(The second book in the Poetic Death series)
A novel by

 
 
As Halloween comes to the English village of Innisdale all manner of trickery leads to intrigue and mortal danger....



American schoolteacher and literary scholar Grace Hollister has extended her stay in the Lake District to do research and act as advisor to a local production of The Vampyre, a play written by Lord Byron's doctor. But when accidents begin befalling the cast -- culminating in the death of a society lady at a masquerade ball, replete with puncture wounds on her neck -- it seems a real vampire may be roaming the village.
If that's not chilling enough, Grace is being stalked and her enigmatic love interest, ex-jewel thief Peter Fox, has been behaving suspiciously after a rash of local thefts. Armed with little more than her passion for poetry and a determined spirit, Grace sets out to solve both mysteries...and to take her own bite out of crime.
