The Carpathian Assignment follows the story of Kalvary Istvan, who has been promoted to the Chief of Police in the “Carpathian city of Bistritz”. Shortly after arriving, Istvan is informed of a potential serial killer that has been active in the area for a lengthy amount of time.
A group of Roma citizens have been residing in the Carpathian forests for a long time away from the influence of the citizens of Bistritz. They have an uneven relationship with outsiders and so the disappearance of Roma people has not been thoroughly investigated until now.
Potentially hundreds of individuals have gone missing and there is only one suspect, the mysterious Count Dracula that has control of the Roma people. Now Istvan and his colleague, Gabor Kasza, must work together to uncover the whereabouts of Dracula and his followers in order to bring him to justice. Not as easy as it sounds when Dracula has an unknown amount of followers and any number of potential homes throughout the world.
I originally received this book from Netgalley for review and was then approached to see if I wanted to take part in the blog tour for this book. I quickly agreed and could not be more satisfied with my first experience taking part in a blog tour. The Carpathian Assignment was a fantastic new additional Dracula lore that has inspired so many novels and movies over the years. A perfect Halloween read for this month and one that I definitely recommend picking up.
