These were some of the greatest works of his lifetime. By the time of his death on the 10th of November 1977, he had been one of the most prolific authors Britain has ever produced. Dennis was the eldest son to Florence Elizabeth and Albert David and had two siblings. His parents lived in south London where they owned a prestigious wine business making him a privileged middle class child.

Perhaps his most famous book is (here in this collection) The Devil Rides Out (1935). Other titles in this omnibus are: The Haunting of Toby Jugg (1948), Gateway to Hell (1970), and To the Devil - A Daughter (1953). These wild fictional rides include Satanism, Black Masses, Voodoo, Zombies, and much more. Wheatley was a U.K. author and his books these days have largely disappeared from the shelves of bookstores and libraries. Get set for high adventure.

I first read this fine novel 40 years ago and to this very day, I find it to be a true exercise in horror. The characters are well developed, the premise and plot exciting, the content scary, leading to it's logical finale. It along with "Salem's Lot" by Stephen King are in my opinion, the most imaginative and fear provoking ever. If this book is ever made into a movie a second time and although the first movie version with Christopher Lee was great, I hope that the second version is even more faithful to the book.
While I have watched (and, enjoyed) the Hammer movie based on this book, I had only recently had its author come to my attention. I was surprised to find that in the 1930's-50's, Dennis Wheatley was the Stephen King of his day: famous, successful, prolific...and GOOD.

The Devil Rides Out is an adult novel: it touches on themes of lust and eroticism one wouldn't expect from a book of this period, is very mature in its depictions of dealings with the 'dark arts', creates fleshed-out characters of unusual complexity, has ripping good action and surprisingly sophisticated plot twists. The stakes are high, the odds are against the heroes and heroines, the action is global and the enemies are not to be taken lightly.

My sole criticism is the casual racism that was de rigueur for upper-crust Brits of this period. However, it adds verisimilitude to the characters, and is an accurate depiction of the time in which it takes place.

For any fan of adventure, horror and/or period pieces, 'The Devil Rides Out' is a wild ride, indeed!
I highly recommend it.
I bought this collection because I really like the Hammer film "The Devil Rides Out." The novel is much better than the film, and the end of the film makes more sense now. (The end of both is kind of lame, but victory is seldom as interesting as the battle, at least in fiction.)

"To the Devil--a Daughter" was a pleasant surprise, particularly since I'd also seen the awful, awful film. Despite the dated slang and general lack of gore, the novel is suspenseful and the psychology of the characters interesting.

"The Haunting of Toby Jugg" is my favorite of the collection. Wheatley vividly conveys the central character's terror, and suspense builds throughout the novel. Again, the language and ideas often are dated, but that's part of each novel's charm. I look forward to reading some of his historical fiction now as well.
I have read 2 Dennis Wheatley novels and have loved both. I love when you end up reading everything by an author and thirst for more. You will not be disappointed, so well written and suspenseful and his flair for the dark side is so entertaining.Perfect for a night by the fire or just a rainy day.
The Devil Rides Out was originally published in 1934 and falls within the Gothic tradition of Black Magic and Occultism. Today it would fall into the the genres of horror/fantasy with a creaky gothic plot. This isn't to say the story wasn't a good one, however the characters, belief systems, and resolutions are all a bit dated.

The adventure is quite good on many levels but its troubled race relations will be jarring for many readers and so it is important prospective readers need to be made aware of this before diving into the book. Because this book was published over 80 years ago some cultural contextualization will be necessary. Once the reader does this, much of the story and its belief systems become easier to swallow.

That said, the book was okay but not great.

Rating: 3 out of 5 stars.

Recommended for those who like these early horror/fantasy narratives and can read beyond the dated cliches of the period.

Still, not a bad read.
Nick Mercer is great. He adds to what is already a great book. He makes a very entertaining performance.
This is a good book - I would recommend
_The Devil Rides Out_, first published in 1934 and made available here by Wordsworth Editions Tales of Mystery & The Supernatural, is an occult suspense novel by British novelist Dennis Wheatley that features themes of black magic and Satanism. Dennis Wheatley (1897 - 1977) was a British novelist who is perhaps best known for his occult thriller novels. Wheatley was a fierce defender of British royalty, the empire, and the class system and an opponent of Communism, and his novels feature characters who adhere to that particular point of view. This novel features one of Wheatley's central characters the Duke de Richleau, a French royalist living in exile in England, who had previously appeared in _The Forbidden Territory_ (a tale concerning the Soviet Union in which the characters were pursued by the OGPU), including the American Rex Van Ryn, the English Jew Simon Aron, Richard Eaton, and Princess Marie Lou, along with her daughter Fleur. Wheatley's novels feature themes of black magic and Wheatley was to write about this field after encountering such individuals as Aleister Crowley, the Reverend Montague Summers, and Rollo Ahmed. Wheatley was religious and held towards belief in Christianity; although, certain of his beliefs were unorthodox in that he believed in reincarnation (as expressed for example by Joan Grant in her novel _Winged Pharaoh_). When asked about black magic Wheatley would always reply "Don't meddle!", indicating his opinion on the subject and his note at the beginning of this novel notes the dangers of dabbling in the occult.

The novel begins with the Duke de Richleau and Rex Van meeting again and then wondering what has kept their friend Simon from meeting with them. Together they decide to pay a visit to Simon's house, where they find him to have a series of bizarre guests and to have purchased an observatory. Simon's guests include Tanith, a woman whom Rex has seen around the world on numerous occasions, the old crone Madame d'Urfe, and Mocata, the black magician who will play a major part in this novel, along with several other mysterious individuals. At this point, the Duke and Rex conclude that Simon has been dabbling in black magic and decide to rescue him along with Tanith from the evils of the black magic cult they are involved in. In the meantime, the Duke explains the "esoteric doctrine" underlying the world's religious systems to Rex and they encounter a demon in the observatory. The Duke and Rex manage to get Simon out of the house by knocking him out and thus the satanic coven will not have thirteen, the magical number needed to perform the ritual. They realize that in order to stop the satanic cult they will have to rescue Simon and Tanith before the night of Saint Walpurga's Eve. Rex manages to find Tanith after meeting up with Madame d'Urfe and takes her with him to Cardinal's Folly where Richard and Marie Lou reside. However, first he learns that Tanith is doomed to die within the year. In the meantime however, Tanith manages to escape and travels to the Sabbat. Together with the Duke, Rex kidnaps Simon and Tanith and take them back to Cardinal's Folly. There they must fight off Mocata, who proves to be a skilled hypnotist and uses his powers against Marie Lou. Eventually they must create a magic circle where they can fend off the forces of darkness and prevent Mocata and his minions from retrieving the Talisman of Set and unleashing a terror upon the world worse than the First World War. The angel of death appears and must carry off one of them, and initially it appears that Tanith will be that person as she is found dead. However, things are not as they seem and the group must travel to Paris and Greece to fight Mocata and his evils there, after learning from Tanith's spirit that Mocata has kidnapped Fleur and intends to use her in his diabolical ceremonies. There is also an appearance made by the dread Goat of Mendes, who appears after Mocata's satanic rites have summoned him.

This novel is a highly enjoyable read and is recommended to all those who would take an interest in the novels of Dennis Wheatley. The atmosphere is extremely mysterious and the interplay of black and white magic is found throughout. The novel offers an important warning to those who would dabble in the occult and black magic which nevertheless remains a fascinating and enjoyable book to read.
