The Bottom Line: Literary comfort food for fans of Preston & Child’s Agent Pendergast series.
Sick with grief, Pendergast’s ward, Constance, retreats to her chambers beneath the family mansion at 891 Riverside Drive, only to be taken captive by a shadowy figure from the past.
The old familiar characters keep coming, as Proctor, Pendergast’s longtime bodyguard, springs to action, chasing Constance’s kidnapper through cities, across oceans, and into wastelands unknown.
And by the time Proctor discovers the truth, a terrifying engine has stirred.
It may already be too late.
We all know that it isn’t, of course, but fans wouldn’t have it any other way. Overall, The Obsidian Chamber is another solid outing from two of the genre’s masters.
