Fiction, Fantasy

Oh, look. MORE vampire fiction. In this case, a mortal man is hired to find out who is killing the vampires of London. Failure is dangerous, as the vampires who hired him know not only where he lives but of his beloved wife. But success might be more dangerous, since he might be too dangerous to let free...

This is not a bad mystery, and the characters are well-drawn within the strictures of Edwardian society. The vampires, in this instance, have the traditional vunerabilities to sunlight and certain woods, but in this case they also are susceptible to silver. Not a bad addition to vampiric folklore.
