Summary
Richard Marsh's best-selling supernatural thriller The Beetle: A Mystery, was even more popular than Bram Stoker's Dracula when it was first released; both being published in the same year, 1897. Inflicting damage with his hypnotic and shape-shifting powers, a strange oriental figure shadows an English politician to London
