Description du produit

Revue de presse

"Another highly entertaining and genuinely thrilling story from Preston & Child starring their romantic, faintly gothic, and always mysterious FBI agent, Aloysius Pendergast. As always the prose is elegant, replete with exquisite descriptions, and this time we're treated to dashes of historic characters Conan Doyle and Oscar Wilde, as well as a positively delicious serving of the great Sherlock Holmes. Through myriad shocks, surprises, twists and turns, the suspense never lets up. Great fun to the last page."―Anne Rice


"A mile-a-minute thriller with a deeply entertaining plot and marvelous characters, in a setting that will chill your blood, and not only because it's 10 degrees below zero and covered with snow. My copy is full of crumbs because I couldn't put it down long enough to eat."―Diana Gabaldon


"WHITE FIRE is as incandescent as its title, a beautifully organized, tautly paced book that really did just yank me in and demand that I keep reading. I'm very grateful for the experience."―Peter Straub

"Preston and Child have created a terrific mix of mystery and the unexpected that will keep you reading into the late hours of the night. They promise a great read and they have delivered."―Clive Cussler


"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 continue their dominance of the thriller genre with stellar writing and twists that come at a furious pace. Others may try to write like them, but no one can come close. The best in the business deliver another winner."―RT Book Reviews on Cold Vengeance


"This is no dream; it's the authors' best book in years. Pendergast has to rein in his feelings to pay attention to the details, and it's fun to see the role reversal between him and the usually emotional D'Agosta. Not to be missed by either newcomers or die-hard fans."―Library Journal (starred review) for Fever Dream --Ce texte fait référence à une édition épuisée ou non disponible de ce titre.

Présentation de l'éditeur

Past and present collide in Preston and Child's most thrilling novel ever . . .

WHITE FIRE

Special Agent Pendergast arrives at an exclusive Colorado ski resort to rescue his protégée, Corrie Swanson, from serious trouble with the law. His sudden appearance coincides with the first attack of a murderous arsonist who--with brutal precision--begins burning down multimillion-dollar mansions with the families locked inside. After springing Corrie from jail, Pendergast learns she made a discovery while examining the bones of several miners who were killed 150 years earlier by a rogue grizzly bear. Her finding is so astonishing that it, even more than the arsonist, threatens the resort's very existence.

Drawn deeper into the investigation, Pendergast uncovers a mysterious connection between the dead miners and a fabled, long-lost Sherlock Holmes story--one that might just offer the key to the modern day killings as well.

Now, with the ski resort snowed in and under savage attack--and Corrie's life suddenly in grave danger--Pendergast must solve the enigma of the past before the town of the present goes up in flames.

Preston et Child nous ont encore une fois concocté un petit bijou de suspense et de terreur.
Jamais déçue par mes deux auteurs préférés, je suis toujours triste de refermer le livre des aventures de Pendergast.
J'espère que Preston et Child continueront à le faire vivre encore pour de nouvelles péripéties et des enquêtes passionnantes.

J'avais tellement entendu de bien des livres de Preston & Child que je me suis précipitée pour charger ce livre lorsqu'il a été (brièvement) gratuit.
Je viens de le terminer et, si la première moitié a été passionnante, la suite n'a pas rempli le contrat et j'avoue avoir sauté pas mal de pages.
Toute l'histoire et notamment le personnage de Pendergast soi-disant du FBI (ce pauvre Edgar J doit se retourner dans sa tombe) me semble totalement invraisemblable et plus à sa place dans un livre de sorciers et de démons type Harry Potter qui n'est pas ma tasse de thé.

..cold and boring. The plot seemed interesting and oriiginal at first but the developmentbecomes quickly incredibly boring and unbeleivable. The main character is a flat 'n stupid girl, you cannot understand her connection to the FBI agent (I guess you have tor read the other books by the same authors to do so); the FBI agent is hardly human and his luck in the investigation just unbeleivable. the end is quite predictable. Not a good mystery book

1.0 étoiles sur 5 What a dissapointing book 17 juin 2014
Par Senor Nahual - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Well, after a third of this novel, I just couldn't take it anymore. I really loved the early Pendergast novels. But the last few have been not even as good as those early works. This was just terrible in that the authors change the personality of characters from one scene to the next, namely the Corrie character whose presence takes up far too much of the book and ruins it. Corrie is this rebel punk kid who pendergast is putting through criminal science school. When she first meets him in a resteurant after being freed from jail by him she talks like she did back where she came from. But other times, in her thoughts and speech she is this uber educated criminoligist using vocabulary that in no way would someone from her upbringing and short life be privy to. She's a hick and the authors make her out to be this criminal scientist. She wouldn't talk like she talks or think like she is made out to think given her history. But worse, she gets this job housesitting this horrible secluded mansion, finds out its for no pay but still takes it, finds out there's no heat over 50 degrees, but still takes it because (bull) she needs a place to stay. But pendergast has offered her 5 star accomodations but , oh no!, she won't accept help. Stupid just stupid. Then she comes back to the place in the dark finds a cuty dog there waiting for her. Takes the dog in goes to bed by herself, and after all the horrible caca she's been through, doesn't even have a gun or weapon. Then hears someone scratching at the house trying to get in, is scared out of her friggin mind watching the security cameras that just can't catch whoever is out there. Oh wait, she FORGOT her cell phone in the car, her only means to try and get help. She just 'forgot" it. And of course she's well aware of a recent quadruple homicide. But she 'forgot' her phone in her car. So she's scared out of her wits all night. But in the morning she, are you ready for this? She 'tries to convince herself it was her imagination'!!!!! Then la de da, goes back to her work as if nothing ahd happened. ANYONE and I mean anyone, especially a lone female in the middle of nowhere would have left that place and never come back, would have reported it at first light. And when pendergast comes to see her that morning, she doesn't even mention it and is irritated with him (again) for no reason and her thoughts and words are not those of the corrie that was described previously. I'm am not even beginning here to describe how illogical and irritating the authors are with their characters. It gets me irritated just writing about it as it was such a waste, of my money and time to read this ridiculous book. And that is just one character, tip of the iceberg. And the authors must really be enamored with money or something because they go on and on and on at every opportunity to try to impress with how EXPENSIVE everything is, the food, the houses, blah blah blah. Who cares? And even Pendergast is not himself, not enough involvement. Well I hated it as I'm sure you've gathered. This is the last book by these authors for me. 3 bad ones in a row is quite enough.

After the disaster that was Two Graves (I know it sold well - irrelevant), Preston and Child are back to true form with a much needed traditional Pendergast story. The book's plot idea is apparently inspired by a conversation that may have taken place in London between Oscar Wilde and Sir Aurthor Conan Doyle. But from there Preston and Child, presumably having shared two or three bottles of good tequila, struck out pretty far on their own. White Fire deals with, among other things, murder, a serial arsonist, a land swindle, a criminal heiress, a rogue bear killing miners in Colorado in the mid 1800s, a PTSD-afflicted vet, an obscure Sherlock Holmes enthusiast club, and a previously undiscovered Holmes story by Doyle himself. Drop all that plus Pendergast and his would-be protege, Corrie Swanson, into a blender, hit puree, and voila.

This story is a lot of fun. For long stretches it's a blast, actually. Back are some of Preston and Child's well-honed devices like having Pendergast outwit arrogant buffoons in comedic fashion, macabre and murky clues from the past, subtle references to the many horrors Pendergast struggles with, his enigmatic style and limitless wealth, etc. These all work very well. So much was going for the authors in fact, that it's that much more of a shame they broke down and reached for the plot line Easy Button.

A few examples:
1) Corrie Swanson, a character of much squandered potential, is almost a guest in her own story since the authors use her mainly to move the plot along by having her repeatedly act like a complete idiot.
2) Roger Ebert's Law of Economy of Characters is on full display here.
3) Pendergast has a famous disdain for all things supernatural, and yet what else can we call his ability to let his subconcious mind drift back into the past and show him details of events he was not privy to? It was one thing when, in previous books, he used his memory trick to recall details from his own childhood, but it is quite another to use it to witness events from the 1800s. Pendergast is either human or a wizard. Preston and Child need to pick.
4) "So Very Neat & Tidy," should be the title of the last chapter.

All that aside, it's still a fun read. After Two Graves I thought I was done with Pendergast. I got White Fire for $1.99 via BookBub and overall I'm glad I did. It'll take you for a decent ride, even if the tour guide seems a little drunk sometimes.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Enjoyable enough, but an uneven effort 14 novembre 2013
Par Armando Santiago - Publié sur Amazon.com

I am a big fan of the series, I did like the book, and I read it more or less fast. But at times it was disappointing.
As for the things I did like:

A) In my opinion, the Pendergast series works best in stories dealing with the macabre, as opposed too relying too much on action based narrative, and in that sense this book delivers.

B) The exchanges between Doyle and Wilde are, quite simply delightful.

C) Pendergast has a chance to display his ability to totally subdue pompous arrogant jerks in his usual fashion.

D) This book interweaves not one, nor two, but three mysteries, in effective fashion.

E) I like that continuity is respected. In one on other level, we are reminded of the fact Pendergast is still dealing with the ramifications of past events, and that other interesting characters inhabit this universe.

F) We are gifted with a fake bonus Sherlock Holmes story, that was authentic enough, that really took me back.

What I did not like:

A) This is really disappointing, and in my opinion, this by itself costs the book one star. The resolution of the whole affair relies on the old fashion escape route of having one of the main characters acting like a complete idiot.

B) I don't know if this is my own fault or not, but ever since reading Roger Ebert's principle of the unnecessary character (or however he used to call it), I have become more likely to guess who the mystery bad guy is. I guess that the authors could do a bit more of an effort to disguise those characters.

C) And well, the book is short. I think the premise was strong enough that it deserved a more intricate story.

All in all, fans should buy the book of course, but new readers should find some of his earlier stand alone efforts, too really appreciate what a good Pendergast novel is about.

Aside from some occurrences that strain credulity (fortuitous events, characters' suddenly having tools they happen to need), P&C's writing is typically very good. The reader usually gets swept up in the action and doesn't have time to think, and to a certain extent that was true here. However, Corrie's character development was spotty. She sometimes resented Pendergast, although her rationale for doing so wasn't believable. Also the book's denouement was brought on by a series of actions by her that were so foolish as to strain credulity and destroy sympathy for the character. Someone has made several attempts on your life. You are walking down a deserted street and discover tracks in the snow indicating you're being followed. You don't go back into safety but drive to a deserted facility (knowing a monster snowstorm is coming). While there, you notice another vehicle has followed you to the deserted warehouse. Instead of getting in your vehicle and driving home to safety, you instead proceed with your plan to steal a snowmobile and drive up to an abandoned mine, which you have no guarantee you can break into and where you will be trapped by a potential killer. In the inevitable chase through said mine, you have a map that allows you to easily find your way through miles of tunnels to escape. The utter foolishness of this distanced the character from me. Being so terribly foolish doesn't mean someone deserves to be murdered, but it certainly makes the character a lot less sympathetic. The bad guy was also very guessable.

On the positive side, good use of Sherlock Holmes, on whom Pendergast is obviously modeled to a certain extent.

The spottiness of this book, the weakest in the series so far IMO makes me wonder if P&C are losing interest, or maybe Corrie, who carries much of the book, fails to arouse sufficient interest for them to do a good job with a story built around her character.

In conclusion, definitely worth reading. Just not quite up to the levels of previous books in the series.

Unlike many other Pendergast novels, this one deals with, for the most part, real world issues rather than supernatural ones. OK, at one point, Pendergast does time travel, but a without at least a little bit of supernatural it'd not be a real Pendergast effort.

The two protagonists, Pendergast and Corrie who, I suppose, is some sort of ward of his, spend most of the book apart having separate adventures. Given that Corrie is supposed to be a good guy, she's about as offensively self centered unthinking a person as one can imagine in that position. She persistently does one dimwitted thing after another much to the reader's annoyance. Finally, at the very end of the book, she pulls one more unbelievably stupid move which, like when the teens in a slasher movie choose to split apart, the reader or viewer knows exactly what will happen and it does.

Since Pendergast or some miraculous agency is always there to bail her out of the messes she chooses to run into, the book lacks any tension at all. The mechanism for her rescues are often clever but their existence is never in doubt.

Meanwhile Pendergast isn't shown to be much better. Using what can only be a magical information gathering network, he uses either extortion or outright bullying to get what he wants. Several times in the book, he resorts to what can only be described as blackmail but I suppose since he's the hero, we're supposed to forgive his nasty tactics in support of ends we're supposed to find good. So the ends justify the means here as in so many areas.

Just from memory, Pendergast uses extortion two or three times, commits a breaking and entering and also a grand larceny. Corrie does a break and enter twice, a venture into grand theft and even tries to steal some body parts from a grave to get a good mark in school. She gives her word to care for a house and then changes her mind when she, in retrospect, doesn't like the deal so ignores the desires of the homeowner and her own contract and surprise surprise - she does what she wants.

A strong plot let down by repulsive protagonists.
