Werewolves couldn’t be killed. A bullet was no use against them. Only silver. The creature’s weight pinned his arms effectively to his sides. Sharply pointed teeth gleamed above his throat, slavering a thin mist of hate.
Simon Merrivale owns a mysterious mask and headdress, just some items that he picked up in an old London curio shop.
The legend is that whoever comes into contact with them will find their body taken over by a long-dead Shaman at full moon.
One night, Merrivale is dragged from his home, and he and the relics are taken to an isolated mansion.
There, Ernest Caltro and his followers prepare to conduct a Black Mass with Merrivale as its human sacrifice.
And when the full moon has risen and Caltro has undertaken his monstrous transformation, Merrivale’s time will be up.
Can Simon’s friends Richard Blake and Stephen Nayland mount a rescue mission in time?
Praise for John Glasby:
“A thrilling read.” – Robert Foster, acclaimed author of The Lunar Code.
John Glasby was born in 1928, and graduated from University with an honours degree in Chemistry. He started his career as a research chemist for I.C.I, in 1952, and worked for them until his retirement. During the early 1960s, Glasby wrote dozens of paperback westerns, all of which were reprinted in hardcover and paperback four decades later. Following his retirement from I.C.I., Glasby produced a steady stream of new westerns, science fiction and crime novels, right up to his death in 2010. His other works with Venture include Dawn of the Old Ones, The Coming of Cthuga, and Dark Legion.
