Stop me if you can Praised as a “ruthless descendant of Holmes” (Publishers Weekly), Agent Pendergast has become one of crime fiction’s most endearing characters. His greatest enemy is one who has stalked him all of his life, his cunning and diabolical brother Diogenes. And Diogenes has thrown down the gauntlet. The Dance of Death by the German artist Hans Holbein (–) is a great, grim triumph of Renaissance woodblock printing. In a series of action-packed scenes Death intrudes on the everyday lives of thirty-four people from various levels of society — from pope to physician to ploughman.

Combe’s objective was to depict the cheerful and humorous satire of life and its many follies. Nov 05,  · Dance of Death. DOI link for Dance of Death. Dance of Death book.
