The American vampire called Pearl Jones has seen her human husband nearly slain by a coven of vampires she thought long destroyed. To end their un-American activities for good, she joins forces with her maker, Skinner Sweet, and the bloodsucker-hunting organization The VMS to track them down. But is there a double agent in their midst? And in Europe, a shocking Soviet attack on London has freed the most powerful vampire the world has ever known. Can two of the VMS’s best agents, Hobbes and Book, end the reign of the Lord of Nightmares before he can unite the world’s vampires under his dark banner – or will nothing stop Dracula from rising again?
