Summary

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. It had been carefully placed in the valley between her naked breasts.

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. Behind the conventional courtesy of Argentinian society lies a conspiracy of terror and silence - and a trail that leads straight to the Devil himself....

Brilliant Wheatley Story.

Where does Gateway to Hell rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This is among my Favourite stories and Authors.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Gateway to Hell?

I love the whole story, the comradeship, the Magic, fighting Evil with Good and my favourite Character the Duc De Richlou

Have you listened to any of Nick Mercer’s other performances? How does this one compare?

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

Any additional comments?

This would make a great Movie , it is a shame that Hammer did not do any more Wheatley films.

Not a patch on The Devil Rides Out

The slow pace, outdated institutional racism and boring first two thirds were very disappointing. 50% of the story sounds like a dull travelog through South America. the final third is a little better and helps the story to two stars. i may be being unfair to the narrator, given the content he is wrestling with but he sounds bored to death describing one South American town after another. So was I.
