Top Customer Reviews
This said, Storey's narrative history has drive and is full of detail : a reader unfamiliar with either Stoker or Tumblety coming across them here for the first time might well enjoy this more than I did. There are no Dracula Secrets, and any reader hoping that Bram Stoker hid the key to identifying Tumblety as the Ripper within the text of Dracula will be very disappointed.
