Review: The Obsidian Chamber

The Obsidian Chamber The Obsidian Chamber by Douglas Preston
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Review: THE OBSIDIAN CHAMBER by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child [A Pendergast Novel]

Authors Preston and Child have long since accustomed legions of devoted readers to labyrinthine plotting and indescribable characterization. In the newest Pendergast novel [October 2016] they have perhaps achieved their zenith. I read the novel in two days, but will be quite a while engaged in its absorption. Here the lives, past, present, and future, of Aloysius Pendergast, his ward Constance Greene, and his "late" brother Aloysius are extraordinarily delineated, along with a secondary cast of characters wrung through excruciating paces. The pace of suspense is near rocket speed, leaving wide-eyed readers breathless and enthralled.
