Summary

The long-anticipated new novel from best-selling author Clive Barker.
The gates to hell are open, and something beckons.... The last of Earth's magicians are living in fear. A Cenobite Hell Priest known as Pinhead is killing them off, gorging on their knowledge to enhance his own magical powers as part of a quest to takeover hell.
Meanwhile Private Investigator Harry D'Amour is fulfilling the final wishes of the dead, who communicate with his business associate, the blind medium Norma Paine. But while investigating one such case, Harry inadvertently opens up a rift between hell and the real world. When nemesis Pinhead emerges through the portal, a vicious battle ensues.
After failing to enlist Harry as one of his Scarlet Gospels, an elite group of indefatigable messengers who will witness his takeover of hell, Pinhead captures Norma, and Harry realizes he must go through hell - literally - to save her.

Great book. Read it and enjoy

It's not often that I spend an entire day plugged into my iPhone listening to a book from start to finish but this is one of those rare occasions where I couldn't help but see the story through to the end stopping only for coffee and snacks or when the cat insisted on attention!

If you're familiar with Clive Barkers early works than The Scarlet Gospels are like slipping on an old comfortable robe or meeting a good friend that you haven't seen for a while. The story itself is brilliant and the plot absorbing. Without spoiling the end, just like the Box, a door is now opened for more of the same from one of my favourite authors.

I look forward to reading of the future of a world in which Hell may come calling when you least expect it.

I hope you enjoy this book as much as I did.

First Barker Novel

This happened to be the first one of his books I'd listened too as a big Stephen King fan. Whilst they're very different writers, I still really enjoyed the themes and characters! Definitely recommend to anyone trying to expand in horror fiction.
