        Douglas Preston was born in Cambridge, Massachusetts, in 1956, and grew up in the deadly boring suburb of Wellesley Following a distinguished career at a private nursery school he was almost immediately expelled he attended public schools and the Cambridge School of Weston Notable events in his early life included the loss of a fingertip at the age of three to a bicycle the loss of his two front teeth to his brother Richard s fist and various broken bones, also incurred in dust ups with Richard Richard went on to write The Hot Zone and The Cobra Event, which tells you all you need to know about what it was like to grow up with him as a brother As they grew up, Doug, Richard, and their little brother David roamed the quiet suburbs of Wellesley, terrorizing the natives with home made rockets and incendiary devices mail ordered from the backs of comic books or concocted from chemistry sets With a friend they once attempted to fly a rocket into Wellesley Square the rocket malfunctioned and nearly killed a man mowing his lawn They were local celebrities, often appearing in the Police Notes section of The Wellesley Townsman It is a miracle they survived childhood intact.After unaccountably being rejected by Stanford University a pox on it , Preston attended Pomona College in Claremont, California, where he studied mathematics, biology, physics, anthropology, chemistry, geology, and astronomy before settling down to English literature After graduating, Preston began his career at the American Museum of Natural History in New York as an editor, writer, and eventually manager of publications Preston also taught writing at Princeton University and was managing editor of Curator His eight year stint at the Museum resulted in the non fiction book, Dinosaurs in the Attic, edited by a rising young star at St Martin s Press, a polymath by the name of Lincoln Child During this period, Preston gave Child a midnight tour of the museum, and in the darkened Hall of Late Dinosaurs, under a looming T Rex, Child turned to Preston and said This would make the perfect setting for a thriller That thriller would, of course, be Relic.In 1986, Douglas Preston piled everything he owned into the back of a Subaru and moved from New York City to Santa Fe to write full time, following the advice of S J Perelman that the dubious privilege of a freelance writer is he s given the freedom to starve anywhere After the requisite period of penury, Preston achieved a small success with the publication of Cities of Gold, a non fiction book about Coronado s search for the legendary Seven Cities of Cibola To research the book, Preston and a friend retraced on horseback 1,000 miles of Coronado s route across Arizona and New Mexico, packing their supplies and sleeping under the stars nearly killing themselves in the process Since then he has published several non fiction books on the history of the American Southwest, Talking to the Ground and The Royal Road, as well as a novel entitled Jennie In the early 1990s Preston and Child teamed up to write suspense novels Relic was the first, followed by several others, including Riptide and Thunderhead Relic was released as a motion picture by Paramount in 1997 Other films are under development at Hollywood studios Preston and Child live 500 miles apart and write their books together via telephone, fax, and the Internet.Preston and his brother Richard are currently producing a television miniseries for ABC and Mandalay Entertainment, to be aired in the spring of 2000, if all goes well, which in Hollywood is rarely the case.Preston continues a magazine writing career by contributing regularly to The New Yorker magazine He has also written for National Geographic, Natural History, Smithsonisan, Harper s,and Travel Leisure,among otherscmillan author dougla

    1. The idea of an 'evil genius' Supervillain disappearing from the face of the earth to plot and scheme, and plan the ultimate crime, seems laughable, and stereotypical on so many levels, at first. The fact that he is the brother of the protagonist enhances this impression. The thing is, however, that there's nothing laughable about the way he goes about it. Dance of Death opens with a classroom discussion of The Waste Land by T.S. Eliot, during which an unflinchingly gruesome and disturbing death [...]


    2. Keep the Pendergast coming! 5++++++ starsI cannot begin to even explain the goodness that is this book series. The story lines are creative and complex: it’s like watching the world’s most interesting puzzle being put together every time I read one of these. I am tempted to plow right through the whole series right now, but then I won’t have any left!If you like action-mysteries and you have not read any of these books, you are doing yourself a disservice! Be sure to read them in order, th [...]


    3. Another great and exciting adventure with Pendergast and crew! The action was just nonstop in this book.Of course, this one ends with a cliffhanger. Looking forward to getting to the next book in the Diogenes series!


    4. I have been a fan of Agent Pendergast ever since I read the first novel in this series in 1995 when it was first published. At the time, I remember I enjoyed Relic because Pendergast was awesomely different and the story thrillingly gruesome. Then life got extraordinarily busy for meds, a divorce, years as a single mom, remarriage, etc etc.you knowhard-core adultingd I lost track of this series for a long time. Fast forward about 10 yearsy one child left at homed more time on my hands.I re-disco [...]



    5. I didn't find this as good as the others in the series. The evil brother story line seemed a bit TOO far fetched to me. Having said that, it was still a good and action packed read. I see the next one continues the story line so I hope it wraps up more satisfactorily.


    6. Starting was good, writing was as usual intressting, but the ending got me disappointed by telling something very big crime Is going to happen and its another theft. Rather then making a perfect ending the author used it to continue the plot for another book.


    7. Another great Pendergast book by Preston/Child! I’ll try for a longer review shortly. Can’t wait to read the next one, and last in the Diogenes trilogy.


    8. Another novel in the Agent Pendergast series. In this one, his brother is the villian and has a vendetta against the main character. This book held my interest thru the whole book. The action in this book has a nice pace and you find yourself anticipating the confrontation between the two brothers. I thought this book wasn't quite as dark as other ones in this series. The only problem with this book is a cliffhangar at the end. I enjoyed this book and I believe this one is definitely worth a rea [...]


    9. This is a run of the mill action thriller and quite unlike any other book in the series so far. There is zero creepiness, we know who the antagonist is right from the start and the story is your usual serial killer messes with good cop trope. So it is very different from your usual Pendergast storylines.There are tons of Sherlock Holmes references in this book (more so than usual). Agent Pendergast pulls a Reichenbach Falls at the end of Brimstone and, appropriately enough, comes back into an Em [...]


    10. I was dissatisfied with this outing featuring FBI Agent Pendergast working with NYC Detective Dagosta to stop the fiendish plans of Pendergast’s twisted brother Diogenes. A “perfect crime” is promised on a certain date in the near future while along the way Pendergast is being tormented by the horrific murders of his close friends in various parts of the country. What is disappointing is how little success Pendergast has in stopping those murders. It was sad to see Pendergast so pressed ag [...]


    11. I love these two authors, both together and as individual writers. They always put together a whopping good story.But, frankly their FBI Special Agent character Aloysius Pendergast is starting to wear a bit thin. He has always had a bit of unbelievability about him, but it is getting worse and worse. And now we have his evil brother, Diogenes, who is approaching godhood in his abilities to do evil things without being caught. And his whole reason for living is to torment his brother without kill [...]


    12. I love this series! Full review later.I think the series gets better as it adds to its own history. By book 7 we have come over 3,000 pages with these characters yet I feel like I am just getting to know Pendergast. He is the tip of the ice-berg with 90% below the surface type of guy, and a big part of that is his evil brother (not quite an evil twin, but close) and the dynamic of that relationship.Diogenes takes center stage in this one, eclipsing Special Agent Pendergast himself, and proves to [...]


    13. A satisfying read, except for the typo "Harriman would have free reign"AAARRRGGGHHH.Apparently no one rides horses anymore. This is a HORSE metaphor, not a royalty metaphor. But honestly, it's not as if we have more monarchs in the world than we do equestrians! FREE REIN. Give it to your horse today.


    14. I feel as if I'm coming to the end of my rope, in regards to the Preston & Child, Pendergast Series. On one hand, there's a lot of good in every book. On the otherere's just so much bad. And with each ensuing book, I feel like I've lost the want and will to continue, a bit more.This is the second book in a row, as part of this series, that ends unfinished. If you can't tell a complete story in over 450 pages then you're doing a poor job of writing. And some will argue that the points of this [...]


    15. The intelligent and luxurious thriller with a signature twist is back! Each book from this series is like a jewel but I simply loved book six and again it proved that no one can write the way this talented duo does, Pendergast is my favorite literary character, so much that I wonder what he’d do in hard situations and I picked up on his way of thinking, obviously I’m not some zen master/FBI agent with an intense IQ with the tact of a monk and stealth of a ninja but still, he’s someone you [...]


    16. NOOOOOOOOOOO!I could feel it coming in book 5 and now here it is. I'm so frustrated with this story. I really am. I've been loving Pendergast so much, but I can't stand this. It's so obvious where this whole story is going and I hate it. I don't like knowing the end at the beginning, especially when the end is so full of crap. So I'm mad.Really, really, really, mad. And just a little bit heartbroken.I haven't quite decided what I'll do. I kept trying to read it but I was too frustrated. I made i [...]


    17. This was the 2nd book in the Pendergast Trilogy. I've read the 3rd as well, and since I read them out of order it was interesting b/c I knew kind of what would happen. They are great books, highly intelligent. But, read them in order.


    18. I've been reading quite a few mysteries lately so my son loaned me this book. I've also been plagued with fatigue in the past 2 months, therefore sleep takes precedents over reading so it took me a while to get through this story. This story was co-authored and both authors did a flawless job in creating an appetizing story and meshing writing styles. It was well written and I was pulled in during the first chapter. The story revolves around a policeman and an FBI agent (who at the beginning of [...]


    19. I am not sure how long I could keep reading these books if Pendergast keeps pulling all these magic tricks out of his sleeve that keep him alive, make him vanish when cornered, gets him information, or simply keep telling me that he is a walking encyclopedia of knowledge that will have an answer to any question that is presented to him. This time he is going against his brother, another walking miracle of human intelligence. While it sounds fun, the execution was not a particularly fun one. Agai [...]


    20. Dance of Death is the sixth book in the Special Agent Pendergast series. Also, this novel is the second book in the Diogenes trilogy. The first book is Brimstone, released in 2004, and the last book is The Book of the Dead, released in 2006.(view spoiler)[The book follows FBI Special Agent Aloysius Pendergast. Tagging along with him is his sidekick, Lieutenant Vincent D'Agosta. Pendergast was last seen at the end of the previous novel, Brimstone. In that he was buried alive behind a brick wall i [...]


    21. The middle book in the Diogenes sub-trilogy of the series doesn't have any of the supernatural elements of the other books in the series, rather it is a straight forward mystery, police procedural novel and perhaps the best book of the entire series. The book opens with D'Acosta, Constance and those close to Pendergast trying to come to grips with his death. Constance summons D'Acosta to Pendergast's home to give him a letter that was left for him asking D'Acosta to stop Pendergast's brother Dio [...]


    22. I really must get going on this series. I had forgotten how much I've enjoyed Agent Pendergast and the adventures he gets caught up in. This latest adventure involving his brother Diogenes as his nemesis, has me turning the pages. I will be reading the third book in the sub-series soon, like this month. I want to know how it turns out. Sure, some of it's a bit over the top. Some of the situations are too contrived and not realistic, but I'm not looking for realism in this series. I'm just lookin [...]


    23. Not quite up to Preston/Child's usual standards, this book was a continuation of BRIMSTONE and the prequel to BOOK OF THE DEAD. While I don't mind continuing plots like this, ordinarily, this book FELT like a setup for the next in many ways - the characters acted at odds to their usual depictions, and the scenarios felt quite forced. I can ordinarily figure out where a Preston/Child novel is going well before it gets there, but the entire setup this time just feltite and forced.Beyond that, the [...]


    24. This is definitely a better book in the Diogenes trilogy. Where Brimstone only teased with a few glimpses and mentions of Diogenes, this one made him integral. I really love the Pendergast and D'Agosta pairing but especially in this book. It was the first time I really felt that D'Agosta wasn't just running after Pendergast asking what the hell was going on, he had to spend the first part working things out by himself. I absolutely loved this storyline! Brimstone sets up the penultimate showdown [...]


    25. If there were a wish-I-hadn't-wasted-time-on-this-book shelf, then that's where I'd shelf this waste of paper. Grrrr. This book illustrates one of my pet peeves so clearly. I hate it when authors keep you going on the promise of the most astounding secret about a protagonist that will be revealed and then end the book in preparation for the sequel. This is literary laziness and cheating the reader to keep them going with a false promise. The authors don't have enough material to write a good tal [...]


    26. Just when I thought I was out Preston and Child pull me back in.Apparently a long break between reading books 5 and 6 was what I needed. This book flew by. The characters were interesting again (and it was a pseudo reunion from earlier books, although some old friends showed up only to get killed off). The ridiculousness of the previous book was somewhat left behind. Maybe the books that are set in New York City and involve the museum and the underground are just naturally better. This book, lik [...]


    27. Unfinishable: I only have a certain amount of book-reading time left in my life and I cannot waste it reading the kind of authors who make tongue-in-cheek references to their own earlier work as written by a recurring character. It's a tiny step away from actually putting themselves in the book as bit part characters, á la Clive Cussler.


    28. En malta odottaa, miten Pendergastille ja Diogeneelle vielä käy.Neljä tähteä. Onneksi on seuraava osa heti käsillä.


    29. Absolutely awesome. Agent Pendergast goes toe to toe with his twisted brother Diogenes. Pendergast returns from the dead only to be confronted by Diogenes with a challenge "Stop me if you can". Diogenes starts to kill off Pendergast's friends and sets him up to take the blame. With the ever faithful Lt. D'agosta helping him, Pendergast must stop his brother before he commits the perfect crime. But can he save his friends and himself? This may be Pendergast's greatest challenge.
