Book Review: Fever Dream by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child

The latest book in the Pendergast series by writing duo Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child is the first part of a trilogy that deals with the death of Pendergast’s wife Helen. In Fever Dream, Pendergast discovers that his wife’s death was not an accident and he set outs to find the murderers with the help of Vincent D’Agosta and a reluctant Captain Laura Hayward.

As usual, Douglas and Preston have provided us with a fun and thrilling read. I noticed that our hero Pendergast is different in this book. This Pendergast is much more emotional, unrestrained and at the same time ruthless.  I felt the story lacked a bit of the mystery and surprise of previous efforts but since it’s the start of the trilogy I figure the authors have decided to keep a few shockers for the upcoming books. Fever Dream is an entertaining book but not my favourite of the series.
