What is the connection between the moon-worshipping cult in London's West End, and he mysterious deaths of moon astronomers in Germany, the USA, Greenwich, and Wales?

How an an astronomer die while observing the moon through a telescope, and be left with an eerily silvered skin?

A brisk novel by British pulp author William J Makin (1893-1944)

No original cover can be found. This edition's cover is concocted by me from a 1920s photograph.

Thank you, Pulpmeister for this rare SF-Work! The source is perhaps the serial in "The Northern Star" ?

Yes indeed Matthias: Northern Star it was. Possibly condensed, as newspaper serials often are; just 52,000 words. Apparently also known as "The Moon Murders".
