Editorial Reviews

Amazon 5 stars
In this phenomenal hybridization, Dracula makes his 2nd visit to Victorian London (his 1st being the original Stoker novel). Here he becomes embroiled in an unpublished Sherlock Holmes adventure featuring the heretofore unseen "giant rat of Sumatra." Saberhagen stays faithful to the original characterizations of both Doyle and Stoker, and intermixes the two in a fascinating adventure which, after reading the first several chapters, you will not be able to put down. A real page turner.

I’m a sucker for Sherlock Holmes stories and this appealed to me … . An excellent story, well-handled, with a credible presentation of both Holmes and Dracula and a worthy crime and criminal
Amazon 4 stars
An unexpected yet successful association. This sequel to An Old Friend of the Family is even better than the original. It gives interesting informations about how vampires are made and gives a hint to those who always wondered how Holmes manage to be so good at investigating. For those who like detective and vampire novels.
