Thank you, though I'm surprised a bit that his books are not mostly translated into French as he sold books by the million in English-speaking markets at least. It just goes to show how wrong one can be.
Yes, I guess that that is what makes Wheatley rather unique.
Funny I was looking at the back of Wheatley's autobiography Drink and Ink and it said that (on the last printed page) that he was printed in France...how odd.
"hew" or "few" ? Anyway, here's the list of those I know have been translated (mostly because I bought them).
The first three "case files" : "The Murder of Roger Prentice ("L'Affaire Prentice"), "Murder Off Miami" ("Meurtre à Miami)") and "The Malinsay Massacre" ("Le Massacre de Malinsay") (the fourth one was not, to the best of my knowledge, published).
"Forbidden Territory" ("Territoire Interdit")
"The Devil Rides Out" ("Les Vierges de Satan")
"Strange Conflict" ("Étrange Conflit")
"The Found Atlantis" ("La Découverte de l'Atlantide")
"The Haunting of Toby Jugg" ("Toby Jugg le Possédé")
There might have been others, but these are the only ones I know off, and they were all published during the 80s, the "case files" by Ramsay, and the rest by NEO (Nouvelles Éditions Oswald) which did a great job at making people discover the words of so many british and american writers of the "Lovecraft Circle", such as Robert E. Howard.
I've just ordered Dennis Wheatley's Saturdays with Bricks (1961) which I've been trying to track down for a while at a reasonable price. I got it for £23 from AbeBooks.
And here's a YouTube British Pathe short film on Wheatley presumably issued to promote Saturday with Bricks:
