And does his colleague, Maxwell's partner Jacquie Carpenter, unwittingly have the same information?

Vlad the Impaler : in search of the real Dracula by M. J Trow( Book )
9 editions published between 2003 and 2015 in English and held by 322 libraries worldwide
"'Here begins a very cruel, frightening story about a wild, bloodthirsty man, Dracula the voivod ...' Historian and crime writer M.J. Trow draws back the dark curtain of legend to look at the real Vlad Țepeș, set against the background of his times. Later generations associated him with pure evil and accepted the stories of his murders, mutilations and impalements without question. And later still, thanks to Bram Stoker, he shifted his shape into the doyen of the undead, complete with haunted castles, terrifying bats and an unearthly aversion to sunlight. The real Vlad Dracula lived in Transylvania, in the horseshoe of the Carpathian Mountains (today's Romania) and ruled his state of Wallachia three times. Making war against the Ottoman Turks, rivals to his throne and keeping his people in check, his was a life steeped in blood. But was he 'a prince more sinned against than sinning'? To Romanians, he is a hero on a white horse, a nationalist leader who carried out dreadful deeds in order to save the country he loved. To others, he was a rapacious homicidal maniac whose cruelty has no parallel, in his day or any other. This stylishly-written and compelling narrative unravels the true story behind the image and takes us into the heart of the bloody, uncertain world of Medieval Europe." -- Page 4 of cover

Paul's counterpart is Hector Gold, who is accompanied to Leighford by his eccentric family including his wife Camille and her parents, Jeff and Alana O'Malley. Clearly Jeff O'Malley is quite a character - with money to burn he has been gate-crashing the local poker school, much to the dismay of its members. When events take a sinister turn and Sarah Gregson, one of the poker school's members, is found murdered, newly-promoted Inspector Jacquie Carpenter Maxwell and Henry Hall investigate, with the assistance of Maxwell. As it becomes apparent Sarah suspected Jeff of cheating and Jeff was sacked in LA for being a crooked cop, is this simply a case of murder as revenge for name-calling? Being quite the expert in solving murders, Maxwell believes there is more to it
