In Fever Dream, Special Agent Pendergast is putting to rest long-ignored possessions reminiscent of his wife Helen's tragic death, only to make a stunning-and dreadful-discovery. Helen had been mauled by an unusually large and vicious lion while they were big game hunting in Africa. But now, Pendergast learns that her rifle-her only protection from the beast-had been deliberately loaded with blanks. Who could have wanted Helen dead...and why?

With Lieutenant Vincent D'Agosta's assistance, Pendergast embarks on a quest to uncover the mystery of his wife's murder. It’s a journey that sends him deep into her past where he learns much that Helen herself had wished to keep hidden. Helen Pendergast had nursed a secret obsession with the famed naturalist-painter John James Audubon, in particular a long-lost painting of his known as the Black Frame.

As Pendergast probes more deeply into the riddle—the answer to which is revealed in a night of shocking violence deep in the Louisiana bayou—he finds himself faced with an even greater question: who was the woman he married?

Douglas Preston’s solo novels include Jennie, which was made into a movie by Disney, Impact, The Codex, Ribbons of Time, The Royal Road, Talking to the Ground, Cities of Gold, Dinosaurs in the Attic and the New York Times bestsellers Tyrannosaur Canyon and Blasphemy. Preston is also the author of The Monster of Florence (along with Mario Spezi).
