When the past reaches into the present, when New York faces the repetition of gruesome murders, when a 150 year old body's found with lips sewn together, no one thinks there might be a connection to the past.
So an Antropologist and a successful NYPD police cop are assigned to do some research about the old body. They soon discover that recent murders and the almost mummified corpse do have similarities. Their research takes them back to New York's past, partucilarly into the year 1863, where similar murders happened and when their John Doe has been killed.

In the year 1863 Count Draculyia arrives in New York, prepared to fight a "death-threatening" fight with a Damphyr, the fallen, brutal angel, Adam Worth.
With Echo and Matthew Van Helsing, seeking revenge for their fathers death, breathing down his neck, he tries to correct the wrongs of their past.

An ok book if you're not demanding something that keeps you on the edge of your seat.
The book is all about New York, it's past, the civil war and very picturesque. I caught myself skipping all this descriptions about surroundings and how New York has been built and structured back in 1863.
Due to all this descriptions the plot fell a bit short without much substance.

Wonderful! Not a romance but an interesting "historical"-ish murder mystery. Lots of connections. Great fast read. Held my attention the whole time.
