inging and steering of this car ten miles an hour was the limit for safety. The crest of the climb gave place to descent with such abruptness that Gees feared lest his exhaust pipe should scrape on the summit of the ridge: again he dipped down and down and down, until he saw four cottages of grey stone, two on each side of the way, and beyond them an inn which declared itself as the Royal George, with, almost facing it, a slightly larger cottage with a brightly lighted window in which were displayed bottles of old-fashioned sweets, packages of much-advertised soaps, and cigarette placards, together with a festoon of sausages.
"Odder," said Gees to himself, noting the white-lettered, blue enamel plate which declared this emporium as a post office and gave the name, "but it should be Much Odder".
By this time, he had switched on his headlights, and the village slid into darkness behind him as the car wheels splashed through a tiny rivulet that crossed his way without the formality of a br

Not the best werewolf story I've read but it's entertaining enough. I like the fact that the story delves into the supernatural 'cause I'm a huge fan of that genre. Great read :)

Reading this book after "Gee's First Case" is like watching Tarantino's "From Dusk Till Dawn". But that is ok, because the story is well written anyway. Also this novel reminded me of "Undying Monster" by Jessie Douglas Kerruish. Fun read.
This is a great piece of 1930s British pulp fiction. It is a supernatural detective story featuring the very likable Gregory George Gordon Green — known to his friends as "Gees." I liked the way the author evoked the lonely, rural Cumberland setting. I also liked the way the author worked distinctively British folklore into the story. I found the characters interesting and engaging. However, there is no real mystery here: once the reader is willing to admit the possibility of the supernatural, it becomes quite obvious what is happening and where the whole book is heading. But, the author is a great storyteller, since he manages to keep the whole thing interesting and moving along at a nice pace. This is a fun read.
I read the first Gees book (Gees' First Case) and loved it. I was a little leery of this one when I realized its subject was lycanthropy. It seemed like such a departure from the previous book. Werewolves? Really? But I give E. Charles Vivian kudos for his achievement. It was excellent, and I highly recommend it. I don't want to give away much of the plot, so just read it. Do! It is worth it. I want more Gees please!
