STATES OF GRACE
CHELSEA QUINN YARBRO

Franzicco Ragoczy di Santo-Germano, also known as the vampire Saint-Germain, is living a good life as a successful merchant in Venice.  In fact, his lifestyle has attracted much attention.  However, his strong connection to the papacy has protected him.  In any case, he and his mistress are the victims of others spying on them.

Rogoczy learns that he has to travel to the Spanish Netherlands where he owns a publishing business.  While there, Rogoczy and writer, Erneste van Amsteljaxter are accused of heresy.  Rogoczy soon discovers he must return to Venice because there are many problems.  His fortune has been embezzled away and his mistress has disappeared. 

Once he arrives in Venice he finds several more problems.   A young man who has been spying on St. Germain has disappeared.  Another spy has discovered something about St. Germain.  What is it?  How does St. Germain manage to get out of this one?

When Chelsea Quinn Yarbro writes another book about the vampire Saint-Germain, readers know they are in for a special treat.  What makes this book all the more interesting is the fact that it is also a historical novel.  The book is well written and the author always does such an excellent job with detailed descriptions.  Do yourself a favor and read this book by Chelsea Quinn Yarbro.  If you are not already a fan of Saint-Germain, you certainly will be when you have finished reading this very entertaining book.
