    The narrator did not get the voice of the main character right. In previous books I really enjoyed hearing the southern charm of the main character.

    Preposterous. Get off your soapbox and stick to storytelling. Utterly stupid ending. Narrator needs to listen to previous books and get the accent right for Pendergast.

    I gave this review two stars because I liked the narrator. However, I found this story silly and tiresome, especially the last two discs. I've always enjoyed the Pendergast stories, but this one was just too bizarre.

    I felt the story was hokey and a bit slow in the beginning. Agent Pendergast was lacking in his savvy and clever ways that I enjoy most. Pendergast's spiritual journey by meditating with Constantine ruined it for me. I did enjoy that the mystery was on a cruise ship and the narrator was very good.

    The Wheel of Darkness was a thrilling ride! I would sit in the driveway and listen to it for 20 minutes when I came home. I thought the concept was inventive.

    The Pendergast series are among my favorite detective series. I loved the book and especially the narrator, Rene Auberjonois has a great voice and does both female and male voices as well as accents extremely well. However this was the abridged version and I felt some of the complexity of the characters was lost. I will definitely look for the unabridged book. I really hope there will be a sequel to the book, even so the ending seemed to indicate differently.
