Extraction Douglas Preston & Lincoln Child Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars
In this spellbinding short story from two #1 New York Times bestselling authors, a young Pendergast must protect his brother from a sinister New Orleans legend.
In New Orleans' French Quarter, the Tooth Fairy isn't a benevolent sprite who slips money under your pillow at night....he's a mysterious old recluse who must be appeased with teeth--lest he extract retribution. When young Diogenes Pendergast loses a tooth, however, his skeptical older brother Aloysius is determined to put the legend to the test...with dire consequences.
*Includes a special preview chapter of Preston & Child's new full-length novel TWO GRAVES, available December 11, 2012.

User reviews about this book
Waste of Time
I love the Pendergast books, but even for 99cents, it wasn't worth it.
This is a nice short story - but way too short to be worth the price. Half the pages are legalese and advertising for Preston & Child.
By Lizard hunter
This book is not as long as the description states. It is very short. Half of the book is devoted as a preview of the next Pendergrast novel. Save your .99 and don't bother reading such a short, boring story. I'm very disappointed.
Wow! Really good.
This was kind of a cross between a short story and a novelette. A little longer than a short, maybe a little shorter than a novelette. I sat outside in my carport, smoked a cigar, drank coffee and about after an hour or so, I finished what I would call a good old traditional "ghost story". Very well, written, characters well defined. Beginning, middle, and satisfying end. Real good job.
Unhappy Reader, where are the 128 pages?
Something is very wrong with this Purchase, as it informs the buyer of purchasing a 128 page Short Story.....
Where is the last 100 pages?
This has left me frustrated, as I was engaged in reading a 128 page Pendergast Short story, but it ended in 20 pages.
Negative Experience for me.....poor decision to release this way!
While I understand it's a short story, it is too short. The ending feels chopped, like there is more that could be there. Otherwise, it feels like a typical Pendergast story, which is a good thing.
Deceptive yet entertaining
Change the price to 9 cents. It's a twenty page ghost story for Pete's sake! Was a fun read though and got me primed for the next Pendergast!
Not worth the price or pre ordering.
