Deadspeak - Necroscope 4 (Paperback)Brian Lumley (author)
- We can order this
Harry Keogh is back from the sheer hell of Starside, the vampire sourceworld, but he has been robbed of his supernatural powers. Stalked by vampires, he is in danger of becoming one himself, undead for ever ...
A multinational team of vampire hunters, who rely on the latest technology, scour Europe in the hope they can foil a master vampire's plans to move his nest and expand his troop of thralls.
The hunt takes Harry Keogh, formerly a necroscope, into misty Transylvania, where he fights the resurrected Janos Ferenczy in his ruined castle for possession of his lady love, Sandra.
But Harry is a mere man again, denied access to the metaphysical Mobius Continuum and no longer able to communicate with the dead. Crumbling in their graves, the teeming dead (the Great Majority) fear for Harry. If the ex-necroscope can't destroy the last of the Ferenczys, that nightmare vampire dynasty, the old threat will rise all over again.
E-Branch, Britains paranormal spy organization, and Harry's countless dead friends across the world need Harry to recapture his powers - and so does Sandra, who is in Ferenczy's power.

`Since reading Lumley's Necroscope series, I know that vampires really do exist.' H.R. Giger
`Like the vampires it so full-bloodedly portrays, Brian Lumley's Necroscope series just gets stronger. His lively mix of action and monstrosity transmutes the base cliche of the vampire and turns it into a wonderfully contemporary bane.' Fear Magazine
`This fourth volume in the popular series pays particular homage to Bram Stoker's Dracula ... Lumley retains much of the florid melodrama that Stoker reveled in, with an increased explicitness suited to the present day. Still, the traditions are there: vampires can change form, are vulnerable to silver and garlic and must receive permission before entering either a dwelling or a mind. Lumley provides more rationale than Stoker [to] give the novel an Ian Fleming/Stephen King crossover feel ... a fast-moving tale of the primal horror of an undead parasite worthy of Stoker's original.' Publishers Weekly
