This review is from: The Devils Own (Paperback)


This one has it all - middle aged spinster with no family, secluded English village with mysterious goings on and eccentric inhabitants, children in peril, devil-worshippers. If you enjoy a well-written suspense/horror heavy on the suspense and implied horror, or are a fan of the old Hammer horror movies of the sixties, this is the book for you. Written by Norah Lofts under her suspense nom-de-plume of Peter Curtis, and also published as The Witches and Little Wax Doll.

This book was actually made into a Hammer horror movie in 1966, starring the fabulous Joan Fontaine as the lady who begins to suspect that something is 'not quite right' in the village where she goes to become a school teacher. Highly recommended.
