New York. The Macmillan Company, 1936
Something fearsome stalks the Hammand family, who call in the aid of ‘Supersensitive’ Luna Bartendale, who unravels an ancient ancestral curse with looming lycanthropy, a soupçon of Satanism and a cryptographic conundrum to boot, all set against the backdrop of the Sussex South Downs. Widely regarded as one of the best werewolf novels, brought to the big screen by 20th Century Fox in 1942 (retitled in Britain as The Hammond Mystery).
