The door was not locked, and opened easily. He switched on the light, and Richard followed him into the room. Nella lay on the bed. She had on the nightdress she had been lent, but the bedclothes had been pulled halfway down. Her head was twisted back grotesquely. Her mouth gaped open and her tongue had been cut out.

The Duke de Richleau and his friends had faced many dangers in Russia, Spain, and Nazi Germany. Now, a new and unexpected menace confronts them: The fourth member of their group, Rex van Ryn, is missing - and he has made off with more than a million dollars from the Buenos Aires branch of his family bank.

I am disabled & 100% blind due to long term illness, Audible Books are a lifeline and stretch my imagination and intellect to another level.
This is among my Favourite stories and Authors.
I love the whole story, the comradeship, the Magic, fighting Evil with Good and my favourite Character the Duc De Richlou
I have listened to nearly all of Nicks performances with Dennis Wheatleys Audiobooks. I really enjoy listening to his narration , he does an excellent job. I only gave a 4 star for performance due to my favourite Narrator of Wheatley Books and other Authors has to be the Late Great Christopher Lee, but nick mercer does an excellent job
This would make a great Movie , it is a shame that Hammer did not do any more Wheatley films.
