I think that Agent Pendergast is an interesting character. The Pendergast series, to me, are much more enjoyable as audiobooks than in the printed format. The readers who perform them bring them to life. In this particular title, plays out against the sibling rivalry that exists between FBI Agent Pendergast and his evil brother Diogenes. One keeps waiting for revelations as to how they came to be so diametrically opposites.

I recently discovered the series and was hooked from the beginning. Ever since I have been trying to read the whole series.

"In this conclusion of the trilogy that started with Brimstone, Agent Aloysius Pendergast is imprisoned, framed for murders committed by his disturbed brother Diogenes, whose singular aim is to destroy Aloysius. At the same time, the NY Museum of Natural History, caught in an embarrassing PR situation, decides to unveil an ancient Egyptian tomb that just happens to be plagued with a curse of insanity. These and other plot points combine to create a story that Kirkus Reviews calls 'fast, punchy, and relentlessly action-packed.'"
