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.

    Avid audiobook listener. If it's not on audio, I probably haven't read it!

    "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.

    "Scott Brick is A. Pendergast!"

    I just completed reading/listening to Brimstone for the second time. I love Scott Brick as Pendergast and wish he did them all ~ R. Auberjonois is ok but his narration is so bland. The story is in true Pendergast tradition ~

    "its like they are real people."
    What about Scott Brick’s performance did you like?

    I expect his voice with each book.. I can almost see Pendergast..


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

    it was difficult at times to turn it off and save for later
