Kurzbeschreibung

I am in prison awaiting trial for the murder of my wife’s lover... My version of what occurred is so utterly fantastic that it is certain to be taken as an attempt by me to show that I am mad. But the doctors have already agreed that I am sane; so for myself I see no escape from the gallows. Nevertheless, I swear by Almighty God that all I am about to dictate into a recording machine is the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.

With Sir Gifford Hillary and Wing Commander Johnny Norton involved in plans to counter the might of Soviet Russia, interest soon centres on the evil Lady Ankaret and the tragedy which occurred at Longshot Hall, South Hampshire, on the night of the 9th September. A victim is struck down, and from that moment onwards the events which follow seem, at first, fantastic and unbelievable–but are later realised to be entirely logical. What does happen after death? And why should Sir Gifford find himself in prison, on trial for his life?

Synopsis

At the Government's request, Sir Gifford Hillary throws himself into the secret struggle against the might of Soviet Russia. But danger is closer than he suspects as a tangled web of hatred and betrayal reaches out from Longshot Hall.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Early memories 30. Mai 2005
Von Colin Stewart - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I first read this book as a child and have been a fan ever since, reading it several times. It is a wonderful story set in the class divided society that was pre-war England. Wheatley's imagination is superb and he writes about fears and questions we all have about the after life. The style of writing and characterization is similar to Agatha Christie who writes about a similar period. Old fashioned, but well worth a read.

3.0 von 5 Sternen the living, the dead ... and the in-between 3. Dezember 2001
Von lazza - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
'The Ka of Gifford Hillary' is one of those books which despite being rather absurd is a compulsive read. But this can also be said of Dennis Wheatley's other occult novels. Great entertainment value, but little in the way of believability.
In this book we have a wealthy man, Sir Gifford, who finds that he has an 'out of body' experience in the most literal sense. His spirit, or 'ka', has escaped from his body and wanders around southern England (...don't ask! these things just happen :-)). Actually the circumstances behind this (murders and mayhem) are rather interesting, as is Sir Gifford's efforts to get his ka back into his body. (...remember, I didn't say this book ranked high on the believability index) At any rate, the story does move at a quick pace and does have some entertaining/interesting moments, especially in the end.
Bottom line: certainly an odd fish in the world of literature. But Wheatley was like a Stephen King from our father's (or grandfather's) generation, so his works deserve some respect. This even includes 'The Ka of Gifford Hillary', a quirky fable which is only 'average Wheatley' (best left to Wheatley fans only).

I first read this book in the late fifties! It scared the crap out of me then! As young child I had really scary nighmares which were intensified due to reading this bookI However I am now "a little older" and wiser, however I really enjoyed the book the seconed time around.
