Diverted on their way home after their last case, Agents Pendergast and Coldmoon, are sent to Savannah, Georgia to examine two very bizarre murders. Both bodies are completely drained of blood and the locals fear the legendary Savannah Vampire is roaming their streets. This was a riveting thriller which weaves into it a possible answer to a famous FBI case that has been unsolved for decades. I especially enjoyed the descriptions of Savannah, a charming Southern town filled with ghosts. Once again, Preston & Child had me captivated into the early morning hours reluctant to put down this book!— Lisa
Agent Pendergast faces his most unexpected challenge yet when bloodless bodies begin to appear in Savannah, GA, in this installment of a #1 New York Times bestselling series.
A fabulous heist:
On the evening of November 24, 1971, D. B. Cooper hijacked Flight 305—Portland to Seattle—with a fake bomb, collected a ransom of $200,000, and then parachuted from the rear of the plane, disappearing into the night…and into history.
A brutal crime steeped in legend and malevolence:
Fifty years later, Agent Pendergast takes on a bizarre and gruesome case: in the ghost-haunted city of Savannah, Georgia, bodies are found with no blood left in their veins—sowing panic and reviving whispered tales of the infamous Savannah Vampire.
A case like no other:
As the mystery rises along with the body count, Pendergast and his partner, Agent Coldmoon, race to understand how—or if—these murders are connected to the only unsolved skyjacking in American history. Together, they uncover not just the answer…but an unearthly evil beyond all imagining.

In addition to his novels, Preston writes about archaeology for The New Yorker and National Geographic magazines.
