The next in the Agent Pendergast series and another excellent suspense-filled thriller.
Cults, voodoo and magic and murder all intertwine to create a gut-wrenching, chilling novel. These novels all stand alone, without the need to know the characters in depth, but once you’ve read one you’ll be hooked.
FBI Special Agent Aloysius Pendergast - recently returned to New York - and Lieutenant Vincent D'Agosta find themselves investigating the murder of a friend when reporter William Smithback and his wife Nora are brutally attacked in their apartment. The assailant is identified by eyewitnesses as their strange, sinister neighbour - a man who, by all accounts, died ten days earlier.
