After defeating Van Helsing and rising to power in Great Britain and Germany, Count Dracula is finally dead. But with Dracula a relic of the past, the world needs a fresh monster. In Transylvania, the vampire Kate Reed is on the set of Francis Ford Coppola's troubled movie production of Dracula. When Kate meets a young vampire called Ion Popescu, she is compelled to help him escape and begin a new life in America, where he reinvents himself as Johnny Pop. He makes his name -- and his fortune -- selling a new dangerously addictive drug that confers vampire powers on its users, and becomes a hit on the decadent New York art scene.
