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 . . .


Revew

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 book 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.

Dennis Wheatley (eng. Dennis Yeats Wheatley ) English writer, Fellow of the Royal Society (in two divisions - literature and art), author of over 60 novels and collections of stories. His books have been published with a total circulation of over 40 million copies and have been translated into more than 30 languages ​​of the world. Born in South London into the family of a wine merchant who supplied wine to the Royal Court. He was the eldest of three children, attended Dulwich College, but was expelled from there. Then the parents, in order to develop discipline and independence, sent their son to the training vessel of Her Majesty of the British Armed Forces. After sailing, D. Wheatley studied in Germany for nine months, and then briefly joined the family business, but World War I broke out and he left to serve as second lieutenant in the Royal Field Artillery. He participated in hostilities in Flanders and France and was demobilized in 1918 just before the end of the war due to chlorine gas poisoning and bronchitis that developed as a result. Young Wheatley`s character was not distinguished by manners, and the resumption of work in the father`s business and his marriage in 1922 and the considerable fortune of his wife did not help Wheatley to settle down. His extravagant lifestyle often led to debts, which his father had to settle. Dennis Wheatley`s parent died in 1927, and he becomes the sole owner of the family business. But the Whitley entrepreneur was lousy, the business was failing, and then there was a divorce in 1931. In general, a year later, D. Wheatley - almost bankrupt - sells the business and devotes himself to literature. And the support of his second wife, Joan Younger, who encouraged her husband`s literary endeavors, gave the young writer confidence. His first novel, Three Inquisitive Men, was accepted by the London publishing house Hutchinson, which later became the sole publisher of Wheatley`s books, but was postponed for a while. The only exceptions are a few books - an order from Riddle Books, which published a documentary book on the wine trade in 1949, and the novel Out of Vice and Chastity (1950), which was recommended by the Foreign Ministry for circulation in the Middle East. The last book, which promoted the evil of communism, was printed only in Arabic and Persian. The very first publication of Dennis Wheatley took place in 1933 with the novel Forbidden Territory, which opened a series of books about the adventures of the Duke de Richelot. His rather original manner - a mixture of mysticism, occultism and adventure - was well received by readers, so that Dennis Wheatley quickly gained success. And his second novel "And the Devil Comes Out" becomes the best not only in the work of the author himself, but also a milestone in the history of the world horror novel. Although, the main destiny of his work is adventure novels, and he has only 11 strictly occult or science fiction books (not counting a few stories): 1935 - And the devil comes out (The Devil Rides Out) - [In Rus. per. "Against Darkness"] 1936 - They Found Atlantis 1939 - Sixty Days to Live 1941 - Strange Conflict 1948 - The Haunting of Toby Jugg 1952 - Star Star of Ill-Omen 1953 - To the Devil a Daughter 1956 - The Ka of Gifford Hillary 1960 - The Satanist 1970 - Gateway to Hell 1973 - The Irish Witch During the Second World War, Wheatley was a military strategist, while remaining a civilian. He sent a huge number of analytical notes with his conclusions about the forthcoming course of the war, some of which in 1941 were published as a separate book, “Total War”. In addition to mysticism, Wheatley also wrote many spy and adventure novels, documentary books on the occult, history, and autobiography. He is the author of the historical work "Red Eagle - History of the Russian Revolution" (1937), in which he spoke in detail about the Great October Revolution, and also outlined the biography of Marshal Kliment Efremovich Voroshilov. Also interesting is the story of his four crime novels: Murder Near Miami (1936), Who Killed Roger Prentice? (1937), The Massacre of Malinsey (1938) and With This Key! (1939). These detective books were released in the 1930s by Hutchinson as a puzzle, a collection of criminal interviews, newspaper clippings, keywords, postal telegrams, and more. And as soon as you think that you have figured out the name of the culprit, you open one of the envelopes pasted into the book. Dennis Wheatley died on November 10, 1977, having seen the first volume of his most extensive autobiography. After the death of the writer, the remaining two volumes were published. And in 1981, all three volumes were published under one cover under the title "His time has come" Vitaly Karatsupa Biography and bibliography on archivsf.narod.ru Wikipedia Site dedicated to the author
