When several wealthy and powerful men are found dead under bizarre and seemingly unexplainable circumstances, it would appear that the Devil himself is responsible. The smell of brimstone, Satanic images seared on walls and floors, pentagrams and demonic chants are all part of the murder scenes. Enter FBI Special Agent Aloysius Pendergast and NY cop Vincent D'Agosta. Pendergast is brilliant, cultured, and knowledgeable about fine cuisine, music, art and everything in between. D'Agosta is the street smart, tough-as-nails sidekick, with a history of being something of a rule bender. From a posh Long Island estate, the two travel to historic castles, cemeteries and monasteries in Italy, as they face a diabolically clever opponent.
Brick presents Pendergast as a buttery-voiced, soft-spoken Southerner, and shifts easily into dead-on New Yorkese for D'Agosta. Not only does his reading have its usual clarity and strength, but Brick also demonstrates linguistic expertise with his Italian, which he is called to use often. Miles Klein, Frisco, TX
