This novel begins with Molly Fountain, a writer of mysteries and spy thrillers and believed by some to be the beautiful spy Molly Polloffski, living in the French Rivierra where she encounters the young girl who goes by the name Christina (whose real name is Ellen Beddows). Christina has been sent to live there to hide from some men who want to get her by her father. In addition, Christina exhibits certain strange behaviors in that during the night-time she becomes someone other than herself and animals shy away from her. Molly's son John decides to take Christina out and learns of her strange behaviors while out gambling one night. While there they encounter the Canon Copley-Syle who Christina knew from her home in England. Christina is subsequently kidnapped by the Marquis de Grasse and his son Count Jules, smugglers who seek to send her back to England. Together with Colonel Verney (known as "C.B."), a friend of Molly, John seeks to re-capture Christina. In order to escape the grasp of the Marquis, John must give Christina a ring in order to pretend that they are engaged and in that manner helps prevent the demonic forces from overtaking her. Meanwhile, in England it turns out that Christina's father Mr. Beddows is a very wealthy man who has made a vile pact with the Canon to obtain his riches. C.B. visits the Canon and encounters his diabolical laboratory, featuring the dread humonculous, as it is revealed that Copley-Syle is a practitioner of Satanism. Ultimately it is revealed that he seeks Christina to sacrifice as a virgin on her twenty-first birthday. Together with C.B. and Beddows (who has been a life-long Satanist but recently has a change of heart), John must rescue Christina from a "cave of bats" where she is to be sacrificed by Canon Copley-Syle, the chief Satanist, and his band of Satanists.
This novel is extremely enjoyable for all those who enjoy the novels of Dennis Wheatley. Throughout the novel, Wheatley offers an interplay of the forces of light and darkness played out through action scenes. Wheatley further reveals much occult knowledge in the doings of Copley-Syle. Further, this novel offers a warning to those who would dabble in Satanism against the forces of light.
