Format: Paperback
I had read a couple of Dennis Wheatleys books years ago and remembered them as being quite good. The settings and language have dated considerably, but, as long as you transport yoursef back to the period when this was written then you will find the story telling is still good. I couldn't put the book down and it had me on the edge of my seat a couple of times. Simple, but effective plots make this an enjoyable, easy read.

Format: Paperback
We are all used to films not being "like/as good as" the book. Hammer's To the Devil - A Daughter is no exception. If you've not seen it, don't rush to; if you have, don't let it put you off trying this book. Not for nothing was Wheatley known as the Prince of Thriller Writers, and to those of us in the know he still is. You will hear it said he's dated, or his views are un-PC. Well, quite often those 'views' are those of his characters - you can't say for certain DW was pro this or anti that - and frankly, who cares? Such remarks are more often than not few and far between anyway, and at the end of the day all that matters is the story - and there Wheatley, once tried, will hold you in his vice-like grip. With colourful characters, exotic settings and strange events, he is the very definition of a page-turner. Let's hope Wordsworth, with these new reprints, bring us many more - and not just the occult novels. Either way, at these prices, you can't lose.

Format: Paperback
This is such a great thriller. It makes one turn the pages and start the next chapter to see what is going to happen. It treats its subject matter with due respect and sides with the light not the dark. The characters are believable and although it is very much a book set in the 1950's its a testament to Wheatley's brilliance as a thriller writer. Such a fantastic read.

I first read To the Devil a Daughter when I was a teenager, after having read The Devil rides out, and I became a devout Dennis Wheatley fan. All of his books are well worth reading, because they are imaginitive, interesting and entertaining. Being a published author myself, I appreciate them perhaps in a special way. Dennis Wheatly had a very sound knowledge of the arcane and much of this is to be found in To the Devil a Daughter. Having read it again after so many years I can say I have not lost my admiration for his work...I recommend it without reservation.

Format: Paperback
This is the first book by Dennis Wheatley I've got round to reading, I wish I had discovered his works sooner. From general knowledge I knew what to expect: good battling evil occult forces and perhaps just a bit of political incorrectness. That's true of this book, but it has so much more to offer. Wheatley presents a thrilling race against time taking the reader from the French Riviera to the Essex countryside and back again, all to save a girl from an hideous fate on the eve of her 21st birthday. The occult elements are of course at the centre of the story and are most interesting. The characters don't have the greatest depth but are likeable and keep the story moving, whilst the places described (the pine-scented Mediterranean and the historic buildings in Essex) add much to the story. Its pacing keeps it a real page turner and it holds up well with modern day thrillers, with the added interest of Satan and his servants controlling events. Well worth a read.

Format: Paperback
I read this book about 55yrs ago and seemed to remember enjoying it, rereading it I was amazed at the absurdity of the whole story, to me the classic passage was when Johns Mother realises that Christina is possesed by 'Satanic Forces' and relating this to John; his reply was 'Gosh MUMSY' Altogether a great read, it wont keep you awake fearing The great satan will leap through your bedroom window

Format: Paperback
If you enjoyed The Da Vinci Code then you will love this. Wheatley is a fantastic story teller. This is racy, fast-paced, edge-of-your-seat stuff! The subject of Black Magic isn't one that tends to crops up in mainstream modern literature - it should, it makes great thrillers! Read this and you'll soon be purchasing the others in the series eg (The Satanist, The Devil Rides Out etc). A quick caveat, these books were written in the 30's and it's important to bear this in mind when you encounter the odd bit which seems a little out-dated or non PC. Don't worry, this won't stop you thinking his books are utterly fabulous.

Format: Paperback
Read this in my youth (I'm now 64), loved it then and love it now. It is in the same genre as 'The Devil Rides Out', ie. black magic.
Wheatley was and still IS one of the best novel writers on this subject.
ALL his books are very good but this is one of the best. It keeps you turning the page, which to me means it's a great read.
You read it - I know you';ll love it.
