did not like it
bookshelves: general-fiction

Abysmal, made even worse because it was written by two great authors who excel in character creation. Reads like the first draft of an amateur's first novel. Nothing but worn out cliches, bad characters, campy villians--a Chinese "ninja" assassin whose weapon of choice is guitar picks attached to his fingers and who sings and plays the blues before he kills you. Avoid at all cost and wait for the next Pendergast, which hopefully the don't screw up as badly.
