A body is found in the attic of a fabulous Long Island estate.
There is a claw print scorched into the wall, and the stench of sulfur chokes the air.
When FBI Special Agent Pendergast investigates the gruesome crime, he discovers that thirty years ago four men conjured something unspeakable.
Has the devil come to claim his due?
Some things can't be undone.

The thrillers of Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child "stand head and shoulders above their rivals" (Publishers Weekly). Preston and Child's Relic and The Cabinet of Curiosities were chosen by readers in a National Public Radio poll as being among the one hundred greatest thrillers ever written, and Relic was made into a number-one box office hit movie. They are coauthors of the famed Pendergast series and their recent novels include Fever Dream, Cold Vengeance, Two Graves, and Gideon's Corpse. In addition to his novels, Preston writes about archaeology for the New Yorker and Smithsonian magazines. Lincoln Child is a former book editor who has published five novels of his own, including the huge bestseller Deep Storm.
Readers can sign up for The Pendergast File, a monthly "strangely entertaining note" from the authors, at their website, www.PrestonChild.com. The authors welcome visitors to their alarmingly active Facebook page, where they post regularly.
Ever since RELIC, the team of Preston and Child has created some of the best horror fiction of the genre, and BRIMSTONE continues their string of successes. Their main character, the mysterious FBI Agent Pendergast, is fascinating in his development. Although reader René Auberjonois is masterful at bringing a number of characters to life with his voice, he is especially adept when speaking in Pendergast's honeyed Southern accent. The story deals with the horrible deaths of three men, deaths that seem to have been caused by spontaneous combustion. Together with Detective Vincent d'Agosta, Pendergast follows a trail of deceptive clues that lead them to the conclusion that Satan is responsible for the murders. Only the skills of Preston and Child could tie together a Stradivarius violin, a Chinese ballistic missile, and a remote Italian villa to create a chilling, suspenseful thriller.
