Johnny Southerland has vanished, a severed bloody finger the only clue. The Southerlands are trapped in a blood-feud older than history. Their enemy is not mortal madman but the undying mistress of evil enchantment, Morgan Le Fay. But the Southerlands are not Morgan's true target. She seeks to do battle with their protector, their defender, the only being who can save these mortals." 4. Thorn - 299 pp, 1990 2nd printing, ISBN 0812503163 - "Europe, 500 years ago.

The United States, today. Undead, Vlad Tepes hunts the murderous art thieves who have stolen the portrait of his lost love. But the thieves are after more than art - from the Master Vampire they would steal the very secrets of life - and death!" 5. Dominion - 320 pp, 1982 2nd printing, ISBN 0812508556 - Vlad Tepes has roamed modern America without fear - until now. He is no longer the only immortal in Chicago.

But with Matthew rendered comatose by a fiendish plot from beyond time, the Southerlands must rise to his defense - and battle five hundred years worth of Dracula's enemies!". 7.

Almost 60 years later private detective Joe Keogh has been hired to locate a missing girl - the great niece of Edgar Tyrell. But Tyrell is nosferatu, and he would sculpt in the sands of reality itself. So Keogh must call on Mr. Strangeways, An Old Friend of the Family and Lord of the Vampires, to battle an undead menace from beyond time!" 8.

702 pp, 9 1/2" H. "(T)ells the story of human violence from Peking Man to the Mafia, taking into account the calculated sadism of the Assyrians, the opportunism of the Greek pirates, the brutality that made Rome the 'razor king of the Mediterranean', the mindless destruction of the Vandals, the mass slaughter of Genghis Khan, Tamurlane, Ivan the Terrible, Vlad the Impaler - - . Each age has its own characteristic pattern of crime. In the past three centuries crime has changed and evolved until the sex killer and the mass murderer have become symbols of all that is worst about our civilization. But this is not just a study of human depravity: it is an attempt to place crime in perspective against human discovery, exploration and invention. The result is a completely new approach to the history and psychology of human violence." Light toning to top edge and fore-edge of text block, book is slightly cocked, light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine, minor edge rubbing. Dust jacket minor edge wear, very light edge wrinkling, light browning at top edge of flaps and top inside edge of jacket, light rubbing.
