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.

Be very aware of Pendergast

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

I would have to put this book in the top ten of all I have listened to so far.


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

The plot kept me intrigued from the very start when Pendergast was introduced in tennis shorts to when he found Vincent and started to depend on him. This plot is unlike any I've listened to before in the way it runs two senerios at the same time.

It was a mess about to become a F## mess.

YOU GOT QUITE A SENSE OF THEATRE
This is the fifth book in the series, but it is okay to start here. They bring back some characters from previous books, but it is not like they do much character development. Most of the people in the book are there to be straight guys to Pendergast.

Even if you don't like the story there are some interesting facts about Alfred Noble, Italy and spontaneous human combustion. The Noble story was especially good. I liked this book better then the previous two. Relic is still the best of the group.

A statement was made by a character that he does not read books written today because of the sex and violence, he would just read his bible. I have heard this before. The old testament is full of sex and violence.

VEGAS AND L.A. WERE MERELY A SIDE SHOW TO NEW YORK.
Another small town and small town people take a hit in this book. At least the whole book was not a put down and they kind of apologized for saying it, but still said it.

This book had a real made for TV movie feel to it.

I am not a fan of Brick, but he does a fine job in this one. Matter of fact he is perfect for the writing style of these two guys.
