London - 1894. A ruthless gang of villainous vampires arrives in London with the diabolical intent of assassinating the celebrated paranormal detective (and champion of good form and decency) Mr Percival Percy; the most feared and implacable enemy of the vile and fiendish forces of the supernatural - known, and in certain quarters feared, as The Hound Who Hunts Nightmares.
Success in their pernicious pursuit will not only rid the repugnant rotters of their deadliest foe but also see their despicable leader crowned as The Undead King Of New York City.
Caractacus Plume is the official biographer of Lyons & Hound Paranormal Investigation Agency (est. 1895). Because of the highly sensitive nature of the Agency's work, some of the names in the upcoming manuscripts have been changed to protect the identities of certain individuals (the author's included).
