Description: DESTINED FOR IMMORTALITY... * In the tradition of THE SECRET HISTORY and THE ALIENIST - a captivating and suspenseful novel that delves into the true history of Vlad the Impaler...
Synopsis: A brilliant and gripping tale set to become an international bestseller. When a young girl discovers an ancient and disturbing book in her father's library, she re-opens a dark chapter in his past. Her father turns out to be an expert on the real Vlad the Impaler. He also happens to believe - perhaps with good reason - that his knowledge has put himself and those he loves in the gravest of danger. His research, and his daughter's curiosity, will lead to terrible loss and murder, and will force them on a quest to find Dracula's resting place, and the true legacy of his violent life. A vivid and sophisticated re-imagining of the Dracula myth, THE HISTORIAN is, quite simply, a gothic masterpiece, and a tremendously satisfying read. This abridged edition is read by a cast of 6 superb actors, including Joanne Whalley and Martin Jarvis.
