Présentation de l'éditeur

A spectacular new Agent Pendergast thriller from the NEW YORK TIMES bestselling authors.



FBI Special Agent Aloysius Pendergast - recently returned to New York - and Lieutenant Vincent D'Agosta find themselves investigating the murder of a friend when reporter William Smithback and his wife Nora are brutally attacked in their apartment. The assailant is identified by eyewitnesses as their strange, sinister neighbour - a man who, by all accounts, died ten days earlier.



Shunning the official inquiry, Pendergast and D'Agosta undertake their own private - and unorthodox - quest for the truth. Their journey takes them deep into the dark and mysterious underbelly of Manhattan, to a secretive, reclusive cult of Obeah and voodoo which no outsiders have ever survived...

Je suis une fan des histoires de Douglas Preston et Lincoln Child, surtout quand il s'agit de l'agent Pendergast et je ne me formalise pas des histoires acadabrantes qu'ils nous concoctent mais là désolée non! On suit péniblement une enquête qui s'annonce laborieuse puisque nos amis sont à la recherche d'un sombre assassin mais pas de chance il était "déjà mort" au moment des faits, ils partent ensuite se promener dans une non moins sombre partie de Manhattan "la Ville", brrr! Ils font du vaudou mais est- ce vraiment du vaudou?? Suspense...!on tourne en rond TRES longtemps et badaboum, notre agent préféré du FBI trouve d'un coup la solution, bien sûr nous on n'a rien compris, on s'était un peu assoupis, mais chut!!! Je ne vais pas tout dévoiler!!! C'est peu dire que je m'attendais à franchement mieux ....

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Histoire un peu fade 7 novembre 2011
Par M. Jerome Milac VOIX VINE
Format:Poche|Achat vérifié
Je suis un grand fan des livres de Preston & Child et un inconditionnel des aventures de Pendergast. Néanmoins, en dépit d'un récit parfaitement écrit, l'histoire manque de substance. Pas de rebondissement, des évènements prévisibles, et un sentiment de copier/coller avec d'autres livres sur Pendergast et D'Agosta. Ce livre me donne l'impression, d'un livre alimentaire.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Simply Not as Good as the Earlier Pendergast Novels 15 juin 2009
Par Thriller Lover - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
I'm a fan of the "Agent Pendergast" novels by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child, but the last few entries in the series have been less than stellar. While CEMETERY DANCE is a readable effort, it is ultimately a disappointment.

I think the major flaw of this series is that the only really interesting character is the central one, FBI Special Agent Pendergast. Unfortunately, Pendergast plays a relatively small role in CEMETERY DANCE. Much of the book is instead devoted to familiar but ultimately two-dimensional characters like Vincent D'Agosta (the hot-headed Watson to Pendergast's Holmes) and Nora Kelly (who mainly plays the victim role here).

The plot is more silly than interesting (voodoo and zombies play a key role) and doesn't seem to move forward with the rapid-fire intensity that made the earlier Pendergast books so successful. The flat, cartoonish characterization also dampens the suspense. In the end, there are too many action scenes, and not enough character development. The result is a repititive read that didn't really engage me.

In short, CEMETERY DANCE is a pretty minor effort -- enjoyable enough, but not worth your valuable reading time. If you've never read Preston & Child before, my advice is to read RELIC, BRIMSTONE, CABINET OF CURIOSITIES or STILL LIFE WITH CROWS instead. They are far superior to this middling effort.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Agent Pendergast rides again 29 mai 2009
Par Nancy O - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
I've decided that I'm going to designate this book as a "ripping good yarn" because, by golly, that's what it is. This is one of those books where you just have to say to yourself, okay, this is totally escape reading and it's so far-fetched that it can't possibly ever be true. Once you get past that hurdle, then you can do what the authors intended for you to do: sit back, relax, and have fun with it. If you can't do that, then move along, because this book is definitely not for you. Literary snobs need not apply.

I enjoy "ripping good yarns" (aka escape fiction) once in a while, especially from these two authors both together and independently. I especially enjoy the Agent Pendergast series, which I've been following since he first came out of Preston and Child's collective imaginations. He's an enigma and I like enigmas. I've read all of these stories; I've pre-ordered or bought each one as soon as I heard of its release, and I happen to like them. I am a Pendergast junkie.

I absolutely cannot tell you much, because of the plot twists in this book. To tell is to ruin. The book opens with the murder of an old friend from other books in the series (whose name I will not divulge here -- but if you're a Preston and Child follower, you'll be a bit sad). The identity of the murderer is not in doubt -- it was one Colin Fearing, who lived in the same building, and was caught on tape at the building at the time of the murder. Several people recognized him. The only problem is that Colin Fearing was dead at the time the murder was committed -- his body had been even been identified by a relative. So...enter Agent Pendergast, who was a very good friend to the murder victim, and another recurring character, Lt. Vince D'Agosta of the NYPD. What begins as a bizarre case of murder gets even more bizarre as the investigation takes our heroes into the bizarro world of religious animal sacrifice and voodoo. But when a second killing occurs at the hand of another dead person, it just gets very weird, and their efforts to find the killer puts Pendergast and his pals in a very dangerous situation where their very lives are at stake.

This book has it all...the supernatural, mystery, suspense...that is the hallmark of the writing of Preston and Child. There are plot twists that you won't see coming (or at least I didn't), and it's generally a very fun novel with quite a bit of action.

Yes, it's a bit unbelievable, and it's a bit over the top in some spots, but the authors managed to grab me from the start and I didn't stop until I was finished. I think you'd want to read the other Pendergast novels rather than making this your first foray into the minds of these two authors. This book was much better than the last one -- Wheel of Darkness -- and I hope there are many more Pendergast novels in their futures.

I'd recommend this book to people who enjoy fun escape fiction or to those who like a supernatural cast to their mysteries. These two authors are very good at their craft and now I'll just wait patiently until the next installment arrives -- sigh --

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The dance of death. 12 mai 2009
Par Marcus A. Lewis - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
The first review is always a tough one to follow, but I'll do my best. I have been anticipating this book for more than a year and the wait was worth it. Once again the authors deliver one of those creepy tales set in contemporary New York City. I particularly like the way they always center their plots around the Museum of Natural History because it can be a scary place even on a good day. Special Agent Pendergast returns in his role as a modern-day Sherlock Holmes. He speaks very little, but he takes everything in. His Aunt Cordelia also returns and never fails to send chills down my spine. The inciting incident is shocking, but I don't think I'd want you to know what it is up front. It's difficult to see a recurring character die, especially one who is this likable. If you follow the series you will not be disappointed with the latest installment. And if you are a "newby" you'll want to go back and read the previous books. Either way, enjoy!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Dance of Joy 26 mai 2009
Par C. Irish - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
When I see a new Pendergast Novel by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child, my heart gets all a flutter. Nothing could brighten my day more then carrying it on home and cracking it open. This is my favorite series.

In Cemetary Dance, there is some bad mojo in the way of murderous zombies, terrorizing New York and FBI Special Agent A. Pendergast and fearless Lt. Vinnie D'Agosta, are on the case in the ninth book of the series. This story is a gristly gem if you like late night visits to the cemetary, sprinkled with some voo doo, and bloody zombiis. Personally, for me, it doesn't get any better then that.

Cemetary Dance has the great characters that make up this series and some new ones such as Monsieur Bertin, Pendergast's former tutor from New Orleans who is an expert at identifying certain religious practices.

I think all of the Pendergast novels can be read as stand alone stories, so if you are new to these guys, take the plunge. If you enjoy reading Cemetary Dance, then you are lucky that you have the other eight to read. Brimestone and Cabinet of Curiosities are my favorites. I love the back drop of New York City and all of the atmosphere and the characters. I really enjoy one old researcher that Pendergast relies on whose name is Wren. You can find him amidst his dusty piles of old manuscripts and books down below in the belly of the New York Public Library.

Cemetary Dance is a page turner and a great get away without leaving your livingroom. Lincoln & Childs are masterful story tellers. I always look forward to their books and they are always a delight to read. They can be a little gross and disturbing, but that's half the fun.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Exciting, marvelous read, but a sudden departure from existing storyline 21 juin 2010
Par Hui Nee Chin - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche
I enjoyed this book very much. The story is kind of a blow to readers who have been following the series since Relic, but nevertheless it was an exciting, action-filled book. Having just read the Wheel of Darkness before this, it's great to see Pendergast "back to normal" (see my review for Wheel of Darkness if you're curious). However, this book also seem to be a sudden departure from the previous stories. From Relic to Wheel of Darkness, the stories are smooth-flowing and semi-related, but Cemetery Dance seem to suddenly almost have nothing to do with the previous books in terms of storyline. A very weird turn of events, but does not make this book any less of a good read. Definitely one of my favorite Pendergast books.
