9780099553861: Countess Dracula (The Clown Service)

How far would you go to stay young and beautiful? A new novelization of the classic Hammer film, Countess Dracula.

One can do anything in Hollywood and be forgiven, anything except grow old. It's the 1930s and cinema stands at the dawn of a new age—the silent era is all but dead, talkies are here, and Technicolor is on its way. The whole world loves movie icons Frank Nayland and Elizabeth Sasdy, lapping up each new picture and following their romantic life story both on and off the screen; but all is not as perfect as it appears. Not only has the advent of talkies meant torturous sessions with a vocal coach to try and remove Sasdy's Hungarian accent, but she's starting to spot the first few grey hairs, and the lines on her face get deeper every day. If she loses her looks she'll lose everything, but even a woman as powerful as Elizabeth Sasdy can't fight nature—can she? A chance accident reveals the solution. But just how far is the Queen of Hollywood prepared to go to stay beautiful forever?

About the Author:

Guy Adams' books include a Torchwood novel, The House that Jack Built; the Heaven's Gate series, which includes The Good, the Bad, and the Infernal; and a pair of original Sherlock Holmes novels, The Breath of God and The Army of Doctor Moreau.

Review:

"Hammer have been reinventing themselves as a publisher of original fiction and novels inspired by their back catalogue of movie classics. This time it's the turn of Countess Dracula . . .  and they've found just the man for the job in Guy Adams."  —Starburst Magazine

"Guy Adams clearly knows his Hammer . . . a great read . . . If Hammer can keep up this standard we should have a lot to look forward to from future releases."  —Geek Planet Online
