When Grace Ozmian, the beautiful and reckless daughter of a wealthy tech billionaire, first goes missing, the NYPD assumes she has simply sped off on another wild adventure. Until the young woman's body is discovered in an abandoned warehouse in Queens, the head nowhere to be found. Lieutenant CDS Vincent D'Agosta quickly takes the lead. He knows his investigation will attract fierce scrutiny, so D'Agosta is delighted when FBI Special Agent A.X.L. Pendergast shows up at the crime scene assigned to the case. But neither Pendergast nor D'Agosta are prepared for what lies ahead. A diabolical presence is haunting the greater metropolitan area, and Grace Ozmian was only the first of many victims to be murdered ... and decapitated. As mass hysteria sets in, stoked by an ambitious tabloid reporter, Pendergast and D'Agosta find themselves in the crosshairs of an opponent who has threatened the very lifeblood of the city. It'll take all of Pendergast's skill to unmask this most dangerous foe -- let alone survive to tell the tale.… (más)

Reasonably good Pendergast novel - not one of their best. Pretty easy to guess the culprit fairly early on. ( )

City of Endless Night, an Agent Pendergast novel was an excellent story, as was expected. The authors may be expected to produce a captivating story but the story warns that you cannot assume anything when knowing people. The book title of the City of Endless Night does seem to fit New York and it fits the storyline. This book is highly recommended for Agent Pendergast fans and thereby worthy of its five star rating.

Very pedestrian. This is little more than a whodunit without much of the magic that made the Pendergast series so special early on.

Here, we get several decapitations in New York City. Lt. D'Agosta is primary on the case of course but Preston/Child use the flimsy idea that the first victim might have crossed state lines as an excuse to get Pendergast involved. Unlike many stories in this series, there's not any real hints of the supernatural in the killings. Granted, most of the killings are of high profile people who have tight (or so they thought) security around them. So there is an element of how did the killer get in, kill, and escape. But again, that's virtually every story in this genre. There's also a completely pointless subplot of a nut who wants to take advantage of these 1%ers dying by encouraging others to destroy their material goods by having a bonfire in the middle of the city. And of course we get the annoying "journalist" Bryce Harriman who decides only he knows the true motive of the killer and writes sensationalist stories to "prove" it. (He may be the most realistic character in the book.)

Pendergast suffers from the same fate as Jack Sparrow: they're such great, unique, quirky characters that you fall in love with them instantly. But, after a few servings, the schtick grows stale. And here, the character is on life support because Preston/Child don't know what to do with him or how to put him in unique situations anymore. After all, this is the 17th story starring the FBI agent.

If you're a fan of the series read it. It's not like it sucks. It's just not special any longer. ( )

I LOVE this series and agent Pendergast is such a mysterious character. City of Endless Night is straight mystery thriller. The "hunt" was nail biting to say the least. But this installment is missing I love about the series. I have not read all the books but at least the recent ones have either some sort of science or unexplained phenomenal. Something! This was cat and mouse. Fun but still missing something very special the series usually have. ( )
