Synopsis

Winter 1862, London. Adelaide McKee, a former prostitute, arrives on the doorstep of veterinarian John Crawford, a man she met once seven years earlier. Their brief meeting produced a child who, until now, had been presumed dead. McKee has learned that the girl livesbut that her life and soul are in mortal peril from a vampiric ghost. But this is no ordinary spirit; the bloodthirsty wraith is none other than John Polidori, the onetime physician to the mad, dangerous Romantic poet Lord Byron. Both McKee and Crawford have mysterious histories with creatures like Polidori, and their child is a prize the malevolent spirit covets dearly. Polidori is also the late uncle and supernatural muse to poet Christina Rossetti and her brother, painter Dante Gabriel Rossetti. When she was fourteen, Christina unwittingly brought Polidoris curse upon her family. But the curse bestowed unexpected blessings as well, inspiring both Christina and Gabriels work. But when Polidori resurrects Dantes dead wifeturning her into a vampireand threatens other family members, Christina and Dante agree they must destroy their monstrous uncle and break the spell, even if it means the end of their creative powers. Determined to save their daughter, McKee and Crawford join forces with the Rossettis, and soon these wildly mismatched allies are plunged into a supernatural London underworld whose existence goes beyond their wildest imaginings. Ultimately, each of these disparate individuals must choose between the banality and constraints of human life and the unholy immortality that Polidori offers. Sweeping from the mansions of Londons high society to its grimy slums, the elegant salons of the West End to the pre-Roman catacombs beneath St. Pauls Cathedral, Hide Me among the Graves blends the historical and the supernatural in a dazzling, edge-of-your-seat thrill ridea modern horror story with a Victorian twist.
