At the turn of the 20th century, a former spy is called into service to hunt down a vampire killer.
Once a spy for Queen Victoria, James Asher has fought for Britain on every continent, using his quick wits to protect the Empire at all costs. After years of grueling service, he marries and retires to a simple academic’s life at Oxford. But his peace is shattered one night with the arrival of a Spanish vampire named Don Simon. Don Simon can disappear into fog, move faster than the eye can see, and immobilize Asher - and his young bride - with a wave of his hand. Asher is at his mercy, and has no choice but to give his help.
Because someone is killing the vampires of London, and James Asher must find out who - before he becomes a victim himself.

Liked the unusual characters
I read the book years ago and was most taken with Don Isidro, the vampire. I'm not a vampire lover in terms of books. However Don Isidro had some of the human characteristics he had in life such as honesty. He was, however a bit of a snob at times, having been born into Spanish aristicracy 300 or so years prior to the events in this book. I also like Professor James Asher even though he seemed to be a bit old for having been a spy. All in all, this was a good book. It kept my attention throughout.
