I got this hardcover from a local Savers thrift shop. It's a novel inspired by Countess Elizabeth Bathory of Hungary, who was reputed to bathe in the blood of her maids to retain her youthful appearance. The story weaves in the fate of a (fictional) modern-day descendent of the Countess, who's attempting to justify his own crimes based on his family's gruesome history. Lots of Hungarian history, past and relatively recent, plus details of the locales and culture - all framed against the horrific deeds being committed (and not just by the Bathory characters).
