Crooked River

Crooked River by Douglas Preston & Lincoln Child Book Summary

Racing to uncover the mystery of several severed feet found floating in the Gulf of Mexico, Agent Pendergast is faced with the most inexplicable challenge of his career in this installment of the #1 New York Times bestselling series.
A startling crime with dozens of victims.


Appearing out of nowhere to horrify the quiet resort town of Sanibel Island, Florida, dozens of identical, ordinary-looking shoes float in on the tide and are washed up on the tropical beach--each one with a crudely severed human foot inside.

A ghastly enigma with no apparent solution.


Called away from vacation elsewhere in the state, Agent Pendergast reluctantly agrees to visit the crime scene--and, despite himself, is quickly drawn in by the incomprehensible puzzle. An early pathology report only adds to the mystery. With an ocean of possibilities confronting the investigation, no one is sure what happened, why, or from where the feet originated. And they desperately need to know: are the victims still alive?

A worthy challenge for a brilliant mind.
In short order, Pendergast finds himself facing the most complex and inexplicable challenge of his career: a tangled thread of evidence that spans seas and traverses continents, connected to one of the most baffling mysteries in modern medical science. Through shocking twists and turns, all trails lead back to a powerful adversary with a sadistic agenda and who--in a cruel irony--ultimately sees in Pendergast the ideal subject for their malevolent research.

- Crooked River1 star

~Truly, one of the worst plots and worst books I’ve ever read. But shame on me because I finished it. And I’ve enjoyed most other Pendergast books.

- Best of the series5 star

Was a fan of the Pendergast books from the beginning, they lagged a little lately...but this book puts it back on track.

- Intriguing Case5 star

5 stars because it is a great read, one that is hard to put down and as usual at the very end you demand more.This case is not as far fetched or dark as previous cases, so depending on your expectations this could have an impact on how your rate. I found that while reading I was creating my own investigation chart to determine what needed to be discovered to ultimately determine 'who done it', 'why', and answer the question 'will justice prevail?'

- Best to keep your toes out of this river1 star

I have read all of the Pendergast books - some obviously are better than others. The better ones, in my opinion, involve something otherworldly. And the worst ones involve just solving a crime. This is their worst book. It involves cliche out of control ex-military, characters doing things that don’t fit what they could possibly know to do, and a scooby doo reveal of a criminal at the end that is laughable but would have made a better focus to the story. I found myself skipping pages at a time with the end result realizing that I should have skipped more. I’ve said enough, but I will add that this is the first time I have noticed some of the writing to be lazy and taking the reader for granted. A situation involving a gang member that writes super hero comics that he hopes will become a movie and a prisoner that just happens to know a movie producer in town just seems like a lazy improv trick to get to the next chapter. And it is - but you won’t care because it helps keep the ride up the crooked river as short as possible.

- Never got past second chapter1 star

I was looking forward to reading this book until the main character shot and killed his own dog. I’m done with this author.

- Title4 star

I have read all the Pendergast novels. Spoiler alert, the title gives away too much. And Constance is smart enough to untie a cleated rope! Otherwise a great read!
