"This book centers around Adam Salton who is contacted by his granduncle in England, for the purpose of establishing a relationship between these last two members of the family. Adam travels to Richard Salton's house in Mercia, and quickly finds himself in the center of some inexplicable occurrences. The new heir to the Caswall estate, Edgar Caswall appears to be making some sort of a mesmeric assault on a local girl. And, a local lady, Arabella March, seems to be running a game of her own, perhaps angling to become Mrs. Caswall. There is something strange about Lady March, something inexplicable and evil."

As it turns out this verson was abridged by the original publisher. The Garden of Evil, the American edition from 1966 and its reprintings, appears to be unabridged, so I might look into acquiring that to see if it fulfills the promising story better. Read full review

This was Stoker's final novel, but it isn't a patch on Dracula. While it does contain a few vivid and quite graphically horrific scenes, much of it is bland and reads woodenly. A disappointment. 3/5 Read full review
