Following pretty much immediately after the conclusion of Crooked River (2020), the new Pendergast novel finds the FBI Special Agent winging his way to Georgia, where human bodies have been found drained of their blood. A local legend concerning a vampire has got some people spooked, but Pendergast, always the pragmatist, believes there is a less supernatural explanation. But what's really got him intrigued is the apparent connection between these modern-day murders and the 1971 airplane hijacking famously perpetrated by a man known only as D. B. Cooper. It will come as no surprise to fans of the long-running Pendergast series (Relic, the first novel in which he appeared, was published in 1995) that this novel is exquisitely written and beautifully plotted, and that Pendergast continues to be one of the most interesting characters in the thriller genre. Preston and Child each have thriving solo writing careers, but when they team up, great things happen.

A prologue to Preston and Child's disappointing 20th thriller featuring FBI agent Aloysius Pendergast (after 2020's Crooked River) depicts the notorious unsolved 1971 plane hijacking by D.B. Cooper in the Pacific Northwest. In the present, Pendergast and his partner, Armstrong Coldmoon, have been dispatched to Georgia to investigate several baffling murders. As the victims were drained of blood through one of their multiple stab wounds, the killer is dubbed the Savannah Vampire. Pressure to close the case quickly comes from a boorish U.S. senator, who fears bad press about the crimes will imperil his reelection bid. Pendergast's ward, Constance Greene, assists by befriending a reclusive hotel owner rumored to have prolonged her life by drinking human blood. How the plane hijacking ties in with the current action will surprise readers, but the lack of real scares, an outlandish solution to the central mystery, and a lead who's more action hero than Sherlockian sleuth render this a lesser series entry. X-Files fans will best appreciate this one. Agent: Eric Simonoff, WME. (Aug.)

In November 1971, D.B. Cooper hijacked a Portland-to-Seattle flight, collected a $200,000 ransom, and parachuted into oblivion. Fifty years later, bodies drained of blood are beginning to stack up in the streets of Savanah, GA, raising fears that the city's legendary vampire is real. Agent Pendergast is about to discover the link between these stories. With a 250,000-copy first printing.
