A classic of the horror genre, Dennis Wheatley’s The Devil Rides Out pits the powers of good against the forces of evil as the Duc de Richelieu wrestles for the soul of his friend with the charming but deadly Satanist, Mocata. Mocata has the power to summon the forces of darkness and - as the Duc and his friends will find - is willing to call upon ever-increasing horror until thundering hooves herald the arrival of the Devil Himself. The book was also made into a classic cult horror film in 1968, starring Christopher Lee and Charles Gray.

Gripping, Exciting, Occult
The night time in the library when the evil forces try to take Simon.
Brilliant reader. The characters were clearly defined by his reading and amazingly consistent.
I was fascinated by the period drama aspect of the story, the aspects of occult and the pace and clarity of the writing.
I usually prefer modern crime or Agatha Christie but fancied something a little different. This was superbly written and so well read as to be a tour de force. Some aspects are a little too far fetched but that in part is the joy of the occult.
Superb story from the 1930's
