When a man’s beautiful, beloved daughter dies,
A part of his soul dies with her.
When that daughter dies at the hands of a murderer,
That man’s mind is filled with a burning fire for justice, for revenge.
When the local police shrug off the murder as a random robbery gone wrong, when the local populace gossip about the daughter being a victim of an evil vampire, that man turns to Sherlock Holmes.
On a miserable morning in June of 1898, the body of Elizabeth Cleaves-Bedford was discovered in the corner of the family orchard. Her throat had been punctured and her body entirely drained of blood. Sherlock Holmes, the consummate man of science and reason, knows that vampires do not exist. But he also knows that unspeakable evil most certainly does.
Join Holmes and Watson in their quest to uncover the monster behind the crime, who may or may not be a vampire.
This 51st New Sherlock Holmes Mystery is a tribute to The Adventure of the Sussex Vampire.
