FEVER DREAM:Yesterday, Special Agent Pendergast still mourned the loss of his beloved wife, Helen, who died in a tragic accident in Africa twelve years ago. Today, he discovers she was murdered. Tomorrow, he will learn her most guarded secrets, leaving him to wonder: Who was the woman I married? Why was she murdered? And, above all . . . Who murdered her?Revenge is not sweet: It is essential. COLD VENGEANCE:Devastated by the discovery that his wife, Helen, was murdered, Special Agent Pendergast must have retribution. But revenge is not simple. As he stalks his wife's betrayers--a chase that takes him from the wild moors of Scotland to the bustling streets of New York City and the darkest bayous of Louisiana--he is also forced to dig further into Helen's past. And he is stunned to learn that Helen may have been a collaborator in her own murder. Peeling back the layers of deception, Pendergast realizes that the conspiracy is deeper, goes back generations, and is more monstrous than he could have ever imagined--and everything he's believed, everything he's trusted, everything he's understood . . . may be a horrific lie.Nothing is what it seems. TWO GRAVES:For twelve years, he believed she'd died in an accident. Then, he was told she'd been murdered. Now, FBI Special Agent Aloysius Pendergast discovers that his beloved wife, Helen, is alive. And Pendergast must embark on a furious cross-country chase to rescue her. But all this turns out to be mere prologue to a far larger plot: one that unleashes a chillingly--almost supernaturally--adept serial killer on New York City. His pursuit of the murderer will take Pendergast deep into the trackless forests of South America, to a hidden place where the evil that has blighted both his and Helen's lives lies in wait . . . a place where he will learn all too well the truth of the ancient proverb:Before you embark on a journey of revenge, dig two graves.

"Uncle Reid committed suicide!" Shirley read from an article found in Mother's genealogy records. We looked at each other in amazement as I shouted, "Mother, what happened to Uncle Reid?" A compelling true drama of political corruption, voter fraud and murder focusing on the 1932 Pendergast era in Kansas City, Missouri. Uncle Reid was a courageous and political figure who dared to take on the Pendergast machine! Did Uncle Reid commit suicide or was he another victim of the political machine? Did he uncover ties to the mob and corruption? Did he pose a threat to Tom Pendergast's political machine? Who was the unknown woman in Uncle Reid's life that appeared shortly before his death and disappeared right after he died? Was she a part of a plot against Uncle Reid? We discovered at the Kansas City, Missouri Police Department that suicide records are not kept and that the coroner in 1932 was a Pendergast elected official. No police or coroners records and no living relatives made our quest for answers frustrating. Watch for many twists and turns.
