"Just days before a massive exhibition opens at the popular New York Museum of Natural History, visitors are being savagely murdered in the museum's dark hallways and secret rooms. Autopsies indicate that the killer cannot be human...
But the museum's directors plan to go ahead with a big bash to celebrate the new exhibition, in spite of the murders.
Museum researcher Margo Green must find out who-or what-is doing the killing. But can she do it in time to stop the massacre?"
Relic is the first installment in Pendergast, a mystery series by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child.
This was pretty much what I expected it to be, and I did enjoy it. You set anything in a museum and I am here for it. The novel does go in a weird direction that I wasn't necessarily expecting as I thought this would be more of a pure mystery novel, but I guess not.
Also, for the first entry in a series called Pendergast, there sure aren't a lot of scenes with Pendergast in them.
