THE WHITE OWL

 

 

Edmund Snell

 

"The White Owl," quivers with the literary hocus pocus that affords mental relief in a materialistic age. Two adventurers, searching for an Aztec temple containing a deity, which flourished before the Spanish conquistadores overran Mexico, find it, and on opening the covering of a shaft one of them is carried down into its fathomless depths by a huge white owl. There appears to the survivor a girl? Naia, who tells him that his friend will reappear after twenty moons. The White Owl having been released, the hatred of the Aztecs for their Spanish oppressors is renewed, and a series of murders of Spaniards in various places in Europe follows, the White Owl with hideous green eyes continually appearing when the mysterious influences are at work. The vanished explorer and the girl Naia are always the instruments.   -- The Sydney Morning Herald, 6 June 1930
