"Here is an unusual tale. It starts quietly enough in a modern London society background and gradually draws the reader into an atmosphere of suspense and threatened horror. We become acquainted with the strange doings of a secret cult which practices a terrible mediaeval ritual in a lonely chapel by the sea, and breathlessly follow the action up to a startling and unlocked for dénouement." From the front panel.
