Starring: John Moffatt/Timothy West/David March

The Baker Street sleuth takes on the sanguinary Count.

Loren D Estleman's thriller stars John Moffatt and Timothy West.

The world's greatest detective pits his wits against the evil forces of the sanguinary count.

From a posthumously published memoir of Dr John Watson: “I feel it my duty to set the record straight regarding a number of erroneous statements made recently concerning the events I am about to describe. I refer in particular to a spurious monograph by one Bram Stoker, entitled Dracula, which completely ignores the part which Sherlock Holmes played in bringing that affair to its successful conclusion.”
