Descriptions du produit

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

"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. The story is never predictable, and Pendergast is a multi-layered personality who keeps you guessing throughout."—Bookreporter.com


"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

"The action is constant and starts with a bang."—RT Book Reviews

"Another fast-paced murder mystery that crosses the country, dips into Mexico and then wallops Manhattan hotels. It's the perfect holiday gift for that thriller-genre lover in your life."—Asbury Park Press

"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


After his wife, Helen, is brazenly abducted before his eyes, Special Agent Pendergast furiously pursues the kidnappers, chasing them across the country and into Mexico. But then, things go terribly, tragically wrong; the kidnappers escape; and a shattered Pendergast retreats to his New York apartment and shuts out the world.

But when a string of bizarre murders erupts across several Manhattan hotels-perpetrated by a boy who seems to have an almost psychic ability to elude capture-NYPD Lieutenant D'Agosta asks his friend Pendergast for help. Reluctant at first, Pendergast soon discovers that the killings are a message from his wife's kidnappers. But why a message? And what does it mean?

When the kidnappers strike again at those closest to Pendergast, the FBI agent, filled anew with vengeful fury, sets out to track down and destroy those responsible. His journey takes him deep into the trackless forests of South America, where he ultimately finds himself face to face with an old evil that-rather than having been eradicated-is stirring anew... and with potentially world-altering consequences.

Confucius once said: "Before you embark on a journey of revenge, first dig two graves." Pendergast is about to learn the hard way just how true those words still ring.

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.

Hogwash - But O So Fun! 5 janvier 2013
Par C. Irish - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
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.

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.

A long wait for something average 16 janvier 2013
Par Schattenjager - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
This was definitely one of the more sour tasting Pendergast novels. The novel started up nicely enough but tapered off quickly. I had several upsets along the way. Some of the wording in the book was very repetitive, not just used often but used close together as well. For example - As he dove under the water the propeller missed his head by inches. He breached the surface and a gunshot rang out missing his head by inches.

There were a lot of missed by mere inch moments. I feel overall revelations in this book jump the shark, perhaps even a few times. Also, if the Dr. Felder and Corrie Swanson side stories were deleted altogether, this book in the series would be quite short. Those little jumps in the story were extremely boring to me, and provided absolutely no forward movement for the plot. If they are going to be expounded upon in subsequent novels, the authors should have just put those elements into the next one.

I usually enjoy finishing a Pendergast novel and comparing notes with my sister. Discussing which parts I enjoyed, which parts I had unanswered questions on, and we deliberate our hypotheses. With this one now concluded and I look back on it, there really wasn't too much to really enjoy compared to earlier works.

One statement that stuck out like a ugly, grotesque thumb, was when D'gosta was looking into this serial killer, and he says to himself in an inner monologue, how that he and Pendergast had worked on several cases in the past, but this one was the most strange. When that line came out, I had my own inner monologue that went something like this:

Wait, hold up. Seriously the strangest. Some douchebag serial killer is murdering people and leaving body parts at the crime scene and a message. That is weird, but remember that case where something was killing people and removing their brains and taking a large bite out of it. Or when some guy was stalking people and removing sections of their spines and creating some bizarre formula to slow the aging process. Or when there was the possibility of zombies roaming the streets of N.Y. Or even stranger still people being murdered by a possible demon.

Now those cases were strange, but this little serial killer didn't seem very interesting at all, and even less interesting was who the serial killer turns out to be. That individual would be the flying leap over the shark I mentioned. Furthermore, I just don't think the concept of the whole Nazis being involved grasped me. I'm hoping they fix their formula for the next Pendergast novel and give us another top notch stand alone. Overall, the wait for this newest edition seemed very anti-climatic.

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.

The worst 'Pendergast' novel...ever 6 janvier 2013
Par PJA - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I am a long-time, devoted and enthusiastic fan of the novels (jointly and solo-written) of Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child...especially those devoted to the adventures of FBI Special Agent Aloysius Pendergast.

Not that each one was a masterpiece...but, each featured some hair-raising danger and the brilliant, laconic, enigmatic...yet never superhero-ish...Pendergast. This theme was consistent troughout the 1st two books of their latest Pendergast trilogy (Fever Dream and Cold Vengeance); which opened a new window into Pendergast's history; placed him in unprecedented personal danger and laid out a plot of international intrigues worthy of Bond vs SPECTRE.

Therefore, it was with great anticipation that I started to read the final book: "Two Graves"; and, with greater disappointment that I came to its conclusion. If the two authors had not been so prominent in promoting the book via commercials, Facebook, etc, I would have had to believe that it was a cheap imitation of one of their novels...by a very inferior writer(s).
Sadly, it reflects the kind of 'writing' that Preston/Child presented with their 'Gideon' series...a lower level of cheap thrills, ridiculous escapes and leaps of faith that more properly belong in the books of the 'Matt Helm' or 'Destroyer' canon.

In Two Graves, the conspiracy turns out to be the work of (gasp!) super-science neo-Nazis, working from a hidden base in the Amazon Jungle (beyond cliche); and, Pendergast is transformed into an indestructible Superhero: combining aspects of Doc Savage, Indiana Jones, Batman...with a little 'Spy Smasher' thrown in for good measure.

While past Pendergast novels have always included a touch (or, a lot) of pulp-y SciFi gimmicks (youth serums, monsters created by eating forbidden veggies, etc.) they have always insisted on a level of respect for the reader's intelligence. None of them has ever been as ludicrous, banal, and as plain sloppy as the plotting/pacing/characterizations of 'Two Graves'.

While I look forward to the continued efforts of these authors, I may get their next Pendergast novel from my local library, before paying good money for another novel as brainless as 'Two Graves'. Gentlemen, you are better than this!
