Preston & Child - Blue Labyrinth
A long-buried family secret resurfaces when one of Aloysius Pendergast's
most implacable enemies shows up on his doorstep as a murdered corpse.
The mystery has all the hallmarks of the perfect murder, save for an
enigmatic clue: a piece of turquoise lodged in the stomach of the
deceased. The gem leads Pendergast to an abandoned mine on the shore of
California's desolate Salton Sea, which in turn propels him on a journey
of discovery deep into his family's sinister past. But Pendergast
learns there is more at work than a ghastly episode of family history:
he is soon stalked by a subtle killer bent on vengeance over an ancient
transgression. In short order, Pendergast is caught in a wickedly clever
plot, which will leave him stricken in mind and body...and may well end
with his death.
