Description

William Smithback, a New York Times reporter, and his wife Nora Kelly, a Museum of Natural History archeologist, are brutally attacked in their apartment on the Upper West side of Manhattan. Eyewitnesses claim and the security camera confirms the killer seen leaving the building was their strange, sinister neighbor - a man who, by all reports, was already dead.

Captain Hayward leads the official homocide investigation, while Pendergast, D'Agosta, and Nora undertake a private quest for the truth. Their serpentine journey takes them into a part of Manhattan they never imagined could exist: a secretive and deadly hotbed of Obeah, the West Indian Zombii cult of sorcery and magic. And it is here they find their true peril is just beginning.

Pendergast fans won't be disappointed

I fell in love with the Pendergast novels when, on a whim, I borrowed an audiobook from the library. Since then I've grabbed onto all of the books in this series. The characters are great, the narrator - Rene Auberjonois - is fantastic, and I love trying to figure out the mystery. This one broke my heart in the beginning and I was determined to figure out who was behind it! A great book with a great cast of characters! #Audible1

Not for the faint of heart OR animal lovers

I liked the beginning of this book, however the graphic nature and shear sadness of the animal cruelty really turned me off. Be forewarned some content is hard to take.

Here's a suggestion...

Don't give away major plot elements in your reviews!

It is very easy to write a review without ruining the book for others by giving away the major events.

Please try to be more considerate of others who have yet to read the book.

Not All Pendergast

Novel doesn't evolve so much around Pendergast; instead I loved listening to all the mysterious events. Shocked with first murder. Totally unexpected

Zombies in Manhattan

What made the experience of listening to Cemetery Dance the most enjoyable?

Both the story and the fine narration were excellent. One was glued to one's seat waiting and wondering what the next chapter would bring.

What did you like best about this story?

The story had you believing zombies were real.

Which scene was your favorite?

Any of the scenes with the zombies. I loved the action, sounds and fear.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I was so sad for the lost of a main character.

Still a fan...but they struggled with this one.

I pick up anything from Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child. I'm a fan, have read all their books, and am waiting for their next novel.

That said, I couldn't help but feel Messrs. Preston and Child were struggling to pull all the loose strings together on this one toward the end. I guess it still worked. But, I couldn't say it's "up there" with their other works.

Would I still have purchased it, knowing what I know? Yeah. But, then again, I'm a fan.

Pendergast in Manhattan with Zombies

Could it be faster paced? Possibly. Could it be less gorey? Probably. Could it be more "up beat"? Perhaps. But then, it wouldn't be Pendergast. Add Rene Auberjonois and his New Orleans Southern aristocrat accent and prepare yourself for listening at it's best.

Haven't met Special Agent Pendergast? This is as good a place to start as any. You'll be glad you did.

Fantastic!

This book reaches out and grabs you and doesn't let go. An excellent summer read. Rene Auberjonois' narration is top-notch.

I wanted to find out how it would end, but I was sorry when it did.

Disappointing

I am a huge fan of the Pendergast series. However, this novel and the one prior to it have not lived up to the quality of the other books in this series. I would give this one higher marks than "The Wheel of Darkness", but not much higher. Zombies? Really? It seems that Preston and Child have run out of ideas. The book did get somewhat better in the latter third of the novel, but not very good overall. The narration, however, was top-notch.

We are going off the rails here...

I have loved this series so far, but this is an extremely weak installment. Full of zombies and voodoo, the whole thing is just a mess.

I would only recommend this one for the die hard fan.

love this series!

Yes, there is animal sacrifice graphically depicted in this novel, however there are still cultures today that perform these acts. It is better to be aware that these actions still exist rather than bury your head in the sand and pretend it doesnt happen. The sacrifices depicted are not gratuitous for the novel, they lend credence to the story being told.
