Harry Keogh is a very special boy that grows into a talented man. He can speak to the dead and they listen! This makes him a Necroscope, a valuable resource to the British Secret Service. Just imagine, an agent is killed with vital information that the British needs. What do they do? Call Harry!
The book is full of great ideas that I have never read about. There are departments within the Russian and British secret services that use ESP to track nuclear Subs, predict the future, question the dead, kill with the evil eye!
Since reading this story, I have bough every single one of Lumley's books. That's how much I enjoyed this story.

This book concerns the young Harry Keogh, who can talk to the dead and becomes mixed up in a fight against Boris Dragosani, a guy who can torture dead people for their knowledge, and who is also working for Thibor Ferenczy, a near-dead vampire stuck in the ground in Eastern Europe somewhere. Because Dragosani is working for the Soviet Government, this pulls in a whole level of political intrigue which carries over to the rest of the series as well.
Dragosani (with his tendency to kill people for their psychic powers, and his slight derangement) and more so Thibor (with his great speeches and AAAAAAHHHHs) make a great pair of villains for the Necroscope to face off against. The characters are all well developed and interesting (more so than in the crowded volumes of the rest of the series) and Thibor makes an extremely cool and scary enemy to lurk in the dark.Read more ›
In talking with a friend at work, I got to thinking about this series again, and recently borrowed my books back from Bro.
Simply put, I had forgotten how fun, enjoyable, and just plain great to read these books are. Sure, there are problems with the books, but this one, which started it all, is great. It's not even my favorite!
Lumley's taking of the old vampire myth and 'updating' it to make them a fearsome symbiotic creature, while explaining many of the powers of vampires, is sheer brillance in it's simplicity. To put it another way: why didn't I think of this!!
This is a great book that's tense, well-developed, and a great, great read. And, 15 years later, you might just like it even more!!!
