Brimstone --- written by --- Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child. The duo of Preston and Child (don’t they sound more like a law firm than a team of authors) have pulled it off again. For me, they represent a couple of recent discoveries, but not for others. There are reams of reviews of their books on the net. They sure have their followers and I’m to be counted as one of them. Their novels have a distinctly Dan Brownish taste to them. Brimstone, as you might expect, is a novel of diabolically horrific proportions featuring superbly clever Rolls Royce- driving private investigators; doggedly persevering uniformed cops from the NYPD; wicked Counts bent on recovering a priceless heirloom who are certain they can resort to any means, however wicked to recover what the claim is rightfully theirs. Stir in a gorgeous lady cop; a brimstone spouting evangelist; and a desperate newspaper reporter and you’ve got the elements for an exciting, page turning and highly engaging novel. Its a fast read, in parts a breath taking read. And for the more squeamish amongst you, you may want to leave the lights on.

As usual, very well written and very well researched. Not one of their best, though, but Agent Pendergast and company are such a great array of characters that you can almost overlook most flaws

Sounds mor exciting than it odd as it is for a Preston & Child book, this one really drags.
