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.

    I regret buying this book. It is amazing what can make it on the best sellers list.

    "Definitely Delivers"

    I am really enjoying these stories of Pendergast. Scott Brick is a fantastic narrator. The story lines are unique and suspenseful. I am looking forward to discovering more.
    I would highly recommend.

    "Excellent!!! Modern Agatha Christie."

    Excellent detective novel. You have to really pay attention to all details, very mind stimulating.
    The first I read from Preston/Child series; will definitely buy more and recommend it to my friends.

    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.

    "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 !
