When ordinary measures are no longer enough, criminal mastermind Fu Man Chu makes use of a supernatural henchman to get his way. Soon, Scotland Yard is confronted with a series of unexplainable deaths that unsettle Victorian London, and Inspector Lestrade turns to occult detective Jason Dark and Siu Lin for help.
But as they look into the case, little do the ghost hunters suspect that the evil crime lord has already made them the vampire’s next target!

Publisher: Thunder Peak Publishing (February 16, 2012)
Series: Jason Dark #11
Once again, Guido Henkel has captured my attention with his action-packed tales. The mystery of Fu Man Chu’s Vampire radiates from the pages as it does with all of his stories. Siu Lin is one of my absolute favorite characters. She’s a kick-ass kinda gal that really shines, no matter what situation she is faced with. She almost steals the spotlight, she’s so hardcore. It’s been a while since I thoroughly enjoyed a vampire tale and Guido Henkel reminded me what I’m missing. His vampires don’t sparkle! So if you’re looking for that particular quality, you won’t find it here.
This is a super-fast-paced read that leaves you wanting more even after you turn the final page. If you’re in the market for a great mystery with a vampy quality that’s set in the gaslit streets of London, then Henkel has you covered with Fu Man Chu’s Vampire. I highly recommend Henkel’s Jason Dark series to everyone. The stories don’t have to be read in order and they’re very entertaining! I look forward to reading more of them.
