'Still Life With Crows'
By: Lincoln Child, Douglas Preston
(Hardcover / 480 Pages / Warner Books / ISBN: 0446531421 / $25.95)

Description:New York Times bestselling authors Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child return with a suspenseful midwest Gothic thriller about a serial killer who terrorizes a small town. Medicine Creek, Kansas, has been slowly dying for the last century. In a town where nothing changes, the community is terrified after a series of grisly murders takes place. Even more alarming, the bodies are displayed in bizarre tableaus. With the entire town in shock, FBI Agent Pendergast arrives from New Orleans to investigate.

Verdict: 'Still Life With Crows' was a very captivating read and kept me on the edge of my seat for the last half of the book! I have not read all books by Preston and Child, but this reminded me most of Relic because of the creepy atmosphere and excellent chase scene finale. The authors are very skilled writers and bring alive the town of Medicine Creek, Kansas with the summer heat, rural town life and claustrophobic cornfields. Agent Pendergast is an excellent character and the writers obviously have fun with him (also in 'Relic,' 'Reliquary' and 'Cabinet of Curiosities'). Avid fans of these authors will also find a few references to previous works! All together I would recommend this book to any readers that enjoy suspense/thriller books. If you are squeamish it is a little gory at times with the descriptions of the murder scenes. But I really enjoyed the novel and the time I got to spend with these characters!
