Crooked River

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Lincoln Child, Douglas Preston

Narrated By: Jefferson Mays

Publisher: Hachette Book Group USA

Date: February 2020

Duration: 13 hours 3 minutes


Racing to uncover the mystery of several light green-shoe-clad 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 NYT bestselling series.

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.


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?


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.

    Again Special Agent Pendergast assisted by his lovely fearless ward Theresa and couragous Agent Coldmoon and shows his great skills in solving a heavy crime.

  • Ron H.

    Seldom do Lincoln and. Child disappoint with AXL Pendergast.

    Fantastic one of their better books

  • Griffen S.

    WOW!! This lived up to everything you want from a Pendergast novel, including a clean link to the next book. What’s not to love about that! What made it so great for me? Great plot and subplot. Settings deep and well developed. But the best? Constance was a major character. And Agent Coldmoon, a fabulous character from the Lonely Hearts case, was a major player here again. Hopefully future novels provide platforms for more of them both. Lastly. I wondered who would ever take on the mantle of narration after the loss to cancer of Rene Auberjenois, narrator par excellence of so many Pendergast novels. I doubted. I was wrong. Jefferson Mays is a brilliant narrator. May he settle into this series for a long time.

    Absolutely AWESOME! I’ve read every book collaboration by Lincoln and Child. But for the previous installment, they all for the most part, are exceptional pieces of work! Can’t get enough of Constance and Alloysius. MOST EXCELLENT!
