Preston and Child return with their next deep and dark mystery featuring Special Agent Pendergast, and this may be the creepiest one yet. This time Pendergast, along with Lieutenant Vincent D’Agosta, are investigating a strange series of attacks that soon turn into killings. The problem with the investigation, led by Captain Laura Hayward, is that the few witnesses, as well as camera footage, points to the attacker being someone who was reported dead and buried ten days ago.
As Pendergast and D’Agosta dig deeper and deeper, they find themselves involved in an underbelly of New York never before seen, involving an unknown and sinister cult that specializes in animal sacrifices, employing Obeah and Vôdou. While they don’t want to fully admit it, the attacks look like they are being done by what can only be classed as a zombie. As the city begins to get riled up over this, Pendergast and D’Agosta find themselves caught up in a matter that reaches far back into Manhattan’s early history.
Cemetery Dance will have you turning the page, wanting to get to the end, not just because of the action-filled and faced-paced writing style, but because in your mind you know there’s no such thing as zombies and there has to be a logical explanation for this . . . doesn’t there?
