Publisher's Summary

Why did the solitary girl leave her rented house on the French Riviera only for short walks at night? Why was she so frightened? Why did animals shrink away from her? The girl herself didn't know, and was certainly not aware of the terrible appointment which had been made for her long ago and was now drawing close.
Molly Fountain, the tough-minded Englishwoman living next door, was determined to find the answer. She sent for a wartime secret service colleague to come and help. What they discovered was horrifying beyond anything they could have imagined.
Dennis Wheatley returned in this audiobook to his black magic theme which he had made so much his own with his famous best seller The Devil Rides Out. In the cumulative shock of its revelations, the use of arcane knowledge, the mounting suspense, and acceleration to a fearful climax, he out-does even that earlier achievement. This is, by any standards, a terrific story.

This is a classic english adventure story, think 39 steps but with Devil worshippers instead of fiendish Hun swine. Its a great story and well read. If you know this kind of classic adventure story you can trace the course of the permissiveness in society through it, this is a lot more permissive than 39 steps, while still being very very twee and British.

You really should give it a go, its worth a credit, plus I would love to see more Wheatley on audible.

Good old fasioned British horror/adventure story

I have been looking on Audible for some Dennis Wheatley for a long time and so downloaded this as soon as I saw it and am not disappointed. Yes the the language and characters do seem somewhat dated but if you can get past that you will find an excellent supernatural thriller. I see that The Devil Rides Out is now available and I am downloading it as I type this. I hope we see even more Dennis Wheatley on Audible very soon as I grew up with these stories and it is wonderful to have them read to me while enduring the daily commute to work.
