Mr Stoker

by Matthew Gibson | 28 May 2023
PAPERBACK
London, September 1888. Jack the Ripper roams the streets. A scream rings out from beneath the stage of the Lyceum Theatre. A young 'actress' has been attacked, suffering peculiar bite wounds to her neck; an event that announces a series of strange, vampiric happenings, and thrusts an unwitting Bram Stoker - acting manager of the Lyceum and aspiring author - into the limelight, and the action. Increasingly perplexed by the unsettling behaviour of his 'Guv'nor', the brilliant but mercurial actor, Henry Irving, and Irving's acclaimed leading lady, Ellen Terry, Stoker soon starts suspecting the worst. And then, another attack reveals a vicious Prussian baron, returned to London as a vampire seeking revenge. Alive with Gothic intrigue, reversal and surprise, Mr Stoker will keep the reader enthralled and confounded until its final, shocking scene - indeed, until its very last word. 'This is a fully realised Gothic world, a stimulating mix of homely familiarity and lurking menace which will engage readers of all ages.' David Punter, author of The Literature of Terror
