Revue de presse

"The names Preston & Child on the cover of a book promise a unique reading experience unlike any other, and Two Graves delivers the high thrills one expects from the two masters...authors Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child have delivered another exceptional book....The gothic atmosphere that oozes from the pages of Two Graves will envelop the reader in a totally unique experience...The mystery tantalizes, and the shocks throughout the narrative are like bolts of lightning. Fans will love the conclusion to the trilogy, and newcomers will seek out the authors' earlier titles."―The Washington Post

"Pendergast--an always-black-clad pale blond polymath, gaunt yet physically deadly, an FBI agent operating without supervision or reprimand--lurks at the dark, sharp edge of crime fiction protagonists."―Kirkus Reviews

"Preston and Child's high-adrenaline 12th thriller featuring maverick FBI agent Aloysius Pendergast wraps up the trilogy that began with 2010's Fever Dream and continued with 2011's Cold Vengeance with a bang....[an] intelligent suspense novel."―Publishers Weekly

"Two Graves provides readers exactly what they would expect from a Preston and Child novel --- thrills, high adventure, treacherous plot twists and well-researched scientific intrigue.

"Preston & Child have penned another intriguing and thrilling entry in the Pendergast series. Two Graves is never predictable and full of secrets that will please long-time fans and readers of thriller novels alike!"―New Mystery Reader


"A roller coaster ride of a novel....Preston and Child have a knack for writing nail-biting suspense novels. They do an incredible job making the plot complex. It seems as though ten different things happen at once, and then they masterfully tie everything together in a stunning finish."―Sacramento Book Review

Présentation de l'éditeur

NEW YORK TIMES bestselling authors return with another page-turning adventure thriller.

'Before you embark on a journey of revenge, first dig two graves' Confucius

In the 91 hours following the brutal kidnapping of his wife, FBI agent Pendergast does everything in his power to find her. But it's too late. And a shattered Pendergast retreats to his New York home where he shuts the world out.

Then a string of bizarre murders erupt in Manhattan's hotels, and Pendergast realises they're a deadly message from the kidnappers. Filled anew with vengeful fury, he tracks them to the dark forests of South America, where he is faced with an old evil that threatens the world as we know it...

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Deux tombes, deux auteurs. Le compte est bon 13 janvier 2013
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
Le samedi 22 décembre, à l'aube d'une journée morne et triste de l'Avent, quinze mois et quelques jours après avoir dévoré le précédent opus des aventures de l'agent Pendergast, j'ai eu l'ineffable plaisir de recevoir dans ma boîte aux lettres "Two Graves", en cadeau de pré-Noël. Pas question de faire attendre Pendergast sous le sapin. Il est trop grand pour cela. D'ailleurs, je n'ai pas de sapin. Noël m'emmerde.
J'ai chronométré mon temps de lecture. 4h30 environ les 472 pages. Donc, outre le contenu vraiment intéressant de ce livre (un agent du FBI intellectuellement surhumain aux prises avec les fantômes de son passé et des nazis dans la jungle - et pas dans le métro - vous n'avez pas besoin d'en savoir davantage. Pour les spoilers, c'est la porte à côté), je dirais que l'ouvrage est d'un excellent rapport qualité-prix.
Je le recommande donc, mais uniquement aux anglophones confirmés. Pour ceux qui ne savent que déchiffrer, je leur conseille de se limiter à Twilight, encore que j'ai bon espoir pour vous : c'est toujours ça de pris par rapport à ceux qui se sont contentés de voir les films.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Hogwash - But O So Fun! 5 janvier 2013
Par Irish - Publié sur Amazon.com

There are some books I struggle to finish because the premise is so outlandish that my 'yea right,' radar goes off on every page and I can't find the stories believable. With Preston and Child, however, they can write a book and have the most outlandish premise but I gobble up each page in anticipation of what comes next. I thoroughly enjoy their work. They provide great atmosphere, evil characters, wonderful heroes and a wee bit of stretchy plots, but I always smile when I see a new Pendergast novel.

Two Graves explores Helen's past and we meet the people who wanted her dead. I had thought the series had faultered with all the Helen and Pendergast drama, but this book sums it all up and puts to rest the marriage with all of its complications, implications and secrets. For me, the last book, Cold Vengeance, and this one came together and explained the mystery surrounding Helen and ties it up. There are several new twists which are very surprising and makes this reader want to delve into the next novel with high anticipation.

Two Graves starts off interestingly with a series of bizarre murders in New York where the killer allows himself to be video taped walking around in the hotels where he commits his atrocious acts. Pendergast is wallowing in self pity as his beloved Helen has again been kidnapped and he feels he is at fault. Vincent's crime report of the bizarre killings causes Pendergast to snap out of his slump and get to work.

There are some minor plots that involve other characters (an especially good one involving Constance Green) in the series but the main story has Pendergast out to seek revenge against a familiar evil and in turn, he comes face to face with rather bizarre revelations in the process.

This is a book fans will eat up. The 'yea right' factor may rear its head but with the deft hands of Preston and Child it will be ran over and riddled with bullets before you can turn the page to find out what happens next.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Revenge is a dish best served on a silver platter, by Proctor, in the library 8 décembre 2012
Par Tim Actual - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
There have been a lot of good books from big name authors this year. Brad Thor, Vince Flynn, Ken Follett, Lee Child, Brett Battles, James Rollins, Daniel Silva, Michael Connelly, "Robert Ludlum", and even Michael Crichton have recentlymade contributions to my bookshelf. Two graves is my favorite, and easily the best book I've read in quite a while. It's not that rare that a book comes along that I enjoy so much I finish reading it in a night or two. But what is rare are books so good that I actually slow down and take the time to enjoy every page, and two graves was one of those books. I gave it five stars because it's that good of a book. Not because I'm a devotee of the authors and NOT because I was lucky enough to be sent an advance copy by the authors. This book has it all. Love, hate, despair, redemption, Nazis, thievery, action, guns, and a plot that twists and turns but never leaves you behind and never loses your interest. Did I mention there are Nazis? Oh yeah, and their secret base is in a _______, seriously. Awesome. Two graves will make you start the next chapter even though you have to be up in four hours.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Good, but... 10 janvier 2013
Par Mark Polino - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
I have mixed feelings about the last several Pendergast novels, the "Helen" trilogy in particular. Two Graves are solid. It's a good read and I wanted to know how it ends. It's nice that this one wraps up the "Helen" trilogy and we learn a lot more about Constance Green. But...I miss some of the old Pendergast. The Pendergast of Relic and Still Life with Crows. The brooding, Sherlockian Pendergast who pulls on the threads of an unusual scenario and then finally springs to action to catch a killer is still my favorite.

I'm of the opinion that some characters should develop and other characters really shouldn't. They should be the anchor around which other characters grow. In the early books, Pendergast was the anchor. D'Agosta, Corrie and others grew around Pendergast. In the last few books we more development of Pendergast and I'm less excited about it. I miss the mystery that was Pendergast.

As others have commented, the subplot with Corrie Swanson seems out of place. It feels like they are setting us up for a series starring her. What I would love to see in a future book is a Pendergast backstory, how did he come to join the FBI? Why to they pay him a dollar a year?

All in all, a good book. Maybe not the direction I was hoping for, but good none the less.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 New Pendergast Novel is Just OK - 29 décembre 2012
Par Ron Chicaferro - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
I'm sad to say that this new 'Pendergast' novel is just not up to the usual high standards of Preston and Child. For some inexplicable reason the book is broken into three stories: the main story involving the main protagonist, Agent Pendergast and also two additional stories involving other characters which have been included in other Pendergast stories. The two side stories lend nothing to the main story and make no sense being included. The main story is fine although the authors seem to be searching for more and more bizarre cases to involve Pendergast. The main story starts out nicely with some gruesome murders - but then it suddenly changes course and moves into a different story - most inexplicable. Hopefully, Preston and Child return to the basics of what made Agent Pendergast such a terrific character.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 The Two Graves of Cohesiveness and Reason 12 janvier 2013
Par Kristy - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I've read every Pendergast novel. Gradually he's become a more and more unrealistic character (not that he was ever particularly believable), but the stories were inventive and fun, so we forgave the authors their silly excesses. It's fiction, after all, and writers get to create their own worlds. But "Two Graves" is a colossal miscalculation. I don't think I've ever been more furious at a book. For the first two thirds of this trilogy, centered around Pendergast's late (?) wife, the authors built suspense, developed characters, and gradually framed a fairly interesting story, only to then crush and obliterate that story in the first 50 pages of book three. I wish I was exaggerating. Almost from the start, the reader is left with only one or two loose strands of extremely thin plot line to connect the first two installments with "Two Graves". After the story as the reader knows it has been dispatched, it becomes clear Preston & Child intend to use the rest of the book to lay out four separate plot lines, none of which appear to have much to do with each other, are barely connected to the rest of the trilogy, and cannot be reconciled without completely suspending logic and rationality. The authors must have had a VERY strict deadline.

Preston and Child remain gifted writers, but reading "Two Graves" is an exercise in patience and forgiveness. I'll likely read the next Pendergast book all the same, but I will not buy it. When it comes out, on a subsequent visit to my local library, if I remember, I'll grab it on my way out the door.
