The Satan Sampler

(1979)
A novel by

 
Here is Canning at his superlative best in a tangled, poignant story set against the lovely Herefordshire countryside of the West of England, with a final stunning resolution that leaves the reader limp with shock. On the death of his elder brother, Richard Seyton inherits the Seyton estate, which had been in the family since the fourteenth century. But the great Seyton Hall - showpiece of the estate - has been leased to an international charitable organization, the Felbeck Foundation for the Preservation of the Christian Heritage, which is not all that it seems to be. Determined to find a way to break the lease, Seyton is slowly enmeshed in a dangerous web of intrigue and underground politics, especially when the sinister intelligence organization know as Birdcage intrudes upon his affairs. With it two intense love affairs, one of them almost certainly doomed, The Satan Sampler is a thought provoking story of our times. Its chief concern is human values, and Birdcage, of course, holds such in supreme contempt.
