Tras un horrible enfrentamiento en las costas de Exmouth, Massachusset, el agente especial Pendergast desaparece sin dejar rastro y los rumores de su muerte no tardan en extenderse. Destrozada, Constance busca refugio en los antiguos aposentos de la mansión familiar, el número 891 de Riverside Drive, donde una oscura figura del pasado aguarda para capturarla.

This is a solid 2nd book in the Gideon Crew series. Beginning immediately after the completion of his first mission for Eli Glinn and the mysterious Effective Engineering Solutions, Crew is sent to stop a co-worker from killing a family in a hostage situation. He helps to bring a less-than-effective end to that standpoint but does find out that there's more to the bizarre story than what's on the surface.
Crew learns that the co-worker is part of a terrorist plot to set off a nuclear blast in Washington, DC.
The rest of the story is a non-stop thriller with numerous plot twists that ends in a satisfying conclusion. I don't need to give away any details because plenty of reviews before mine do that. Just be ready for a great story with plenty of interesting characters.

Regardless of which Preston & Child series you like (Pendergast or this one, Gideon Crew), these two authors deliver the goods. In the opening book in the Crew series, a new protagonist is introduced (Gideon Crew) who is as likeable as he is unlike Agent Pendergast.
Crew is recruited for a dangerous op by Eli Glinn, the leader of the mysterious Effective Engineering Solutions (EEG). Crew is hired to recover a dangerous weapon that could endanger the entire world before operatives from competing nations get to it first.
The novel moves along without lags as the authors keep us enthralled in a believable plot. Several interesting characters are introduced to add to the mystery. Plus, a great plot twist adds real spice 3/4th of the way through the book.
I'm glad I picked this up and will continue with book two in the series, Gideon's Corpse.

A las nueve y veinte de la noche llaman al timbre de la residencia neoyorquina del agente especial Aloysius Pendergast, y la fiel Constance Greene acude a abrir. En el umbral aparece Alban, el hijo de Pendergast, cuyo cuerpo atado con cuerdas gruesas cae estrepitosamente al suelo. Está muerto. Su padre sale a la calle y persigue sin éxito a un sospechoso coche negro. Un informe dictaminará más tarde que el cadáver no presentaba signos de violencia, ni restos de alcohol o drogas. A Alban le partieron el cuello en un crimen planeado al detalle e impecablemente ejecutado, obra de profesionales.

Al día siguiente el teniente Peter Angler, encargado del caso, habla con el padre de la víctima y su actitud le desconcierta: Pendergast le informa de que apenas tenía relación con su hijo, se declara incapaz de especular sobre las causas del crimen y aparentemente no tiene interés en cooperar con la investigación policial. Pero, en cuanto llega a casa, Pendergast accede a la base de datos de homicidios no resueltos y localiza los resultados de ADN del llamado Asesino de los Hoteles, cuya brutalidad mantuvo en vilo a Manhattan hace año y medio. Solo tiene una pista: la gema encontrada en el estómago de la víctima.
