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 DAgosta (The Relic), Agent
Pendergast is determined to solve this case that appears to
defy everything except supernatural logic. Their
investigation takes them from the luxury estates of Long
Island to the crumbling, legend-shrouded castles of the
Italian countryside, where Pendergast faces the most
treacherous and dangerous adversary of his career.
Preston and Childs most recent hardcover, Still Life with
Crows (Warner, 7/03), has close to 80,000 copies
