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.
