Fast-Moving Thriller

Finished June 15
Cemetery Dance by Douglas Preston & Lincoln Child
This is the first book I've read by this duo and I found it a quick read despite being over 400 pages. The action just pulled me along, and I found myself finishing it in only a few hours.
When journalist Bill Smithback is violently killed in his own apartment, all the witnesses agree on the identity of the killer, another resident of the building, Colin Fearing. The problem is that Fearing was found dead ten days earlier, an apparent suicide. Smithback's wife Nora Fearing is attacked again, and now finds herself wondering just what is behind it, determined to get to the bottom of the intrigue. NYPD Lieutenant Vincent D'Agosta, a friend of Smithback's is on the case and also determined to find the truth. He is joined by FBI Special Agent Pendergast, who has an interesting background and esoteric skills. The two of them work together to get to the bottom of the case. From zombiis to religious cults, from animal cruelty to investigative journalism, the action never stops.
