Two Graves explores Helen's past and we meet the people who wanted her dead

Two Graves explores Helen's past and we meet the people who wanted her dead. I had thought the series had faultered with all the Helen and Pendergast drama, but this book sums it all up and puts to rest the marriage with all of its complications, implications and secrets. For me, the last book, Cold Vengeance, and this one came together and explained the mystery surrounding Helen and ties it up.

So someone help me get this straight--I'm playing catch-up here. So, Pendergast has a wife but she was killed in Africa by a lion. But she's alive again because, oh wait, it was actually her twin, a sister that we didn't know about, who was killed by a lion trained by Nazi's to only drag her body away--not to eat it. But before she is "killed" the first time she gives birth to a son, then later we find out it wasn't one son but twins! One good son and one bad one. Then, she dies once more--yes, by Nazis again. Meanwhile, Pendergast's ward, a 19 year old beauty--no hold on--she's a actually a 180 year old beauty who killed her own child (fathered by Pendergast's evil brother, Diogenes) by throwing it overboard off the QE2, has just been released from a mental hospital. No, I almost forgot. Her child isn't really dead but is being taken care of by Tibetan monks who believe he is the next incarnation of the Dalai Lama! Then, Pendergast is forced to kill his demented ubber-kid son who is a serial killer in NYC. No, actually the bad son is not really dead yet, just horribly disfigured and mad as hell. But Pendergast does keep his good son to be educated by his 180 year-old ward, Constance, who is just now starting to age. So, in future books (ugh), could we see good brother, bad brother, grow up to be another Aloysius and Diogenes? Corrie becomes the new D'Agosta and Constance becomes the girlfriend of good son but is killed by bad son, but wait, she's really still alive and . . .

Oh how I miss the stand-alones like Riptide, Ice Limit and A Still Life with Crows!

The authors this time have failed to give a book up to the Pendergast standards. They wrecked the agent's usual stalwart personality and made him a wimp from the beginning. The ridiculous, outrageously bazaar activities they give during P's pursuit of his poor son are so over the top that they lend nothing to the story. The incipient malefactors that Pendergast usually runs into are missing. Instead the authors have decided to create such an absurd backstory along with preposterous machinations to go along with it that the entire story of P's wife's demise goes sour. They crushed Pendergast's usual demeanor and made him a miserable wretch. The only saving grace were the other characters' stories - which could have well been other books expanded to include Pendergast. I am sorry I paid good money to buy this one. Disappointment doesn't begin to explain my feelings. After waiting for almost a year and a half for this last of the last trilogy, it could have been much longer - like 900+ pages. This latest Pendergast offering was a very BIG disappointment.

I've read most of the Pendergast novels and have really enjoyed most of them. Basically liked them all. Never disliked one until I read this one. It was a struggle to finish it but I'm a stubborn person. However I'd advise anyone else to spend your time on something else. True, most of these novels require a little suspension of reality, but this one tips over into psychosis. It's not too bad until Chapter 27 when it seems the authors turned the remainder of the writing over to someone who specializes in sci-fi novels. I mean it really goes weird. Our delicate little protagonist seems to get superhuman abilities and we learn that he has more family around than his brother (who may or may not be dead these days). Add in Nazis and zombies and you get a glimpse of just how weird this Pendergast tale is. Skip it and enjoy reading the others in this series.

The reason I love these Pendergast novels so much is they're not mindless action thrillers; they have an element of erudition and sophistication about them. This one has far less so. And the lull between the action, where Pendergast takes illegal drugs and comes very close to killing himself I found to be most out of sync with character. I understand the death in the family put him into a depressive tailspin and there is a history of mental illness in his family but in the past he has always seemed utterly stable and immune to it, someone his friends could really count on. I don't want to ruin the narrative, but let's just say the plot of this book contains certain elements that stretch one's imaginative vs. realistic beliefs just a little too far. There are outstanding Pendergasts and bad Pendergasts, This one was just average. I enjoyed it, but nothing special.
