Dramatization of the book by BBC Radio. It was a pleasant hear though at some moments the sound was not stable, I know you should be able to distinguish the distance and so on, however there were moments where I had to turn the volume to the top and suddenly drop it to be able to hear everything.

What I liked was great pace and drama in it as well as additional sounds adding to the story.

The title sounds campy but dont let that throw you off. Loren D. Estleman does a wonderful job capturing the feel of a Sherlock Holmes mystery while weaving in Bram Stokers Dracula. It does help to be familiar with Bram Stoker novel (not just the films). Sherlock Holmes vs Dracula fits in as the chapters not seen in Stokers novel. So there is no surprise but its entertaining to read. The only complaint I have, which prevents me from giving it 5 stars, is that this book contradicts the Sir Arthur Conan Doyles @Sussex [email protected] where Waton was a believer of the supernatural and Holmes wasnt - in this book its the reverse. That didnt sit well with me and could have easily presented differently to match what Holmes creator had already established. However, it stayed true to Bram Stokers version of Dracula - especially that Dracula could be out in daylight.
All in all, it was a fun read! I think it could be adapted into an interesting film.
I wont spoil it but there was a wonderful exchange between Watson and Dracula, near the end, that made me smile.
I certainly recommend this book to both Dracula and Holmes fans!

Most Holmes purists would probably not recognize this as a worthwhile pastiche, but I enjoyed the heck out of it! I thought it was pretty clever the way the author wove Watson and Holmes investigating into the off-stage scenes from the Dracula story. Each character played their part the way Arthur Conan Doyle would have written and I found the resolution - and the adventure getting there - most enjoyable.

The atmosphere was positively dripping with that gothicy darkness and the creep factor was still present as it is in the original Dracula story.

Overall I thought the author did a fine job with this tale and I am off to look into the other 2 Holmes/Watson stories he penned. Good stuff!

For some reason, no-one believes this is a real book until I shove it under their nose. The coolest book Ive ever read.

This is the second book about Holmes and Dracula Ive read, and unlike Fred Saberhagens attempt, Estleman does an excellent job of making the two characters and their worlds work together. I think a big part of this is whereas Saberhagen undermined Holmes character by having him already familiar with vampires and the supernatural, Estleman has Holmes encountering the world beyond the rational for the first time. However, Holmes and Watson deal with vampires the same way they deal with everything else - only accepting the idea when all other options have been eliminated and when they see the evidence themselves. I think the combination also works well here because Watson is revealing a previously unknown aspect of the original Dracula and because the sort of horror Dracula represents mixes well with the Holmesian necessity of always getting the bad guy and solving the problem - or at least having a good chance of doing so. Holmes and Watson first become involved in the Demeter mystery, and then are fully drawn into events through vampire Lucys predations. In the end, they dont help deliver the killing blow to the Count directly, but they do contribute a fair bit to keeping him busy in London. Furthermore, Dracula kidnaps Watsons wife, adding a great layer of suspense to what would otherwise be a story with a foregone conclusion. I also appreciate that Estleman does a great job of capturing Arthur Conan Doyles writing style, as well as portraying Holmes and Watson in such a way that it really feels like this could be part of the original canon. Plus, theres some fun playing with the inconsistencies of that canon early on in the novel, with references to Watsons wife and war wound without specifying which wife or whether he was shot in the leg or the shoulder. All in all, this is a much better book than you might expect from the rather goofy title, and is definitely worth reading for fans of either the worlds greatest detective or its greatest vampire.
