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.

Posted by demonik on November 26, 2011

Dennis Wheatley:  To The Devil – A Daughter   (Arrow 11th impression, 1977)

Blurb:
Christina seemed no different from any other young girl: polite, attractive and a little shy.

But each evening, as darkness fell, the demonic Power within her betrayed its presence. And a terrible pattern of Evil began to emerge.

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 …

Robert Neill – Witch Bane

Posted by demonik on November 25, 2011

Robert Neill – Witch Bane   (Arrow 1968, 1970: originally Hutchinson, 1967)


Blurb:
Lancashire in the time of Cromwell, a county cursed, like the rest of England, by civil war and beliefs in witchcraft ….

Accused of the murder of her husband by witchcraft, Mary Standen is only saved from hanging by the intervention of a young commander of a Troop of Horse as she lies naked and bound hand and foot. That same night, as an unwilling witness to a graveyard orgy, she sees for herself that there is indeed a witch coven in the village. Refusing to betray the participants, some of whom she knows, she finds suspicion once more pointing at her, and as the scene is set for a double battle – between royalists and parliamentarians and the witches and their persecutors – Mary is forced to flee for safety at the same time as the Scots march into Preston and Cromwell comes through the hills from Skipton.

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. . .
