Soon after triumphing over Count Dracula, Dr. Van Helsing chances upon the notes left behind by Dr. Henry Jekyll and proceeds, with the utmost care, to correct the errors which plagued that ill-fated man's experiments. The reformulated potion indeed begins to bring out the angelic and suppress the demonic in whoever drinks it.

As the fates would have it - not to mention the storyteller's desire for convenient coincidence - the First International Peace Conference will, in a few months, convene in The Hague.

As the attendee list is heavily weighted with politicians and military men, the gathering is regarded with understandable cynicism as to its reaching any meaningful outcome beyond the primping, preening, and posturing of the sociopathic blowhards so frequently drawn to high positions of power.

But Van Helsing resolves to supply, suitably adulterated, the tea being served at social gatherings and pairs up with renowned peace activist, the Baroness Bertha Von Suttner, to make that happen.

What will be the outcome of the good doctor's efforts? Only time - and the reader's spellbound attention to the narrative - will tell!
