Agent Pendergast returns in another suspense thriller from New York Times bestselling authors Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child. Art critic Jeremy Grove is found dead, his face frozen in a mask of terror. He is discovered in a room barricaded from the inside, his body temperature is grotesquely high, 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, Agent Pendergast is determined to solve a case that appears to defy everything, except supernatural logic. Their investigation takes them from the luxury estates of Long Island to the crumbling, legend-shrouded castles of the Italian countryside, where Pendergast faces the most treacherous and dangerous adversary of his career.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Brimstone is one of those rarest creatures—a scary suspense novel worth buying right now…It’s that much fun. Combining the cliffhanger thrills of the 1940s movie serials, the insider information that made The Da Vinci Code so enjoyable, and a character in Agent Pendergast who gives Sherlock Holmes a run for his money, Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child’s Brimstone is a top-notch, hands-down, no-contest winner.” Dan Simmons, New York Times bestselling author of Drood
“A highly compelling thriller…Preston and Child prove that the devil is indeed in the details.” Entertainment Weekly
“Fans of cerebral action adventure novels know that…no one delivers the goods like the veteran writing team of Preston and Child…The two now deliver their best novel ever, an extravagant tale of international intrigue…A vastly imagined, relentlessly enjoyable thriller.” Publishers Weekly
“Narrator Scott Brick uses his somber baritone with terrifying subtlety. Brick positively shines as an assortment of villainous suspects on both sides of the Atlantic…Scott Brick’s performance infuses Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child’s thriller with chilling believability.” AudioFile
“An outrageously entertaining thriller from these accomplished coauthors…As good as the genre gets. Don’t miss it.” Kirkus Reviews
“Fans will be excited to see old friends, yet the story will still captivate newcomers. The authors have outdone themselves with marvelous set pieces and an intriguing mystery.” Library Journal
“Child and Preston are especially adept at creepy descriptions of eerily spooky castle ruins, crypts, and grave robberies. Readers who like ghost stories, hauntings, and other paranormal activities will find themselves eagerly engaged in this page-turner.” School Library Journal
