To the department's chagrin, O'Shaughnessy is much too helpful and becomes a boon to Pendergast and Kelly.
The Cabinet of Curiosities
The copycat murders continue, moving ever closer to the museum. A horrific murder is discovered in the museum's basement, and with each clue Pendergast uncovers, he has the sensation that someone is following his trail.
Strangely, the evidence points towards the same person who committed the gruesome crimes over a century ago.
Pendergast's great-grand uncle Antoine Leng Pendergast a. Enoch Leng is revealed as the serial killer who stole his victim's spinal columns in an attempt to produce an elixir enabling him to prolong life. He succeeded, and survives into the late 20th century, until he himself is killed by the copycat killer, revealed to be Anthony Fairhaven, who tracked Enoch Leng to his mansion on Riverside Drive.
Pendergast arrives to rescue Nora and Smithback from Fairhaven's captivity, but takes a severe bullet wound and is disarmed by Fairhaven. Fairhaven has been searching the mansion for the formula, and is excited when Pendergast, trying to escape, finds the entrance to a secret laboratory, where he is puzzled to see a collection of toxic plants and insects, along with an esoteric collection of costumes and antique weaponry.
On a whim, Fairhaven decides to use an axe from the collection, instead of Pendergast's gun, to execute Pendergast. A few moments later, when Nora rushes into the room, she sees Pendergast alive and Fairhaven on the floor, writhing in agony.
In Leng's mind, the best way to save humanity would be to exterminate it, so he was experimenting with a variety of deadly poisons and delivery systems.

The fourth category framed the limits of the human spirit and technique and lead collectors to seek after objects of wood, ivory or horn, that were astonishingly complex and perfect. The last category is the one of the cabinets of historically significant personalities that were also on the centre of interest and the objects associated to them , such as portraits, prizes.
The main objective of the collectors and scientists was to understand the nature in its most exquisite and rare forms, to decode its secrets. Only later the Enlightenment encyclopaedists will be preoccupied by an holistic approach of the animal, vegetal and mineral kingdom, including the most banal species.
The scientific contribution of the cabinets can be appreciated in several levels: we should distinguish the level of demystification, of contact with the scientific community and of the opening to the public. Firstly, the cabinets were the places where the demystification of the wonders of nature occurred Findlen, Ulisse Aldrovandi , an Italian naturalist and the moving force behind Bologna's botanical garden, was part of the tendency that dominated the 16th and 17th century of normalising the marvellous and he was given the name Bolognese Aristotle.
He held conferences around his spectacular cabinet comprising some specimens of the diversit di cose naturali, and showed his erudition as well as medical examination on animals, having as guests representatives of the pope, such as the archbishop, senators and his colleagues : he considered his scientific experiments as a civic spectacle that would bring the natural truth to the great public.
Aldrovandi situated himself as collector in medias res : a man who maintained the balance between the nature and its human interpretation through the stage of his cabinet.
In addition, the cabinets were open to the scientific community, through visits and several publications. The professor of medicine Olaus Worm developed his collection of natural objects from , which he used as studying material for his students in natural philosophy, as did Aldrovandi.
Worm published the four volumes of his opus Museum Wormanium.
This is not a simple catalogue presenting his cabinet : far beyond a simple description, Worm put forward an analysis of the history of the objects of his collection, which were precisely illustrated by painters under Worms instructions. He recreated an hierarchical order of the nature, by analysing the different scales of mineral elements stones , incects, animals and the human.
Lastly, the great public was also invited to testify on the microcosm of nature. The cabinets of curiosities of Luigi Ferdinando Marsili consisted of specialised natural objects only, since he disapproved of the mixture of natural and artificial objects.
His cabinet was an instrument of knowledge. For Marsili, the academic and didactic role of the collection was to reconstitute the order of the nature and to include even the most humble and common elements, that could lead to this path.
This organisation and taxonomy classifies him among the first to predict the organisation of the museums of the 18th century. During the 18th century, the universities and academies gained power, the research is praised and the clerisy were involved in the social, political and economical reform of the state Burke, The rise of the museums is not only a response to the research and the curiosity, but also an attempt to control the crisis of knowledge following the massive import of objects from America, China and other expedition destinations.
During the Enlightenment, the scientists re-edited the historiography of their discipline Findlen, : natural history began with the 18th century transition from cabinets of curiosities to museums, since the latter formed an institutionalised and appropriate to common standards of taxonomy collection.
