Book 20 of the Count Saint-Germain series is another extraordinary adventure with the 4,000-year-old vampire. Dark themes of pedophilia and murder run through an expertly plotted, well-researched story with highly motivated, emotional characters. It's a haunting story that will be remembered long after the finale.

It's 1817 and the Count
is living in Switzerland with a young widow. His publishing house has
contracted a book on the properties
of blood, by Wallache Graf von Ravensberg. Ravensberg is anxious
to find a suitable husband for his ward, Hyacinthie, who he molested
as a child. But an evil scheme
may bring disaster. (TOR, Dec., 368
pp., $27.95)
