Storm Evil

By John Robb

A terrible storm sweeps across a vast desert area of North Africa.

Five legionnaires and a captain on a desert training course are caught in it. They take refuge in the ruined Temple of Sata. Into the temple, too, come four Arabs who are laden with hate for the Legion captain.

Then a beautiful woman aviator arrives-the estranged wife of the captain. And when darkness falls, and there is no light, and the storm rages outside, the Arabs take a slow and terrible vengeance against the captain. Death strikes suddenly, often, and in a grotesque form…

Who will survive the storm?
