I've to date read three Pendergast horror-fiction-mystery novels. The three seem to have a common denominator- fantastic exotic beasts and where to find them. In this one, which is a hot-paced thriller, museum visitors are killed in a violent manner by.... something that is initially difficult to explain. Detective D'Agosta of the NYC police department is later joined by Pendergast, an FBI agent whose interest in the case is based upon similar killings in his home district in New Orleans. The tale starts out in the Amazon jungles where a tribe is wiped out by development, and an archeological expedition mysteriously disappears. Except that a relic from such tribe is taken from its resting place, placed in voyage, and eventually winds up in the Museum of Natural History. A gala featuring such relic is scheduled, despite the grizzly murders. From the scene of the gala opening of the exhibit to the finish, the authors take us on a thrill rode featuring trapped visitors trying to escape in unmapped tunnels, attempts to kill off the monster, all treated in such a manner that is way over the top! This is not the sort of book one reads during a relaxing time at the beach! After having read the synopsis of the movie, which deleted Pendergast and changes the venue to Chicago from NYC, I would say the book version is far more interesting and provocative. Worth reading- if you dare!

Agent Pendergast is the perfect Southern Gentleman! But he is also an FBI agent with a score to settle! This character, along with Lieutenant D'Agusta and the others that make this tale come to life, establish a reality that is hard to find in works of this type. One walks right there beside them every step of the way as they explore the mystery of the Museum Beast. One of the best reads of my life!

I read this book sometime in the late 90s when it first came out. I know I enjoyed the story and all the scientific talk, plus the characters were well-fleshed out and likable. However, I read it on the train while I commuted to work and the full flavor of the story didn't sink in. Since then I have read all the books these two fine authors have produced.

Fast forward 17 to 18 years and I have read this book again, this time using the convenience of the Amazon Kindle reader. This time it took me only a couple of days to read it and I love the rich atmosphere and the fast-paced story with all its suspense.

I guess now I will have to re-purchase all the other books from these authors in the series and re-read them. Yum!

This first entry in what has become a legendary saga of stories featuring Special Agent Pendergast is an exciting story of genetics gone mad. I first read this back in the 90s, but found the story exciting even now. The authors are masters at creating everyday types that are easy to relate to - most of us have encountered the officious, the geek, the conscientious to a fault, the thinker, and that guy who simply seizes every opportunity to promote himself. Oh, and those who can see right through them. Great read!

It's no Crichton, but Preston & Child's RELIC is a genuinely spooky mix of the techno-thriller and horror genres. When several gruesome killings occur at the NY Museum of Natural History, a group of researchers and a super cool FBI Agent named Pendergast team up to get to the bottom of the mystery before the launch of a big new exhibition.

In addition to genre thrills, the novel also provides interesting insight on the inner workings of the museum. Douglas Preston actually worked at the real museum in real life and this adds an extra layer of plausibility to the story. The characters were interesting and despite being a long book it moves at a brisk pace. The final twist came as quite a surprise.

This is my second time reading this series. I have followed Preston and Child's for many years and have finally started over with the first book. There is a quirkiness in these books that keeps me reading passages slowly as I try to follow the storyline. Although I am a voracious reader there are only a handful of authors I find to be truly entertaining, present company included. I have read other reviews that complain about the convoluted cast of characters who seem to die and return to life at the whim of the authors but I think it's all about entertainment!

Thetalune
Fantastic work of fiction, incorporating so many different characters and storylines, especially considering the entire narrative pretty much takes place within the museum. Reading this novel feels like watching a movie - the authors successfully create suspense, horror, and intrigue throughout the novel that will prevent you from being able to put it down. The story behind the monster is complex, and elevates the novel from mere horror story to a rich narrative that will interest anyone who enjoys science, natural history, genetics, or academia. In my opinion, the story has the perfect amount of fantasy while trying to ground the origins of the monster in potential scientific explanations. Don't miss the epilogue ;)
