New York seems to have a rather spectacular problem. People are literally going up in flames at the drop of a hat. Not only that, but we also learn somewhat of Pendergast’s brother.
This book had a terrific case. The characters were well developed. The only odd thing is how the NYPD seems to forget every weird case they’ve had prior to this one. No one seems to want to look into the odd circumstances of the case, besides Pendergast and D’Agosta.
My favorite part was this: “To his right, a bunch of Satanists wearing what looked like medieval robes were drawing pentagrams on the sidewalk and chanting. To his left, a group of nuns were praying on their rosaries.” – Brimstone. It appeared to me, that one side was trying to call up Satan, and the other side was trying to push him back.
The book was well enjoyable to me.
