it was amazing
Read from December 16 to 30, 2011

I had read all the Pendergast novels up to this one and then for some reason got sidetracked and left the series alone. Then, one day I made a list of what I hadn't read in the series yet and set out to get what I lacked, which turned out to be Dance of Death, The Book of the Dead, and The Wheel of Darkness (yet just now, looking up the series on Fantastic Fiction, I see there are three ore I lack now: Cemetery Dance, Fever Dream, and Cold Vengeance...note to self...seek these out ASAP).
Now that I've digressed...
Dance of Death was a cracking good read, and as I read it, I found I couldn't put it down. I love the character or Special Agent Pendergast, and Preston & Child really ratchet the stakes high in this book. There are some surprising twists and turns, that serve to drag you along at what turns into a breakneck pace by the last few chapters. I couldn't turn the pages fast enough.
If you've not read any of the Pendergast books, go back to the beginning and start with Relic and go from there. Trust me, you won't be disappointed.
