Synopsis

A former British spy tracks a vampire who is conspiring with the Austrian government in an evil plot
After a career spying for Queen Victoria, James Asher enjoyed a quiet retirement until he met the vampire Don Simon, an immortal Spaniard who taught him about the secret society of bloodsucking undead. Now one of the vampires, the Earl of Ernchester, has turned his back on Britain. When Asher spots him boarding a train for Paris in the company of an Austrian spy, he springs into action. If the immortals can forge an alliance with England’s enemies, then the Empire is doomed. Asher tails the Earl to Paris and across the Continent, plunging into the heart of a terrifying conspiracy of the undead—with the fate of the British Empire at stake. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Barbara Hambly, including rare photos and never-before-seen documents from the author’s personal collection.
