Sherlock Holmes Meets Count Dracula
Lady Emilia Adwater engages the services of Sherlock Holmes to investigate the disappearance of her head butler and other domestic staff in her neighbourhood, down in deepest Suffolk.

Dr. Watson, masquerading as a life insurance rep. is sent to assess the situation, and on his return to Baker Street starts behaving rather strangely.

Can he save the London season from becoming a ravening gorefest? It's a case he can really sink his teeth into! But will the effort of solving it drive him completely bats?
