"A dazzling reinvention of the Dracula legend." -- Great Novels


The past isn't dead. It isn't even past. -- William Faulkner

Between mourning the recent loss of his wife and trying to raise his young son alone, librarian John Grant is barely surviving. And then he receives an anonymous letter promising a terrible revenge--retribution for a childhood sin John had thought long forgotten. The threat couldn't be more cruel:

I will kill your precious son on his seventh birthday.

Now John's only chance to save his son is to play the "game" his enemy has laid out for him. A game involving clues buried in literary fiction. Impossibly, these clues are planted in novels written centuries before John was even born.

But soon the line between fact and fiction begins to blur, and the trail of clues forces John into a confrontation with an unimaginable evil.

About the Author:

Irving Belateche is an award-winning author, a screenwriter, and a professor at the University of Southern California School of Cinematic Arts. He wrote the Amazon bestsellers "Einstein's Secret" and "The Origin of Dracula," and he's written screenplays for Paramount, Universal, Sony, Lionsgate, and Warner Bros. He lives in Los Angeles with his wife and three cats.

Review:

"An exceptional novel... Belateche weaves a macabre tale that's as riveting as it is enjoyable. He makes a bold move by taking the vampires out of the Dracula legend, but in doing so, creates a more powerful myth... a more frightening myth. I highly recommend this novel." -- For Book Lovers
 
"Great storytelling, great characters... spellbinding... a thinking man or woman's horror story." -- Beth Abato
 
"A dazzling reinvention of the Dracula legend. A tour-de-force of raw emotion, character, and plot. Will [this] become the definitive story of Dracula's origin?" -- Great Novels 
"A must read for lovers of great fiction and sophisticated horror. A classic horror story that echoes back to those great horror stories from years ago, like Rosemary's Baby and The Exorcist... realistic (and) chilling.  -- Julie Sanders
