The Fangs of the Hooded Demon: A Lincoln Blackthorne Adventure

Geoffrey Marsh, Author Tor Books $17.95 (281p) ISBN 978-0-312-93100-1
Marsh conjures up a third roistering tale about Lincoln Blackthorne, the mild tailor who longs for the quiet life that fate denies him. Sinister doings in Linc's New Jersey town start him on the trail of criminal types lusting for a priceless object. From the East Coast to West, the lone paladin battles continuously with thieves who will stop at nothing to possess the fabulous fangs of the original Dracula. The treasure eludes Linc time and again until, in the dramatic denouement, he gallantly saves himself and the lovely Tania from the hooded demon, a giant cobra. This thriller-spoof, as merry as it is horrifying, is enriched by Linc's crackpot pals: starchy Old Alice, kibitzing Macon Crowley, and a host of con artists, killers and netherworld creatures.
