Cemetery Dance is a book about zombies, murders, and greed. It is a good Agent Pendergast story. The story is very entertaining, scary and just good. One asks oneself how do Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child even come up with such consistently good stories? The book is not quite perfect so it only received four stars in this review. ( )

Special Agent Pendergast and Lieutenant D'Agosta work together to solve the heinous murder of their longtime friend, NY Times writer, Bill Smithback. A tale involving an insulated religious sect, voodoo, zombies, animal sacrifice, and greed, centered in a park on the north tip of Manhattan. ( )

Lovely characters and heart-wrenching emotions. You know, the usual. ( )

Zombies. VooDoo. Animal sacrifices. A violent cult. Cemetery Dance, book #9 in the Agent Pendergast series, has a little bit of everything. And once again it is a brilliantly creepy tale.

Two of Agent Pendergast's cohorts -- William Smithback and Nora Kelly -- are celebrating their anniversary when they are brutally attacked in their New York apartment. Witnesses are able to identify the assailant. The only problem is the suspect died three weeks before the attack. Soon Pendergast and Lieutenant Vincent D'Agosta are investigating a cult operating in an old abandoned church, amid rumors of murderous zombies. Then a dead man kills a woman in a room crowded with reporters and local media. Are the dead coming back to life to stalk the living? And is the cult behind it all?

I listened to an audiobook version of this novel, narrated by Scott Brick. He reads at a nice pace, and was easily understood. I have some hearing loss, but was easily able to hear and understand him easily.

I enjoyed the voodoo (or Vodou, as Pendergast points out in the book) and zombie killer cult slant of this story. Zombies are about as trope-y as vampires....but I enjoyed the use of re-animated corpses as murderers. A little bit different from most zombie tales. The story has lots of action, some grisly moments and lots of twists & turns. The ending was action-packed and thrilling as usual. Very enjoyable thriller. I love this series & I'm happily moving on to the next book. :)

If you watched the two movies based on early books in this series.....try the books instead. The movies didn't to the characters justice at all. Too many changes to the stories too. The books are much better -- as usual. :) ( )

I am starting to get to the 'enough is enough' point with the Pendergast novels. This is book nine in the series and it was too over-the-top.

Generally, I am pretty open to just about anything, including the un-dead (aka. Zombies) but this book just had too much of everything. The story was about 100 pages too long, had WAY too much detail in areas that didn't require it, areas that weren't important to the overall outcome of the story and it didn't have enough details in the areas that, I felt, deserved it. Also, I felt like the story was too jumpy... just when I was getting into a particular character/part of the story, it would flip to a different part and I would have to get into THAT part again. Ugg... sometimes that can be annoying!

However, for all the negative, there were some good parts... I really did enjoy the climax scenes in the book. The fight/the rescue, all great!! It became a page turner as the book neared the end and as a result, I will be adding book 10 to my 'to-be-read' list.

Overall, if you have read the books in this series, you will probably want to pick this one up as well but if you haven't, your life will go on without adding this one to your bookshelf!
