Review Text

A dark fancy which manages more than a little haunting horror and which revives the ritual of the black host- and the black mass- in a story of satanism and a scientist's attempt to circumvent his doom. For Joe Loomis, a doctor, cannot save his friend from the illness he cannot diagnose, but through his death is led to Abbie Cowper, beautiful but strange, and her associates, the Dune Dwellers, whose Walpurgisnacht ceremonial he secretly witnesses. With the onset of intense, incessant headaches which destroy his powers to think- and to sleep, Loomis knows that he is the next victim, and while he applies intracaine to deaden the increasing pain, he also attempts to isolate the source of evil until Abble alone is left and substantiates her love for him as she dies to counteract the curse.... A baleful brew and a strong stimulant for the late evening hours. (Kirkus Reviews)show more
