Oh how sad. I so looked forward to this book, preordered it even – and it was such a huge disappointment to me. Seriously, seriously disappointed. I fell in love with Preston & Child because of the archeology and mystery that flows through their writing. This was a boring crime drama book that I cared nothing about. I could give a rat’s ass about Helen, Pendergast’s wife. I want the mystery, the strangeness, the fun of their other books. I can’t remember the last time I was this disappointed in an author.
For a CRIME DRAMA, the book was good – had all the excitement, shoot outs, etc. Then, of course, they had an ending to lead into the next book – a book I’m doubting I will read because it will be more of this theme. Where are the men who wrote “Relic”? Sigh.
I know it is silly, but I almost feel betrayed.
