Summary
  • Long-beleaguered supernatural private investigator Harry D'Amour and his entourage of mortal sidekicks are lured to the infernal realm to serve as "witness" to what the demon Pinhead calls "my gospels": a succession of gruesome atrocities
  • The Scarlet Gospels takes readers 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.--amazon.com
Summary
In The Scarlet Gospels, two of author Clive Barker's best known characters square off in a spectacular good-vs-evil battle. Pinhead, the evil priest from Hell, kidnaps supernatural detective Harry D'Amour's blind friend Norma Paine, forcing Harry to confront Pinhead in the Underworld. Readers familiar with Barker's early works will be thrilled, and horror fans new to Barker will find interesting, well drawn characters, a touch of humor, and a vivid, satisfying bloodletting to rival Armageddon itself. -- Description by Katherine Bradley Johnson
