The Hell-Fire Clubs scandalised 18th century English society, with rumours of their orgies, recruitment of prostitutes and extreme rituals circulating widely. This sets aside the gossip and brings to light the first accurate portrait of their membership, beliefs, activities and more.


Evelyn Lord has published widely on local history and is the author of The Knights Templar in Britain and The Stuart Secret Army. She lives in Cambridge, UK.


"A fine excursion into one of the more unlikely contributions to culture. . . . Lord runs through the influences, varieties, and members of various Hell-Fire Clubs and their increasingly louche predecessors."-Katherine A. Powers, Boston Sunday Globe -- Katherine A. Powers "Boston Sunday Globe" (01/11/2009)
