Supping With Panthers Summary

Supping With Panthers by Tom Holland

In 1888 Dr John Eliot returns to London haunted by the memory of a terrible expedition to a remote Himalayan kingdom, where he had uncovered horrors far beyond the frontiers of science. Yet Eliot's faith in reason is to be tested even further when the body of a friend, drained white of blood, is dragged up from the Thames, and another associate goes missing. Eliot's quest to uncover the mystery reveals a deadly conspiracy, but then, in the lair of an enigmatic Eastern adventuress, he glimpses hints of a truth yet more extraordinary, of dark and terrible pleasures, of a whole new world ...Vampires and immortals walk the gas-lit streets of Victorian London, mingling with Oscar Wilde, Bram Stoker and Lord Byron, and Tom Holland meshes fact with fiction in this brilliantly imaginative novel of passion and suspense.

Supping With Panthers Reviews

'Goes at a cracking pace with its wit, superb sense of humour and literary cross-references' SCOTSMAN 'A ripping yarn' INDEPENDENT 'Meticulous about literary and historical accuracy - scarily bright' DAILY TELEGRAPH 'Charged with an authentic poetic force' PUBLISHING NEWS 'A brilliant, new fin-de-siecle vampire mystery.' BOOKSELLER 'It's as if Tom Hollan doesn't know when to stop- but once you start reading, you're glad he doesn't... Different voices are superbly segued and the pacing is immaculate... The novel is an expert mix of the fantastical and the real.' THE SCOTSMAN 'A gothic novel for the present day, oozing atmospgere and dripping with menace.' YORKSHIRE POST
