After bumping into his ex-wife Maggie while on his first private investigation job in months, chronically-unemployed vampire Winston Lamb thought things couldn’t get any worse. But after discovering the antique teapot he and Maggie were chasing is magic and allows one to jump between mythological realms, he realizes how wrong he was.
Now he’s on the run and pursued by a wide variety of evil witches, soul-stealing ice monsters and, most ruthless of all, government bureaucrats. This sparks off an adventure that plunges him and his bumbling crew into the wondrous and terrifying realm of the Abenaki people of New England.
As they hide from, flee, bargain with, and grovel to the strange creatures they meet there, Winston finds the thought of his shabby, unheated office in East London not so bad. If only they can find a way home.
