Nonostante Preston & Child siano tra i miei autori preferiti questa volta non riesco a dare più di 3 stelle. La storia è bella come sempre ma manca quesl mistero e quella tensione che di solito c'è nei loro libri. Sembra che abbianno attaccato tante storie tutte insieme però l'amalgama non è venuto molto bene. Speriamo nel prossimo.

Douglas Preston e Lincoln Child non si smentiscono, una bella storia di Pendergast. Questo è il seguito dell'isola della follia non va letto singolarmente.

Preston & Child con Pendergast sono una garanzia.
