Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child’s latest Gideon Crew novel, Gideon’s Corpse, is good pulp fiction but not a terribly deep story. Like too many action movies this story jumps from one implausible episode to another. I suspect that there are publisher deadlines in the background requiring a new Preston/Child novel on a regular schedule. Books like Gideon’s Corpse are the result of trying to fit creative work into a set schedule.
