Bram Stoker is well-known today, but during his lifetime he was a struggling author working as the manager of the famous Lyceum Theatre. Shadowplay delves into this tumultuous world of façades and glamour—and into the passionate inner life of Dracula's creator—weaving an evocative tale of deception, ambition, and heartbreak. Set against the foggy backdrop of Jack the Ripper-era London, this is a poignant, gorgeously written novel. (SM)
