Alligators, bullets, and a sinkhole contribute to a nerve-wracking finish. Readers will love the quirky characters in this clever yarn. Pendergast and Coldmoon make an excellent pair.-- "Kirkus Reviews (starred review)"
Narrator Rene Auberjonois brings an acerbic delivery and deliberate pacing to his performance, encapsulating the tension between the two agents...Auberjonois, best known for his work on the Star Trek series Deep Space Nine, draws the listener into the engaging thriller with a knowing and friendly tone. Fans will revel in the back-and-forth between the partners and enjoy the shocking climax and take-down of the killer. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.-- "AudioFile"
Pendergast is every bit the modern equivalent of Sherlock Holmes and Hercule Poirot. And his investigative skills have never been sharper than in the altogether brilliant Verses for the Dead...A throwback to classic crime fiction while maintaining a sharp, postmodern edge.-- "Providence Journal"
Readers unfamiliar with Pendergast will find this novel a fantastic launch point. He's a modern-day Sherlock Holmes, and the story reads like classic literature.-- "Associated Press"
