City of Endless Night (Pendergast #17)

When the first decapitated corpse was found in a Queens garage, it seemed like just a “routine” murder in New York City. However, when the next victim was found, the press is convinced someone is targeting the ultra-rich. Pendergast is pulled into the case by his NYPD friend, Vincent D’Agosta. Can Pendergast determine the motive of the person committing the crimes?

Missing the paranormal backstory of Pendergast, Constance and Procter entirely, the first 3/4 of City of Endless Night seems like an effective and intriguing police procedural. However, the excellent twist towards the end quickly propels this plot to 5 stars. City of Endless Night‘s evocative scene-setting compels an executive producer somewhere to make a great movie from this book. I can’t wait! City of Endless Night is recommended for all thriller lovers. It is a great ride well worth the read!

Thanks to the publisher, Grand Central, and NetGalley for an advanced copy.
