DennisWheatley plays to his strengths - excellent at writing good old fashioned psychological thrillers with overtones of supernatural and horror. The book begins slowly but builds up to a true pitch of tension.

The story is written as the diary of Toby Jugg, from the beginnings of his troubles until the very end. The first-person diary narrative allows for the ratcheting up of the psychological tension, while at the same time slowly unravelling the reason for the haunting. The ambiguity remains: , is it really all in Toby’s mind? Is it just an after affect of his war experiences, what might today be called PTSD? Toby questions himself but at the same time knows what he is seeing, which of course frustrates him even more when the over-powering Helmuth (a family friend), Deb (Toby’s nurse), his Uncle Paul and his Aunt Julia (his only family) do not believe him. Toby feels more and more isolated as no one believes what is happening to him. The best part of the diary is the fact you learn about Toby’s background which makes interesting reading.

* ValuesDissonance:- the social attitudes of the 1940's are somewhat different to our own, ie on race and social class.

At times Toby is very funny, but his diaries are somewhat let down by racist comments which do not even seem FairForTheirDay.

''The Haunting of Toby Jugg'’ (1948) tells the story of Toby Jugg, a young RAF pilot who is shot in the back and suffers a spinal injury during a mission, and is now confined to a wheelchair, something which Toby finds frustrating and demeaning. On the advice of his family and doctor he is sent to one of his many family’s homes to recover (did we mention that Toby is heir to a vast fortune from the family industries?) and that is when the haunting of Toby Jugg begins.
