Summary:

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?

    There were good moments in this, but it didn't feel very original. And the blood and guts were just a bit over the top so that by the end I found my self saying "of course it did!" In response to the latest outlandish event. I love John Lee usually, but his voices were barely distinguishable and I couldn't figure out if the characters were Yiddish or just New Yorkers, or occasionally Yiddish-creole hybrids. It was just the wrong voice.

    This review is only for readers of Barker's fiction, sporatic or constant. It left me with a feeling of 'not to be continued'. I had a feeling that Clive is leaving us with a summary of a part of one adventure he started us on. That being said, I will look forward to other final destinations this amazing, mind expanding, desperately sad, truly gifted author has in store for his readers. On narration - Excellent
