Dennis Wheatley – The Haunting of Toby Jugg (Sept. 1970)

Dennis Wheatley – The Haunting of Toby Jugg (Arrow, Sept. 1970)

Blurb:
Throughout the Middle Ages, and indeed, up until the end of the eighteenth century, the burning of witches and the fear of witchcraft was an ever-present part of life, but how is it that during the past hundred years so little interest has been taken in the Devil’s activities The Haunting of Toby Jugg suggests an answer. Woven into a tale of modern love and courage, of intrigue, hypnotism and Satan-worship, it propounds a theory that under a new disguise the Devil is still intensely active – that through his chosen emissaries he is nearer than ever before to achieving victory in his age-old struggle to become, in fact as well as in name, the Prince of this World …

Guy N . Smith – Alligators

Guy N . Smith – Alligators (Arrow, 1987)

Blurb:

Freeing the alligators from the reptile zoo is the very last gesture of defiance by two Animal Rights activists. For, horrifying, the primeval monsters turn on their liberators with savage fury.

Now they have tasted human flesh – they want more. Hiding in the river, they mutilate and devour their unwary victims. Poachers, campers, illicit lovers, straying children … the appalling daily toll of victims increases.

Now men and reptiles must match their strength and cunning in a bloody battle for survival – or death.

Sheldon

Blurb:

ROGER BROOK on a secret mission to Catherine the Great’s Russia.

In 1788 Roger travelled to the Russia of that bold, beautiful, cultured, licentious woman, Catherine II – justly surnamed ‘the Great’ – for Britain’s youngest Prime Minister, Billy Pitt. How he buried the Sword of Sweden in the dark straw of a dungeon and, overnight, became a Chevalier of the order of Vladimir, makes superbly enthralling reading.

Robert Neill – The Devil’s Door

Posted by demonik on November 4, 2018

Robert Neill – The Devil’s Door (Arrow, 1981: originally Hamilton, 1979)

Blurb:
In those days, during the wars, there was much that many would like to forget.The cry of‘Witch!‘ was everywhere. There was one they thought was a witch: they pulled the clothes off her, and held her down while pins were stuck into her flesh. That was how it was then. . .
But now it is 1662, and King and Church are back in their own. All should be well in the land.
But when the butter won’t churn as Sir Laurence Linley and his household prepare for a wedding, the superstitious begin to talk of witches. With every day that passes, every new illness and every new occurrence, the fear and hysteria build — until the cry of ‘Witch!’ is loud enough to torment the innocent, and drive an entire village to the brink of destruction

Demons, witches, crooks, spies and kings …. Dennis Wheatley has long been regarded as one of the most compelling authors of modern times – a reputation he owes as much to his passion for accurate detail as to his unerring instinct for plot and character.
This collection is a treasury of Wheatley’s genius: scholarship that rivals imagination, fiction challenged by even stranger fact.
