A thrilling novel in the historical series that offers “an entertaining blend of detective story and the supernatural” (Science Fiction Chronicle).
With the Revolutionary War making itself felt in his Long Island home, Jonathan Barrett and his sister Elizabeth seek refuge on the distant shore of England. However, Jonathan has yet another reason to make the voyage: he is still searching for Nora, his lost love and the woman responsible for his recently discovered taste for blood . . .
That search takes Jonathan back to the home of his mother’s sister, where he discovers a plot against his family that puts him in danger from the most unlikely of suspects. But his new enemies will soon realize that it is very difficult to kill a Barrett—particularly one who is already dead . . .
