Publisher's Summary

The Cabinet of Curiosities: Booktrack Edition adds an immersive musical soundtrack to your audiobook listening experience!

In an ancient tunnel underneath New York City, a charnel house is discovered.

Inside are 36 bodies - all murdered and mutilated more than a century ago.

While FBI agent Pendergast investigates the old crimes, identical killings start to terrorize the city.

The nightmare has begun.

Again.

Booktrack is an immersive format that pairs traditional audiobook narration to complementary music. The tempo and rhythm of the score are in perfect harmony with the action and characters throughout the audiobook. Gently playing in the background, the music never overpowers or distracts from the narration, so listeners can enjoy every minute. When you purchase this Booktrack edition, you receive the exact narration as the traditional audiobook available, with the addition of music throughout.

Critic Reviews

"This is an intense and interesting story, entwining the quest for eternal life with the history of America, New York, and present-day politics and influence. Rene Auberjonois crafts his narration with great care; each word is voiced with perfect tone, pitch, and emotion, and each character is provided with a fitting personality. The result is narration that flows beautifully while providing insight into the story and those who inhabit it. Satisfyingly imbued with thrills and suspense, the prose is fully realized in Auberjonois's performance, and he even manages to make some of the more fantastic aspects seem reasonable. A totally engrossing experience." (AudioFile Magazine)

Pendergast Takes Center Stage

This was the third book in the Pendergast series and the first book that takes his character front and center. It was noted that NPR rated this as one of the top thrillers and it definitely lives up to the title. Preston and Child are simply magic together. This is a fantastic thriller with an interesting premise and twists and turns you don't see coming. Nora Kelly replaces Margo Green and throws reporter Smithback into the mix as well. A killer bent on prolonging his life makes for an intriguing thriller, to say anymore would spoil the story. So good I didn't want this to end and enjoyed the thrill ride along the way. Excellent narration by Jonathan Marouz and a subtle Booktrack enhanced the mood. I already have the next book in the series.

Solid narration

I would recommend this. Narrator does a pretty good job. There are 3 or 4 places where a line is repeated but given the length of the book I wouldn't fault that.
