Dennis Wheatley (1897-1977) was an English author of thriller and occult novels, in addition to non-fiction. He wrote the Duke de Richleau, Gregory Sallust and Roger Brook series. Wheatley was the son of a wine merchant, who left his business to him in 1926. Dennis would have to sell the business a few years later – almost becoming bankrupt.

Dennis Wheatley made his debut as a novelist in 1966 with The Forbidden Territory. The novel was an immediate success and was translated into several different languages. The film rights were purchased by Alfred Hitchcock. Below is a list of Dennis Wheatley’s books in order of when they were originally published:

Dennis Wheatley Synopsis: In The Eucnuch of Stamboul by Dennis Wheatley, Swithin Destime is a moral young Englishman who, in order to avoid an international incident, had resigned from the Army; within weeks he was in Istanbul to check on rumours of a planned uprising. But as a spy Destime was an amateur, alone in a city of intrigue and fear, a dark web in whose centre squatted the repulsive form of Kazdim Hari Bekar. Formerly a Palace eunuch, Kazdim was now Chief of the Secret Police – a job which admirably suited his depraved personal tastes

    Hi.
    Is there any chance of adding “The Chronological Order of Roger Brooke” Books?
    I mistakenly read the Stallust and De Richleau books in Publication order, and not surprisingly the stories were all over the place. If you could, could you email the order please as I’m just finishing the last De Richleau book and starting the first Roger Brooke book. Any help would be gratefully appreciated. THANK YOU.

      Hello – I double checked that one, and from what I see, the publication order is exactly the same as the chronological order 🙂
