A New York Times Bestseller
Medicine Creek, Kansas. In a town where nothing changes, where Main Street is a two-block stretch of old and dusty businesses, a ghastly murder has taken place. The unknown victim has been placed in a small clearing in a sea of corn. Within twenty-four hours the sheriff is assuring a flood of reporters and tense residents that this is an isolated death -- until Special Agent Pendergast arrives in the stifling August heat to declare it the work of a serial killer.

The thrillers of Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child "stand head and shoulders above their rivals" (Publisher's Weekly). Coauthors of the famed Pendergast series, their books Relic and The Cabinet of Curiosities were chosen by readers in a National Public Radio poll as being among the 100 greatest thrillers ever written, and Relic was made into a number one box office hit movie. They are also the authors of Fever Dream, Cold Vengeance and Gideon's Sword. Preston's acclaimed nonfiction book, The Monster of Florence, is being made into a movie starring George Clooney. Lincoln Child is a former book editor who has published four novels of his own, including the huge bestseller Deep Storm. The authors welcome e-mail from their readers; you can visit their website at www.prestonchild.com.From AudioFile:
This production would have been better without the intrusion of the occasional (and too loud) underlying music, which is made completely unnecessary by René Auberjonois's fine performance. He breathes believability into the very different main characters, troubled 18-year-old Corrie Swanson and the older, odd Special Agent Pendergrast. Together they investigate the ritual murders of several people in a Kansas town. The story rushes to a disturbing conclusion, the plot filled with turns along the way. The abridgment has left a story both coherent and thrilling. S.D. 2004 Audie Award Finalist © AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
