A journalist, sent to write a series of articles on ancient rural estates, uncovers the existence of a vampire - and a coven of Satanists.
The vampire was the last Lord of Barnstable Manor; the new owner of the manor is the leader of a coven of Satanists preparing for a major occult happening - a ceremony to welcome their Lord and Master back to Earth. The vampire, unable to contain his lust, has a daughter in the village. Unknown to him, the vampire also has another daughter who is a prisoner of the Satanists. Lisa's future is not good. She has been raised by the Satanists with only one target in mind - to be the Virgin Bride, the bait to welcome the Devil back into their midst.
The vampire joins forces with his hunters in a desperate bid to rescue the two young women, even though this places his own survival in jeopardy.
"And the vampire," the vampire asked grimly. "Wasn't that the reason you came to this grave yard?"
"Yes and No. I had my suspicions that all wasn't well at the Manor. Your demise was high on my agenda, but it's now secondary to our plans. We must rescue the young women first, then worry about your future."
"A truce," the vampire murmured.
"A truce, until the women are safe."
Professor Hazzler held out his hand. Andrew Barnstable, the vampire, took it in his in a strange gesture of friendship - hunter and hunted combining in a battle far graver than either had expected.
