A classic Ngaio Marsh mystery thriller combining drugs and sacrifice.
High in the mountains stands the magnificent Saracen fortress, home of the mysterious Mr. Oberon, leader of a coven of witches.
It is not the historic castle, however, that intrigues Roderick Alleyn, on holiday with his family, but the suspicion that a huge drugs ring operates from within its ancient portals. But before the holiday is over, someone else has stumbled upon the secret. And Mr. Oberon decides his strange and terrible rituals require a human sacrifice....

One of the best I have read so far.
One of the very best Naigo Marsh yet. I am reading them in order and this one is exceptional.
A Surfeit of Lampreys, an earlier Inspector Alleyn story.
Solid and engaging, as always.
