Deeply haunting case.,
This review is from: The Highgate Vampire: The Infernal World of the Undead Unearthed at London's Highgate Cemetery and Environs (Hardcover)
I recommend everyone interested in vampires to read this book. You'll be looking for a crucifix to keep around (maybe even two if you're like me!)and your lamp will probably be staying on all night for a while aswell.
Bishop Sean Manchester has more than the credentials of a true vampirologist and let's face it if the Highgate Vampire is only one case in our history we certainly need his invaluable knowledge and experience to deal with them. There are dark worshippers in our society. Their black magic in & around the cemetery being very significant to the case of the Highgate Vampire.
After reading this you'll have those doubts but there's something about truth being told, no matter how it's spoken or communicated that rings true. It just does'nt let you go.
For further reading I'd recommend Beyond the Highgate Vampire by David Farrant. For an in depth study of vampire lore the books of Montague Summers.
