Dennis Wheatley – Star Of Ill-Omen

Dennis Wheatley – Star Of Ill-Omen (Arrow, 1965: originally Hutchinson, 1955)

“SCIENCE FICTION BY DENNIS WHEATLEY MEANS SCIENCE FICTION AT ITS BEST. MORE THAN THAT- IT MEANS A THRILLING HUMAN STORY”
Lincoln, ex-Commando and British secret agent, realised that his new assignment was a mission fraught with danger. But he had no idea that he’d be involved with mysterious space ships—or with the beautiful Carmen Escobar, a saint in sinner’s clothing. And there was Anna. Russian —and as svelte as she was deadly.

Dennis Wheatley – The Scarlet Imposter

Dennis Wheatley – The Scarlet Imposter (Arrow, 1960: originally Hutchinson, 1940)

Blurb:
When Gregory Sallust landed in wartime Germany he had as much chance of coming out alive as a mouse in a cage of cats. His job was to contact an anti-Nazi organization ready to overthrow Hitler and sue for peace.

Masquerading first as a German General, then as an S.S. Gruppenfuhrer, he stayed the course to the very end. A hundred times he risked death and the vilest tortures.

Each minute he pushed forward with incredible daring, and fought desperately to elude the enemy closing round him.
Typical Wheatley, a thriller of tremendous power supercharged with violent action and terrific suspense.

Sheldon

 

Blurb:
Duke de Richleau conspires to put a King on the Throne.
This is the story of the youth of Dennis Wheatley’s famous character, Duke de Richleau. He then bore his father’s second title, Count de Quesnoy. The story is set against the glamorous background of Paris in the nineties, when the ladies of the great world had little to think about except their love affairs — and the Count was no mean gallant. The betrayal of the conspiracy brought death to some and left the Count in desperate straits. But instead of des­pairing he declared a vendetta against the Republican Government. How he fought it while being hunted on a charge of murder makes most exciting reading.

Dennis Wheatley – The Ka Of Gifford Hillary (1968)

Dennis Wheatley – The Ka Of Gifford Hillary  (Arrow, 1968)

Blurb:
Sir Gifford Hillary returns from the grave – now accused of murder.

‘Killed’ by one of his wife’s lovers, he became a Ka unseen but seeing all.

Plot and counterplot, ruse and subterfuge, lead through a story of extraordinary fascination and excitement: a story which seems at first fantastic but is later seen to be entirely logical.

Miles away, in the mist and rain of the Essex marshes, a satanic priest has created a hideous creature. Now it was waiting beneath the ancient stones of Bentford Priory for the virgin sacrifice that would give it life …

Dennis Wheatley – They Used Dark Forces

Dennis Wheatley – They Used Dark Forces   (Arrow, 1966: originally Hutchinson, 1964)


Blurb:
He makes the most, incredible seem absolutely real….SUNDAY TIMES

THEY USED DARK FORCES tells how Gregory Sallust allies himself with Satanic powers in an attempt to destroy Hitler. The beautiful (but by now promiscuous) Sabine, and Sallust’s great love, Erika von Epp, play their parts in a stupendous drama which ends with the Russians fighting their way into the flames of Berlin while Sallust comes face to face with his most implacable enemy, the sadistic SS Gruppenfuhrer Grauber. . .
