Douglas Preston '78's Latest Thriller Hits New York Times Bestseller List
The Wheel of Darkness, the latest in the series of thrillers written by Douglas Preston '78 and Lincoln Child, has landed on the New York Times and other bestseller lists.
In the tale, FBI special agent Aloysius Pendergast visits a Tibetan monastery from which a mysterious relic has been stolen. The quest to get it back leads him on a cruise ship voyage wrought with danger and death. Eighth in a series, The Wheel of Darkness recently reached No. 2 on the New York Times hardcover fiction list and now is at No. 4. The book made it to No. 1 on Publishers Weekly's list.
Preston's brother, Richard Preston '76, also is a well-known writer (The Hot Zone, The Cobra Event) and Pomona College alumnus. His most recent non-fiction book, The Wild Trees, was a New York Times bestseller, too.
