|General Note:||Sequel to: Crooked river.|
|Summary, etc.:||November 24, 1971. D. B. Cooper hijacked Flight 305-- Portland to Seattle-- with a fake bomb, collected a ransom of $200,000, and then parachuted from the rear of the plane, disappearing into the night. Fifty years later, in the ghost-haunted city of Savannah, Georgia, bodies are found with no blood left in their veins, sowing panic and reviving whispered tales of the infamous Savannah Vampire. As the mystery rises along with the body count, Agent Pendergast and his partner, Agent Coldmoon, race to understand how-- or if-- these murders are connected to the only unsolved skyjacking in American history. -- adapted from jacket|

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. Copyright 2021 Booklist Reviews.
The thrillers of Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child "stand head and shoulders above their rivals" (Publishers Weekly). Preston and Child's Relic and The Cabinet of Curiosities were chosen by readers in a National Public Radio poll as being among the one hundred greatest thrillers ever written, and Relic was made into a number-one box office hit movie. They are coauthors of the famed Pendergast series and their recent novels include Crooked River, Verses for the Dead, City of Endless Night, and The Obsidian Chamber. In addition to his novels, Douglas Preston writes about archaeology for The New Yorker and National Geographic magazines. Lincoln Child is a Florida resident and former book editor who has published seven novels of his own, including bestsellers such as Full Wolf Moon and Deep Storm.
