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.

Another Solid Pendergast Story
I was glad to have D'Agosta back. He is one of my favorite characters outside of Pendergast in this series. He has some smarts, some attitude, and is a loyal friend to Pendergast. For me, it is tough not to like him and root for him.
I have listened to many books narrated by Scott Brick. As usual, he was up to the task and did not take away from the story in any way. The thing I like about Scott Brick is he isn't amazing or ground-breaking: he is consistent and enjoyable to listen to. He doesn't distract from the story with over the top voices but also adds just enough to each character's dialogue to entertain and really bring you into the story.
I did listen to this book in large chunks, usually a couple hours at a time. It was definitely something that I wanted to keep going on with.

Be very aware of Pendergast
I would have to put this book in the top ten of all I have listened to so far.
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.
When Pendergast acted as the decoy so his partner could escape.
