Publisher's Summary

Art critic Jeremy Grove is found dead, his face frozen in a mask of terror. His body temperature is grotesquely high; he is discovered in a room barricaded from the inside; the smell of brimstone is everywhere... and the unmistakable imprint of a claw is burned into the wall. As more bodies are discovered - their only connection the bizarre but identical manner of death - the world begins to wonder if the Devil has, in fact, come to collect his due.

Teaming with Police Officer Vincent D'Agosta (The Relic), Agent Pendergast is determined to solve this case that appears to defy everything except supernatural logic.

Prolong the suspense: listen to another Pendergast novel.

    "A little disappointing"

    Listened to Fever Dream first, and this one next. Maybe my expectations were too high, but did not enjoy Brimstone nearly as much. The plot was interesting, but not compelling and I did not like the ending.

    "Where is Renee Auberjonois?"

    A great book, but not a fan of Scott Brick - where is Renee Auberjonois? His Pendergast accent was amazing.

    I love to read to escape. I like to walk in the stores with a good book, browse the mall on a rainy day and people watch while I listen.

    "Marvelous Mystery!"

    These authors have a wonderful way of tossing many stories into the air and managing to keep them all aloft. They do the same with their creatively crafted characters. We have the reappearance of some old friends in this one, along with some new and properly dastardly foes. Preston and Child have conjured up a great mystery that takes us into the darkest depths of ancient evils as we follow our heroes on their international pursuit of truth and justice.

    "Go Pendergast Go!"
    If you could sum up Brimstone in three words, what would they be?

    Really good listen.


    What other book might you compare Brimstone to and why?

    Fever Dream. It is detailed and very articulate and the story take FBI agent Pendergast to a new level.


    What about Scott Brick???s performance did you like?

    He is very good at voices with different characters.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    It is kind of long with the unabridged version, but enjoyable every minute.

    I am an avid listener. I listen between 75-100 hours per month on my iPhone: 60% fiction to 40% non-fiction.

    Story
    "Complex - Pendergast back on track -- Definite Yes"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This novel has added complexities to the main character and built the backstory of the minor characters. In a great thriller series, the backstories are as important of as the plot in any one specific novel. As you get attached to the lesser players, backstory development cements your commitment to overall series. This is why Brimstone was very good and a pleasant change from the last, lackluster installment.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    The plot was far more believable in this installment. You did not have to suspend your judgment of the reality or physics at all. Also, the foreshadowing of the ultimate conclusion was not obvious until you listened to the last word.


    What does Scott Brick bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Scott brick brings a voice to Pendergast that is believable. I enjoy listening to his melodic performance.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I don't want to spoil it, but there is a moment between d'Gosta and Hayward -- well, listen to it yourself.
