Plot Summary

  • Sherlock Holmes agrees to investigate suspected murders in a village whose ancestors had killed a prominent family a century ago that they thought were vampires. These deaths appear to be linked to a descendant of that family, a man who seems to have something malevolently supernatural about him, much like a vampire itself.

  • The Reverend Merridew entreats Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson to come and bring reason to his simple village. A century earlier the inhabitants killed a prominent family thought to be vampires. John Stockton, a descendant of that family, has recently returned, and the people fear supernatural retribution. When a blacksmith dies while under an intense gaze from the man, followed shortly by the death of an infant whom he merely touched the night before, Holmes heeds the call - not to solve a murder but to prevent one before unreasoning fear takes hold and the town becomes a lynch mob once again.
