Publisher Description

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 take over 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 portal between Hell and Earth.

When Harry's nemesis Pinhead emerges through the portal, a vicious battle ensues. After failing to enlist Harry to pen his Scarlet Gospels - the epistles chronicling the Hell Priest's grand coup - Pinhead instead captures Norma. Harry realizes he must go through Hell - literally - to save her.

The long-anticipated new novel from bestselling author Clive Barker.

Could do better

Not his best work. The clever, lyrical use of language in his earlier works has gone; and the need to shock and disgust has replaced actual horror. I would hate to use the word clichéd, but some of the characters were unconvincing - they seemed to be there solely to move the plot on to the big scenes.
The story is okay, but only okay. You do feel like finding out what happens next and it's interesting to find out what happens to these characters from other books.
