#5 Relic ~~ Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child

4 of 5 stars

 

Just days before a massive exhibition opens at the popular New York Museum of Natural History, visitors are being savagely murdered in the museum’s dark hallways and secret rooms. Autopsies indicate that the killer cannot be human…

But the museum’s directors plan to go ahead with a big bash to celebrate the new exhibition, in spite of the murders.

Museum researcher Margo Green must find out who–or what–is doing the killing. But can she do it in time to stop the massacre?

 

Ana Says: I started reading this before Christmas, but set it down because it wasn’t holding my interest. I’m so glad I decided to pick it back up and give it a second chance because I really enjoyed this book. Some of the characters (especially the more antagonistic ones) were a bit flat, but the story was so engrossing I barely even noticed them. Agent Pendergast is a charmingly complex character and my biggest gripe is that he didn’t have nearly enough page time.

  1. This series is FABULOUS. Liz turned me on to Pendergast. I have the entire series. If you want it, let me know and I can mail them to you!! (As soon as I get the first three back from the person that has them!)

      • Liz had sent me the whole series and then I sent the first three to Mystery Reader, who says she still has them. But, knowing Liz, she sent more copies to Rachel. She’s definitely a Pendergast pimp! Do you want the rest??
