Blue Labyrinth by Douglas Preston , Lincoln Child


My Review

Father and son estranged.
Death literally comes knocking on Special Agent Aloysius Pendergast’s door.
Sins of fathers and Ancestors take you into a vortex of intrigue, mystery, and adventure.
Pendergast has two sons, twins, opposite of each other in behaviour, one in particular has great importance in this tale.
This is another chapter in the adventures and thrills that ruminate around Pendergast brought to you by two capable authors Douglas Preston and Lincoln child.
A thriller than one can read without any prior knowledge of the world that has evolved around the main protagonist since his debut in The Relic.

Pendergast finds himself lured to godforsaken places in search of answers.
This tale now has me wanting to read his first time walking into the readers home in The Relic, one that had been waiting on the shelf for some time, waiting for a needed push to be read soon.

This has everything you want from a thriller of this kind, laden with memorable characters and good writing.
The tale will have you in, fully in the quest for truth and answers, with vengeance revenge and discoveries running their course, you are in for a treat in this compelling read.


“His record of arrests made and convictions obtained. Impressive. Very impressive indeed.”
“The statistic that I found most interesting was the number of his perps who died in the process of being apprehended.”
Angler searched for this statistic, found it, raised his eyebrows in surprise. Then he continued his perusal. “I see that Pendergast has almost as many official censures as he has commendations.”
“My friends in the Bureau say he’s controversial. A lone wolf. He’s independently wealthy, takes a salary of one dollar a year just to keep things official. In recent years the upper echelons of the FBI have tended to take a hands-off approach, given his success rate, so long as he doesn’t do anything too egregious. He appears to have at least one powerful, invisible friend high up in the Bureau- maybe more.”
“Hmmm.” More turning of index cards. “A stint in the special forces. What’d he do?”
“Classified. All I learned was that he earned several medals for bravery under fire and completing certain high-value covert actions.”
