The Complete Duke De Richleau Series
The Duke de Richleau (1875-1960) was an aristocrat, adventurer and occultist, he is a fictional character created by Dennis Wheatley who appeared in 11 novels. The character first appeared in the novel The Forbidden Territory, along with his friends Simon Aron, Richard Eaton and Rex Van Ryn, whom Wheatley dubbed ‘the modern musketeers’. The friends were reunited in Wheatley’s best-selling novel of the occult The Devil Rides Out. The novels revolving around de Richleau’s exploits ranged from occult stories, such as The Devil Rides Out, Strange Conflict and Gateway to Hell, to more straightforward thrillers based around non-supernatural intrigue.
In the story The Devil Rides Out (1934), the Duke, Rex and Richard rescue Simon Aron who had joined a Satanic cult headed by the sinister Damien Mocata. The Duke returned to Spain in The Golden Spaniard (1938), with Richard Eaton, during Spain’s civil war, to remove a vast bullion cache from seizure by the Republican government. In Codeword – Golden Fleece (1946) the Duke and his friends attempted to cripple the German war effort by business intrigues involving oil barges in neutral states among the Danube. In Strange Conflict (1941), the Duke was instrumental in foiling the activities of a Nazi occultist, based in a location to be discovered, which were threatening the Atlantic convoys. After World War II, the Duke and his friends traveled to South America to foil another satanic cult, this time targeting Rex Van Ryn in the tale Gateway to Hell (1970). In his final years, in Dangerous Inheritance (1965), the Duke left England to live on the island of Corfu, then leaving for a final adventure in Sri Lanka.
