From the Back Cover:

In the early hours of the morning a young lawyer is called to the home of a beautiful woman he has just met, where her archaeologist father lies in a coma, the victim of a mysterious attack. The injured man is discovered to be dabbling in ritual magic in an attempt to raise an ancient Egyptian queen from the dead. As the hour of his great experiment approaches, a deadly supernatural struggle begins. First published in 1903 as a successor to Dracula, this original version of the novel has never been reprinted before. This edition also includes the alternative ending for the 1912 revised edition.

About the Author:

Bram Stoker was an invalid as a child but later excelled as an athlete. After a stint in the Civil Service, he worked as the business manager of a theatre in London. He had the opportunity to meet many famous actors and to travel the world.
Stoker wrote many novels and stories, most of which were well - reviewed when they were first published, but 'Dracula' has exceeded the others in popularity. Like its famous villain, 'Dracula' refuses to grow old, feeding off each new fad in popular culture.
