LOL! with the details in the description (Summary) or the Kirkus Reviews, the spoiler-police would surely blank them out if posted by library readers. Anyway, Pendergast was back in NYC, missing the forever young Constance who was away with "the boy" (The Obsidian Chamber), his friend D'Agosta came knocking and literally begged for his help in a high profile murder investigation. With the exception of the initial case, enjoyed how readers were afforded the footsteps of the killer(s) during the most unusual kill(s). Appreciate how the authors painted the antagonist as a genuine genius nutcase with massive resources that made the events plausible; perhaps with the exception on the preservation of paper files, a game changer. The body counts piled up as Pendergast worked the case halfheartedly, missing Constance all the while, until... Surprised and glad that the authors engaged their thoughts on the debate on “one percenters” since Pendergast is clearly one. A page turner: enjoyable, easy read (very few archaic phrases and words.)
