Harry Wood is a man scarred both physically and mentally by his experiences in Mesopotamia in World War I. Now he is back in Iraq as a photographer on an archaeological dig and about to be traumatised again! As with all digs at that time (1929) there is much fear and speculation surrounding it. This one in particular for they believe they have found the temple? grave? prison? of Lilith, Adam’s original lover before Eve. Believed to be salacious and wicked with many daughters in the same mould, the men of the dig start to get lust-filled dreams. Then, seduced, their desiccated bodies turn up one by one! Great stuff. This is very simply told and other than the sex and strong language could easily be a ‘Boys’ Own’ read.

Synopsis

The Devil's Ark by Stephen Bywater

'The greatest trick the devil ever played was convincing the world that he did not exist' Baudelaire Sometimes the past is best left buried Twelve years after fighting in Mesopotamia in the Great War, Harry Ward returns to the land where he lost his faith, his mind and almost his life. Haunted by bloody visions of bayonets, shrapnel and shells, he takes up the offer of a simple job, working as a photographer on an archaeological dig outside of Mosul. As the dig progresses, Ward begins to realise that what they have uncovered is no ordinary temple; it holds a terrible secret. Now flashbacks are the least of his problems ...and he must face a new kind of terror.
