“Often enough my memory has recaptured that moment in Paul Harley's office, when Harley, myself, and the tall Spaniard stood looking down at the bat wing lying upon the blotting pad.”


The life of Colonel Menendez appears to be under threat. Summoned to Menendez's country home, investigator Paul Harley soon finds that the threat to the Colonel's life is tinged with the supernatural.


Harley finds no shortage of suspects in his investigation... but soon he also discovers that the locals are being haunted by aminous signs of the bat... and soon he is aware that the dark arts of voodoo may be involved.


A splendid mystery thriller full of red herrings, twists and turns, written by Sax Rohmer at the top of his game.
