Overview

Someone has been mad enough to revive the most horrifying evil of the last 60 years. A neo-Nazi magical sect is intent on bringing back the terror from the darkest days of the 1940s, and only one man—a modern magician trained in the magical arts and exorcism—has the tools needed to stop them. Jack must infiltrate the closed corridors of a big-business conspiracy among some of the most high-powered executives in the country. He eventually finds a cabal of businessmen with occult interests and an insane hunger for the return of an old and dark order. Described as a mix of Dennis Wheatley and Ian Fleming, Devereux lives up to the billing with his new novel.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

Jaunty magician Jack, agent in the U.K.'s occult secret service, goes undercover in the witty sequel to 2008's Hunter's Moon. His goal is to crush the Eagle Society, neo-Nazis intent on busting Hitler out of hell and into a handsome new Aryan body. Jack assumes the role of successful banker John Dennis and grapples with Eagle Society members like "lunatic" Sir James Gold as well as annoying MI5 mole Miss Penny Marsh, herself undercover as cultist Alexandra Gentle. Amiable Jack despises some of the violent chores he must undertake in the fight against the forces of darkness, but he soldiers on bravely. Devereux's quirky blend of horror and deadpan humor bristles with pop culture references, giving Tarantino-style profanity and gore a twist of Robert Rankin tomfoolery and Ian Fleming derring-do. (Sept.)

"This book is tremendous fun."  —Booklist

"While America employs the services of cute blonde teenagers to fight demons; the British way is uglier and more brutal but makes for an absolutely cracking read!"  —SFX
