"As a master horror writer Barker has illuminated the nightmares that haunt the darker reaches of the psyche and now he returns for the first time in years to that genre with a story that includes two iconic characters from his blackest stories: the detective Harry D'Amour and the demon Pinhead. While no stranger to the world of magic and demons, D'Amour has to confront a power unlike any he has experienced, and when a close friend is taken to Hell, he has no choice but to gather his colleagues, all with their own special skills, and follow the demon trail into the Pit. Pinhead is the epitome of pain - the beautiful suffering that makes him a Priest of Hell; pride and ambition suffuses his being making him a unique creature, one who is ready to bring about a great change, for there is a war brewing in Hell, a conflict thousands of years in the making, that will overthrow everything one knows of the Infernal Regions."

— Raul

Praise For…

“I think Clive Barker is so good that I am literally tongue-tied. He makes the rest of us look like we've been asleep for the past ten years.” —Stephen King

“A powerful and fascinating writer with a brilliant imagination… an outstanding storyteller” —JG Ballard

“To call Clive Barker a 'horror novelist' would be like calling the Beatles a 'garage band'… He is the great imaginer of our time. He knows not only our greatest fears, but also what delights us, what turns us on, and what is truly holy in the world. Haunting, bizarre, beautiful.” —Quentin Tarantino
