Description
The notorious Vlad the Impaler—chief inspiration for Bram Stoker's Dracula—leaves Eastern Europe for Mexico, in this novel by the Cervantes Prize–winning author of Terra Nostra and The Death of Artemio Cruz. Vlad has need of both a lawyer and a real estate agent in order to establish his new kingdom, and Yves Navarro and his wife Asunción fit the bill nicely. Having recently lost a son, might they not welcome the chance to see their remaining child live forever? More importantly, are the pleasures of middle-class life enough to keep one from joining the legions of the damned?

"A deliciously barbed bagatelle from a fiction master, with perhaps a strain of allegory for a world devoured by rapaciousness."—Publishers Weekly
