Comments Gateway to Hell (Duke de Richleau, #10)

  • Seth Skorkowsky

    I really wanted to like this book more than I did. After enjoying The Devil Rides Out, I was excited to “read” (I listened to the Audible Audio Edition) this sequel.Set in the late 1950’s out heroes from 1934’s Devil Rides Out have again found themselves tangled with a cult of Satanists. However, unlike the first book, that spends the first half primarily following the Duke and Rex racing across England, Gateway to Hell spends the first half following Simon and Richard, who are by far th [...]

    I'd forgotten how odd Dennis Wheatley's books are. You go in expecting horror but instead find yourself in a rip-roaring Boy's Own-type adventure with the Devil leering in the background and our decidely un-PC heroes dashing around the world as they get seek to foil the dastardly forces of evil. It's like reading Ian Fleming with the part of James Bond played by Doctor Strange. Dated but fun!

    Many years ago, I was an avid fan of the DR. STRANGE comic book series, and the interest in occult stories has never gone completely away. Because of this, folks often recommended the Black Magic and Occult books of Dennis Wheatley to my attention. Although I have seen the Hammer movie versions of two of them, this is the first one I've read.The writer's style ist to put too small a point on itrplexing. It opens as an intriguing mystery thriller. Then, it has the feel of an Ian Fleming James Bon [...]

    Wonderfully opinionated and politically incorrect, as always with Wheatley. This time he has an axe to grind about the Perons (the beginning takes place in Argentina), the civil rights movement, and the godless design of the new Coventry Cathedral! The storytelling is wooden at best and I think might be worse than the other Satanist books. Good for aspiring writers as an example of what _not_ to do. But, entertaining still, in it's own way.


  • Peter Jochinger

    Book 10 in the series.Probably the least entertaining of the set.How our heroes defeated these villians and survived is stretching beyond the scope of miracles.


  • Charles J Kilker

    Gateway to HellGood flow and plot not allowed to drag. Good descriptions of Satanic material. An interesting book I would recommend to read.
