I read this novel in 2022 as I happened on to "Relic" (Pendergast/P,C#1) last year. Loved the earlier 4 novels but was very disappointed with Brimstone due to the lack of finish. I thought the Pendergast series , to this point (Brimstone) was generally, wonderfully entertaining. However, the ending here is no ending, just a tease for the next book. A little tease is OK but to leave the main character in jeopardy is not OK by me. I hate to down grade some of my recent favorites, but must. If you want to try a Preston and Childs, read "Relic" first. I may read the next in line but I fear these guys sit on the beach, drink a few and have ghost writers finish it off. Hope not!
