Fever Dream

Aloysius Pendergast is back. Pendergast has spent the last 12 years believing his wife has died after being attacked by a lion. A tragic accident. Now years later while examining her gun he realizes the gun was tampered with and loaded with blanks. It wasn't an accident, it was a murder.

Pendergast is now not only upset about his wife's death, he is on the hunt for the people who killed her and the reason they did so. He also learns of the secrets she was keeping from him. Pendergast drags the long suffering Lt. Vincent D'Agosta into the investigation. D'Agosta has his own worries, namely his new relationship with a fellow homicide officer - Captain Hayward.

The book moves through the story at typical Child and Preston pace - quickly with twists and turns. The action goes from the American south to Africa and back. There are people who are involved in the murder, but shouldn't be. Add in a John James Audubon connection, a rogue pharmaceutical company and madness in some of the suspects and the story just flies.

No one delivers suspense in such a deliciously creepy way as these two do. Fever Dream is one of their best.
