Night's Black Agents: The Dracula Dossier
The wild beasts of the desert shall also meet with the wild beasts of the island, and the demon shall cry to his fellow; Lilith also shall rest there, and find for herself a place of rest. — Isaiah 34:14, a prophecy concerning Edom.
In 1893, a visionary spymaster in the British Naval Intelligence Department launched a plan to recruit the perfect asset: a vampire.
Operation Edom began promisingly. The NID made contact with Count Dracula, deep in Transylvania. A meet was set and made. A safe house and a headquarters in England were prepared. Then it all went wrong.
Dracula betrayed his minder and double-crossed NID. Outsiders – possibly with their own ties to foreign espionage — became involved. British intelligence ordered a sanction: They barred Dracula from England, and hunted him down on his home earth, where – during the great eruption and earthquake of 31 August 1894 – they terminated him, with extreme prejudice and two knives.
Or so they thought.
