Hellraiser fans! Horror author Clive Barker has a huge treat in store for you this May with the release of his new novel, The Scarlet Gospels. Two of Barker’s most popular characters–supernatural detective Harry D’Amour and the Cenobite hell priest Pinhead–come together in an intense and complex tale that will take readers to Hell itself. Harry follows the lead Cenobite to the underworld after Pinhead kidnaps Harry’s dear friend, a blind medium named Norma Paine. Fans can expect to learn much more about Pinhead and his origins, and can also look forward to an ingenious and creative look at the hell where he now resides.
