This is an excellent book. One of six book by the same authors I've read lately. You know how it is. You read a book and really like the way the author, or in this cause authors, think so you go on a reading binge.
Book of the Dead is another tale anchored by Special Agent Aloysius Pendergast of the FBI and his evil brother Diogenes. It includes the usual cast of characters. It would be better to read the books featuring Pendergast and his crew in order. For the Diogenes books that would be Brimstone, Dance of Death, and Book of the Dead. All excellent and hard to put down. Highly recommended.
