Description:

In this, his latest “shocker”, Miles Burton makes skilful use of queer superstitions and mysterious rites that still prevail in certain parts of Britain. A paper recently read before the British Association gave some account of survivals of the “black art” in rural Wales. Mr. Burton’s rousing tale tells of sinister doings in East Anglia, where murder and mystery attach to the ceremonies of a ruthless sect which puts into force certain theories of the ancient witch-cult. There is dirty work in a village public house, a curious taciturnity amongst local notabilities who are heavily involved and weird ritual when the moon is full round a woodland altar. The tale is neatly contrived and well written.--Sydney Morning Herald (20th February 1931). [Suggest a different description.]
