Waiting on Wednesday #105: Crimson Shore by Preston and Child

"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly event hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine where we spotlight upcoming releases we are eagerly anticipating.

This week the book I am waiting on is Crimson Shore by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child. It's number 15 in the Pendergast series. It's due to be published November 10, 2015 by Grand Central Publishing. The first two chapters are available on their website.

Synopsis via
Special Agent Pendergast takes on a private case in Exmouth, Massachusetts-an ancient village on the coast north of Salem-to investigate the theft of a valuable wine cellar. He travels to the seaside town with his ward, Constance Greene, where they quickly discover something far more sinister: a bricked-up niche in the wine cellar that held the remains of a man, tortured and then entombed alive 150 years ago. But why? The puzzle is compounded when they discover a murdered body covered with mysterious symbols in the salt marshes behind Exmouth...the place where, legend has it, the real witches of Salem took refuge after fleeing the 1692 witch hunts...

Why am I waiting on it? I've found that I enjoy this series. I like reading about the history of Salem and I'm wondering how much of a role it will play in what happens in the book. And I've liked the paranormal aspects to the stories in other novels in the series.

What book are you waiting on this week? Leave it or a link in the comments so we can check it out. Happy reading!
