Review

"Recently Hammer have been reinventing themselves as a publisher of original fiction and novels inspired by their back catalogue of movie classics. This time it's the turn of Countess Dracula ... and they've found just the man for the job in Guy Adams." (Starburst Magazine)

"Guy Adams clearly knows his Hammer... a great read... If Hammer can keep up this standard we should have a lot to look forward to from future releases." (Geek Planet Online)

Book Description

How far would you go to stay young and beautiful? A new novelisation of the classic Hammer film, Countess Dracula.

Product Description

You can do anything in Hollywood and be forgiven, anything except grow old...



It's the 1930s and cinema stands at the dawn of a new age, the silent era is all but dead, talkies are here and Technicolor is on its way.



The whole world loves movie icons Frank Nayland and Elizabeth Sasdy, lapping up each new picture and following their romantic life story both on and off the screen. But all is not as perfect as it appears.



Not only has the advent of talkies meant torturous sessions with a vocal coach to try and remove Sasdy's Hungarian accent but she's starting to spot the first few grey hairs, and the lines on her face get deeper every day. If she loses her looks she'll lose everything, but even a woman as powerful as Elizabeth Sasdy can't fight nature. Can she?



A chance accident reveals the solution. But just how far is the Queen of Hollywood prepared to go to stay beautiful forever?

About the Author

The author of the novels The World House and its sequel Restoration, Guy Adams gave up acting five years ago to become a full-time writer. This was silly, but thankfully he's kept busy, writing bestselling humour titles based on TV show Life on Mars or Torchwood novels The House That Jack Built and The Men Who Sold The World. He has also written a pair of original Sherlock Holmes novels, The Breath of God and The Army of Doctor Moreau as well as a biography of actor Leonard Rossiter and an updated version of Neil Gaiman's Don't Panic: Douglas Adams & The Hitch-Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy. He is also the author of Kronos, a novelisation of the classic Hammer film, Captain Kronos Vampire Hunter and Hands of the Ripper, a new novelisation of the classic Hammer film of the same name.
