(From the publisher):
An aura of supernatural evil spread itself like a malevolent shadow over the bleak Oxfordshire countryside. Something
- man, beast, devil or all three - was preying on human victims, leaving diabolical murder in its wake.
The beautiful young film actress Sandra Kennedy went to the tall, menacing tower, used centuries before for hideous, unholy practices - the tower where her sister had met her dreadful fate. And there Sandra came face to face with - what?
Some of the local people were certain that ghosts and demons walked the lonely environs of Aston Deville, and evidence seemed, even to Sexton Blake, to support this. But Blake set out to prove that human - not supernatural - agencies were at work. By the time his case was near completion, he was not so sure.
