Clive Barker is a legendary author, filmmaker, and visual artist once hailed as 'the future of horror' by Stephen King. His Books of Blood series, films, comic books, art and his novella The Hellbound Heart - which first introduced the world to Pinhead and inspired the Hellraiser movies - have all amassed a global cult following and cemented their place in pop culture history. The Scarlet Gospels marks Barker's highly anticipated return to horror fiction.
A Maxim Jakubowski selected title. The first novel in ages from the master of horror and cinematic baroque excess. Cenobite Hell Priest Pinhead is killing off the last of the Magicians and Harry D'Amour, the private investigator and his sidekick blind medium Norma Paine are drawn into one of the killings and inadvertently open a rift between hell and the real world. In the titanic battle between good and ultra evil there is no holding back and Barker is at his best in unimaginable scenes of devastation and Hieronymous Bosch-like madness. Harry literally has to travel through hell and back again when Norma is lured to the depths in a twisted no holds barred parody of Orpheus and Eurydice. Gruesome, madly entertaining, eminently picturesque in all sorts of crazy ways, this is Barker in fifth gear and a set of adventures his fans will relish. ~ Maxim Jakubowski
The Scarlet Gospels takes listeners back many years to the early days of two of Barker's most iconic characters in a battle of good and evil as old as time: The long-beleaguered detective Harry D'Amour, investigator of all supernatural, magical, and malevolent crimes faces off against his formidable, and intensely evil rival, Pinhead, the priest of hell. Barker devotees have been waiting for The Scarlet Gospels with bated breath for years, and it's everything they've begged for and more. Bloody, terrifying, and brilliantly complex, fans and newcomers alike will not be disappointed by the epic, visionary tale that is The Scarlet Gospels. Barker's horror will make your worst nightmares seem like bedtime stories. The Gospels are coming. Are you ready?

Wick's flock continues to grow, but this brings him no pleasure - what he asks of Julian next may bring his closest disciple to the breaking point. Meanwhile, Tristan & Elspeth meet a pastor who knows plenty about both of them...and Julian. Meanwhile, Julian is forced to make a very public display of loyalty to Wick, as their flock meets resistance from an unexpected source, and Wick's jealousy leads to a show of force unlike any of his previous acts...
Everything comes down to this! After living among their people and being set up as their savior, Boone abandons everything for the one he loves most: Lori. Seeing war as an inevitability, Lylesburg must ready the Breed for the end. What becomes of monsters when there is nowhere left to hide?
