City of Endless Night

What begins as a manhunt for the missing daughter of a wealthy tech billionaire becomes something altogether different when the young woman's body is discovered in an abandoned warehouse in Kew Gardens, Queens, the head nowhere to be found. It appears there may be two killers on the loose--one responsible for the young woman's death, another responsible for the mutilation. What begins as a manhunt for the missing daughter of a wealthy tech billionaire becomes something altogether different wh...

    So, straight up, this review might be a little spoiler-y. Not ruin-the-book spoilers (I hope), but definitely some spoiler-y things. So if you hate spoilers, stop reading now. The Pendergast books tend to be a special pleasure for me. I look forward to a new one each year and when i...

    Even those of us who pride ourselves on reading "high brow" literature all have our guilty pleasures, and devouring the adventures of FBI Special Agent Aloysius Pendergast is one of mine. (Another guilty favorite is Evan Smoak of the Orphan X series.) I abhor violence and avoid it at a...

    4 Agent Pendergast and Lieutenant D'Agosta are back stars This is the seventeenth book in the Agent Pendergast series by Preston and Child and it's a good one. I so enjoyed every page turning moment as I sped through this book in a day. Pretty much proof of the "I can't put it down"...

    City of Endless Night is the seventeen book in the Pendergast series, and I have read every single one of them. My personal favorite is the ones that have a slight supernatural element to the story like the first book Relic with the monster in the New York Museum of Natural History, wh...

    Probably more like a 3.5-3.75. The spoiled daughter of a technology tycoon is killed, and her body is found in an abandoned warehouse ... without a head. NYPD Lt. Vincent D'Agosta catches the case. The case is sufficiently interesting to pique Agent Pendergast's fancy. When more headle...

    I received a copy of this book, City of Endless Night ,through a Goodreads giveaway. Many thanks to Grand Central Publishing! As a fan of Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child's 'Agent Pendergast' series, I am always eagerly awaiting each book. The latest, City of Endless Night is the 1...

    I can't remember the last time I sat down and devoured a book, cover-to-cover, in a single setting. It's a rare pleasure but, then again, so is Agent Pendergast. City of Endless Night continues the exploration of a weary and wounded Agent Pendergast, a man unsettled emotionally, and...

    While I would love to give this a more in-depth review, I'll be succinct in saying it was incredible to see Pendergast in this new light, and I await everyone's reactions to the ending. His cloak of invincibility is threadbare and fraying. ...

    Another satisfying read in the Pendergast series. While it doesn't move the overall "mythology" of the series along, it does provide a complex thriller with further insights into Pendergast's character, and it can be read as a standalone, set in New York City, featuring the the extreme...

    One or many with bizarre skilled savagery on the hunt, and quite possibly may be a capable adversary for the highly skilled FBI Special Agent Pendergast, who turns up to a crime scene with his vintage Rolls-Royce Silver Wraith with driver Proctor at the wheel, andLieutenant CDS Vin...

    What a disappointment. I love these books, as corny as they are what with the evil super-villains and the gory murders and the Lord Peter Wimsey-ish protagonist and the loyal sidekicks. They're one of my guilty pleasures, and I don't even feel guilty about it. But geez, this was just t...

    I received this ARC from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. After the last two lackluster entries in the series, we're finally back to a more traditional Pendergast story. While not the best offering in the series, it could only go up from Obsidian Chamber. Once again t...

    City of Endless Night is a throwback to the vintage Pendergast days. Similar to other books in this series, this book starts off strongly. The good thing is that this strong act 1 continues to the end of the book with a great climax. I liked this book because I did not see the ending a...

    The headless daughter of a millionaire is found, Pendergast who is in disgrace with the FBI after his last outing is assigned the case. Although working again with his friend, Detective D'Agosta, Pendergast shows little interest, taking it for the punishment it is meant to be. But then...

    Even after seventeen books, the Pendergast series is endlessly fascinating! This thriller takes place in NYC and begins with the discovery of the headless body of a young woman. FBI Special Agent Pendergast is called in to help D'Agosta and the NYPD because it appears she may have been...

    Unlike most of the Pendergast books, which once you open you can't put down until they are finished, this latest installment dragged along for me. The religious fanatic character was completely irrelevant to the story. The whole book seemed like a half-hearted attempt to churn out anot...

    Love this series; loved this book. From the first page on, I didn't want to put it down and, for the record, I read the whole thing in record time. While there's no shortage of action, though, this one - the 17th - focuses far less on the almost otherworldly side of FBI Special Age...

    Another year another Pendergast and this one is a fairly stand alone installment of the still satisfactory read that the misters Preston & Child still are able to deliver. This time NYPD Lieutenant Vincent D'Agosta is confronted by a series of murders in which the victim is left...

    Review: CITY OF ENDLESS NIGHT by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child I have devoured the Agent Pendergast novels since the very first. As a faithful reader, I confess to feeling since several novels back that I had gone off the rails. Perhaps it is my questioning if, after 17 installm...

    Ever since the end of the Diogenes Trilogy, the series has been in a decline. I still look forward to each new one, but each new entry has less going for it than the last. (In my opinion, the good ones have been Relic, Reliquary, The Cabinet of Curiosities, Still Life with Crows, the D...

    4.5 stars! CITY OF ENDLESS NIGHT, by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child is the 17th book in the Agent Pendergast series--arguably, their most popular character. In this latest, we join FBI Special Agent Aloysius Pendergast and Lieutenant Vincent D'Agosta in a series of crimes in NY--...

    I've read every book in this series and this is one of the better ones. It can be read as a standalone. The headless corpse of a young woman is found and FBI Special Agent Pendergast is assigned to work on the case with his police detective friend Vincent D'Agosta because he is in the ...

    Pendergast and D'Agosta try and track down a killer who is beating impossible odds and decapitating his victims. But Pendergast isn't his usual self. Constance's departure at the end of the last book has affected him more than he realizes. For most of the book his heart isn't in tracki...

    Well I enjoyed it but not as much as some of the earlier stories. Some parts of the book just couldn't quite hold my attention and I found myself doing other things. The last quarter of the book, the hunter vs the hunted, had the most action and was my favorite part of the book. I wa...
