Book Description

When the bombs fall on London, the elderly Duke de Richleau is forced to consider a problem of the utmost urgency. What methods are the Germans using to discover – with sinister effect – the secret routes of the Atlantic convoys? His answer is bizarre and fantastic. Could it really be that the enemy are in touch with supernatural powers? Can these powers only be overcome by those who have the knowledge and courage to join battle with them on the Astral Plane? The Duke and his supporters face the terrifying challenge from the Powers of Darkness.

5.0 out of 5 stars A brilliant yarn from the master of Occult fiction. 23 April 2002
By A Customer
When an old friend asks the Duc de Richleau to look into how Nazi U Boats seem to know exactly where and when supply convoys in the Atlantic will be he discovers that evil occult forces are at work. The Duc and his companions discover that a Voodoo adept from Haiti is travelling on the Astral Plane to gain information regarding the convoys. Now the Duc and his friends must confront their powerful foe not only on the Physical Plane but on the Astral as well. The Duc must also pit his wits against the "Great God Pan" after he is summoned by voodoo ritual. Brilliant !

5.0 out of 5 stars Strange Conflict 18 Dec. 2003
I first read the haunting of Toby Jugg and felt I it was sensational.
Theh I read strange conflict and I think it is wonderful
I've not read any other of Dennis Wheatley's books but I believe it'll be almost perfect.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mesmeric 23 Jun. 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio Cassette
Hear the master's mesmeric tones as he melodiously recites. Fantastic detail into how to put yourself on the Astral plane, and how Hitler really thought. You'll never look a zombie in the face again. Top stuff. You can't beat D.W..

5.0 out of 5 stars Great story with fascinating detail. 21 Dec. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
My parents were both Dennis Wheatley fans so I was brought up surrounded by his books. I found the "Black Magic" ones particularly fascinating and think this one s second only to "The Devil Rides Out" in my opinion his best.

This book is full of fascinating detail about Haitian voodoo practices and the submarine war in the Atlantic during WW2. Wheatley has a good knowledge of both - his service in British intelligence during WW2 clearly helps - and his style is precise and detailed. It might be considered a bit old fashioned today but he can spin a ripping yarn! Naturally, good triumphs over evil, but there's plenty of supernatural shenanigans before that happens!

A good read!

5.0 out of 5 stars The famous five are back again......... 30 Nov. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
in this brilliant story of espionage and Voodoo set during the Second World War.

The Admiralty are completely is that secret information sent to the Atlantic convoys, is being sent to the Nazis? Over a Dinner with Sir Pellinore, de Richleau tries to explain that the spy maybe someone on the Astral Plane. Sir Pellinore laughs it off until de Richleau shows him a feat of White Magic. Sir Pellinore is a touch more ready to believe the Duke now.

So it is up to the Duke to go onto the Astral Plane and watch over the 'bags' of information that are sent to the Convoys. He eventually strikes lucky and comes across a rather nasty entity on the Astral Plane. This information is relayed to Sir Pellinore and of course to Richard, MarieLou, Simon and Rex. Before England for Haiti they are asked to take a young mute girl with them called Phillipa. She is to be dropped off supposedly in her home country of Jamaica.

The next step is to fly to Haiti where de Richleau has traced the entity to. They charter a plane but just as they are approaching Haiti, an unnatural storm starts up and Rex has to ditch the plane into the sea. There they remain marooned to broil in the blazing sun. Eventually they are rescued by a man called Dr. Saturday and taken to his house to recover from their ordeal. Rex, Simon and Richard are not with them.

Once there, de Richleau and Marie Lou immediately clear one of their bedrooms to make a pentacle. They dare not sleep because they could be attacked on the Astral Plane.

From here the story gets rather gruesome and all five of them are lucky to get away with their lives let alone their souls intact.

This was a new book to me as I had only ever read the more well known ones like The Satanist, To the Devil a Daughter and The Devil rides Out.

Wheatley has one thing wrong though.........the God Pan is not evil. He is a nature Deity and only does good.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not his best 13 Oct. 2014
By Gwydion
Format:Kindle Edition
I first read this in my teens, many years ago and remember it as an exciting read. I was disappointed on reading again though. I had just read The devil rides out (for the first time) and thought this was a well put together 'occult' thriller, which keeps you turning the pages. Strange conflict however is slow in comparison and the psychic conflict sections are very much overdrawn. At least two of the early sections setting out de Richleau's beliefs and then the construction of the magic circle/pentacle are taken verbatim from the earlier book - a bit cheap!
