The Wheel of Darkness is by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child. The eighth book in the Pendergast series. Pendergast takes Constance to an ancient Tibetan monastery to heal after her encounter with Diogenes. While there, the monks tell him an ancient artifact has been stolen. He must recover it before it destroys the world. Pendergast and Constance track the thief to the maiden voyage of the world's largest and most elegant ocean liner. When people begin to be murdered aboard the ship, Pendergast and Constance fear the power of the Agozyen may have already been evoked. Fans of the series will find this installment exciting, even though some of the characters we have loved in the other books in the series are missing in this one.
