At the old family manse in Louisiana, Special Agent Pendergast is putting to rest long-ignored possessions reminiscent of his wife Helen's tragic death, only to make a stunning - and dreadful - discovery. Helen had been mauled by an unusually large and vicious lion while they were big game hunting in Africa. But now, Pendergast learns that her rifle - her only protection from the beast - had been deliberately loaded with blanks. Who could have wanted Helen dead...and why?
With Lieutenant Vincent D'Agosta's assistance, Pendergast embarks on a quest to uncover the mystery of his wife's murder. It is a journey that sends him deep into her past where he learns much that Helen herself had wished to keep hidden. Helen Pendergast had nursed a secret obsession with the famed naturalist-painter John James Audubon, in particular a long-lost painting of his known as the Black Frame.
As Pendergast probes more deeply into the riddle - the answer to which is revealed in a night of shocking violence, deep in the Louisiana bayou - he finds himself faced with an even greater question: who was the woman he married?



"Once again, the bestselling authors show they have few peers at creating taut scenes of suspense. Their restraint in the book's early sections make the payoffs all the more compelling." ( Publishers Weekly)

Zum Glück wenigstens im Original noch ungekürzt

Nachdem die deutsche Version der Pendergast Reihe ja seit "The Wheel of Darkness" leider nicht mehr in einer ungekürzten Version veröffentlicht wird, bin ich mit beginnend mit "Cemetery Dance" auf das jeweilige Original umgestiegen. Wer genau wie ich mit einem gekürzten Pendergast nicht zufrieden ist, dem seien die Originalversionen wärmstens empfohlen. Der amerikanische Sprecher Rene Auberjonois ist hervoragend, und ich werde mir das im Deustchen durch das Kürzen verunstaltete "Wheel of Darkness" wohl auch noch einmal in der ungekürzten Originalversion gönnen.
