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.

    Sassy dialogue, humor, and a great reader are important to me.

    Story
    "Southern Sherlock and N.Y. Watson"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Brimstone to be better than the print version?

    this is my first read of this author. If you like long reads like Nelson DeMille with a Sherlock Holmes type story, then this is as good as they get. This is a series, make no mistake, but if you don't buy #6, you will still enjoy this one very much.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Brimstone?

    when the Brimstone deaths occur, these scenes suck you right into the story and make you want to find out the mystery. Clever!


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

    Mr. Brick is the reason I tried this author. He does his wonderful creation of bringing life to the story. His interpretation of Vinny is great.
    Note use the new 1.25x speed to get the author's intent.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I was on the edge of my seat for first 4 hrs, but as with many long mysteries, I tend to lose the connection with them if they are too long for me.

    "What an ending!!"

    Couldn't put it down. I liked the first four Pendargast novels very, very much, but this one really stands out!! Can't wait to read the rest of them!! Ok - that's was long enough - "Dance Of Death" here we go!!!🎯

    "Great detective duo"

    I really enjoyed the relationship between D'Agosta and Pendergast. They were a real team. The only downside to this book is that it left things hanging. Not fair !

    "Never disappointed!"

    I have so many other books downloaded. But every time I finish a book in this series I want to move on to the next! The characters just keep getting more interesting, and the stories more intense. I'll be disappointed when I get caught up to the latest book!

    "Excellent"

    I found this audiobook very intriguing. Not my usual sort of fare , but I really enjoyed the southern eloquence of the Pendergast and his sort of gothic nobility . Definitely a new fan of the series.

    "Riveting"

    I really enjoyed the setting, outside of New York and the more complex characters.
    My favourite so far, together with Relic.

    "Finally!"
    Where does Brimstone rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    So far, its the best book I have read from the series. I am moving on to the next book!


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

    Yes, but it was a bit up and down.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I am so glad someone finally had some sparks of romance- a much needed tension and factor in the previous books.

    I was an avid reader of books before my work took most of my time so now I listen to Audible books when I'm exercising or walking my dog. I like mystery and thriller novels, particularly good serial killer novels. I'm a writer and a psychotherapist.

    "Terrific Story"

    I was completely engrossed in this story, so much so, I hurriedly went online as soon as it ended and purchased the next in the series, only to discover that I wasn't ever going to find out how Pendergast escaped and I didn't remember who had different colored eyes so there was no help there. I was so disappointed after starting the next book and discovering I was never going to know, I came back online and reduce my rating of the story from five down to one. If Pendergast weren't the mail protagonist maybe it wouldn't matter but in this story it matter. I am very disappointed that the book didn't develop a complete conclusion.
