Combining historical research and dramatic reconstruction, this book not only brings to life one of history's most compelling and brutal characters, but traces his bizarre afterlife. A hero to his countrymen, Vlad Dracula became a byword for dread - not just for generations of fans of Gothic fiction and film, but also for his 15th century contemporaries, whose appalled fascination made accounts of Dracula's atrocities into the world's first horror bestsellers.
