Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child’s Reliquary – Pendergast 2

Pendergast strikes again. And is as mysterious as he was in the first.

“Reliquary” takes place about eighteen months after “Relic.” A couple of bodies are fished out of the Hudson with signs similar of the “Museum Beast” killings. It becomes a race against time to stop the perpetrator, or perpetrators.

Smithback seems to have lost some of his humanity in this novel. But it could just as easily be a form of tunnel-vision. Pendergast shows a few more of his tricks in this one. Particularly, his chameleon-like way of slipping in unobstructed. Margo’s hesitancy is well felt by the end of the book. I rather enjoyed it. Even if there were bodies stacked like firewood in this one.
