In the 14th Pendergast book, we find our hero back on top. He is the main character in Blue Labyrinth and once again we witness his intelligence, wit and cunning. As Constance and Pendergast are talking, there is a knock on the door. Once it is opened, they discover the body of Pendergast’s son. Who could possibly murder Pendergast’s son, who was a formidable opponent? The culprits are leaving a bread crumb trail for Pendergast to follow. But where does it lead…could it be to death?
In Blue Labyrinth, readers get to know a whole new side of Pendergast. The authors break open the mold and allow readers to see the real man and his emotions. Authors Lincoln Child and Douglas Preston bring back characters from previous books and even previous locations. There is what on the surface appears to be a secondary murder/plot; however, the reader soon realizes that the crimes are tied together. One of the differences in this book is the interaction between De’Agosta, Margot and Constance as they attempt to save Pendergast. While I have enjoyed all of the Pendergast novels, this one is my favorite. There is much I would like to comment on, but that is impossible without giving away spoilers. So I will end with this: Pendergast can be and is egotistical, petulant and self-centered, but we all love him and in Blue Labyrinth we see him suffer. Child and Preston have once again raised the bar. I look forward to the next installment.
