This is a great read for those that love vintage vampire stories. If you loved to shiver under a blanket while watching the Dracula franchise put out by Hammer Films, staring Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing, or if you've been lucky enough to catch them in re-runs you're going to enjoy this book.
Those old movies can still bring the chills even today and so does this book. The book is set in the late 1800's so you'll even learn a little about how things have changed since then, especially as it applies to criminal investigation and law.
You'll get horror, mystery, action, medicine, law and criminal investigation all in this one book. You also get well developed characters and back stories so you can better understand the interaction between each character and their motives and relationships.
My only complaint with this book is that sometimes the descriptions became so lenghty they bogged down the story and made me crave more action.
With that aside, I would highly recommend this book. I've already ordered the 2nd and last books of this series. I was really frustrated that neither of the other books of the series are available on the Nook!
