    Fever Dream could have been a good book The central premise that Pendergast finds out his dead wife was murdered, seeks revenge on her killers, and goes on to discover secrets she kept from him is intriguing, and there are a few good set pieces, such as a car chase through a Louisiana swamp And Preston Child aren t terrible authors I enjoyed the two Diogenes fe...
