Quincey Harker-the son of Jonathan and Mina Harker-leaves law school to pursue a career on stage, only to stumble upon the troubled production of Dracula, directed and produced by Bram Stoker himself. As the play plunges Quincey into the world of his parents' terrible secrets, death begins to stalk the original band of heroes that defeated Dracula a quarter-century ago. Scotland Yard suspects Dr. Van Helsing had a hand in the murders attributed to Jack the Ripper. Elizabeth Bathory, a 16th-century vampire countess, Dracula's former lover, cuts a bloody swath through London seeking the survivors of Dracula's last stand.
