Kerr, Peter Bob Burns Investigates:The Mallorca Connection Bob Burns is an old-fashioned kind of Scottish sleuth, more interested in catching villains than brown-nosing to get promotion.

Kostova, Elizabeth The Historian Elizabeth Kostova's The Historian combines a search for the historical Dracula with a profound sense that Stoker got some things right, that the late Mediaeval tyrant kills among us yet, undead and dangerous. From Stoker, she also takes a sense that the supernatural seems more real when embedded in documentary evidence.
