Estleman Dead captain drained of blood a series of bizarre nocturnal crimes takes place in London It ca. This Sherlockian pastiche pits the great detective against Count Dracula in a sort of Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead approach that sees Holmes and Watson operating parallel to the plot of the Stoker novel interacting with it only indirectly and infreuently While this prevents the ultimate Victorian buddy cop relationship of Holmes and Van Helsing it does allow this novel to read like a Holmes story and less like a patch job of disparate styles Partly it s due to vintage Holmes was still under copyright when this was written and the estate had to approve his use Partly it s due to skill author Loren Estleman knows what he s doing and recreates Conan Doyle s voice pretty much spot on And partly it s due to the simple power of the idea I found this much satisfying that the sprawling REVENGE OF THE HOUND I read recently because the focus remained tight and the stakes clear Plus as a huge fan of Stoker s novel I was delighted to find that nothing contradicted or negated it All in all you could do much worse and there are plenty of Holmes meets Dracula stories out there to prove it

This is a tremendously fun book to read for those who enjoy the old fashioned Rathbone and Bruce films of the 1940s or those who enjoyed Sherlock Holmes in the days when radio ruled the airwaves Light and fun with plenty of atmosphere Estleman has written a book which has great appeal to the aforementioned group and young adults Dracula fans may also enjoy it Some Conan Doyle fans but by no means all of them might find this sort of crossover story a bit of a stretchHolmes and Watson become involved in the Sanguinary Count s attempt to leave Transylvania and make England his home in this fun adventure This is Doctor Watson s account of Sherlock Holmes s heretofore untold part in the Dracula saga written to rectify this important omission in Stoker s account at the specific reuest of Professor Van Helsing A sense of fun and adventure saturate the pages of Estleman s fun but not to be taken too seriously storyFrom the moment a ship is discovered off the English coast with no crew aboard except a dead captain with unusual puncture marks on his neck and a cargo full of Transylvanian earth Holmes and Watson know this is going to be no ordinary case Reluctant at first to believe in the possibility of vampires Holmes and an even skeptical Watson may finally be forced to accept the existence of the undeadWhen the London duo track down the Bloofer Lady through the strange abduction of children who are later found alive but disoriented from blood loss the lady in uestion turns out to be none other than Lucy Westerna More shocking however is our favorite duo witnessing her impalement by Van Helsing Harker and the gang from Bram Stoker s Dracula Van Helsing is disturbed to discover that the great detective knows much about him and his companions than he initially thought Forced to fill in Holmes on the Dracula legend Van Helsing dismisses his offer of help nonetheless Holmes and Watson then continue their pursuit alone in this marvelously fun account of the chaseMore than one dangerous encounter with the evil Count ensues as they close in and someone Watson loves dearly becomes a pawn in a very deadly game indeed Watson s bravery and the help of the Baker Street Irregulars play no small part in this fast and fun read A boat chase near the conclusion is a particular highlight and offers fun for those who just go with the narrative I would definitely recommend this for young adults and old time radio fans but purists of the original Conan Doyle might not be as enadWhile I normally loathe a continuation of a series character by a writer other than the original especially if it comes too uickly on the heels of their death enough time has passed that this one does not feel like a continuation but rather an affectionate nod to Conan Doyle and his creation That being said the game is afoot and time is of the essence for some afternoon fun with this one
