Sherlock Holmes vs. Dracula (1980)

This 1980 (?) paperback reprint of Loren D. Estleman's Holmes-Dracula crossover drops the secondary title, The Adventure of the Sanguinary Count, from the cover art.

HOLMES AMONG THE UNDEAD... 
A mysterious schooner runs aground in an English harbor. Its cargo, fifty boxes of earth; its only living passenger; a black dog. The captain's lifeless body is lashed to the wheel––completely drained of blood. Soon, a rash of bizarre nocturnal crimes terrifies London. Plainly, this is the work of Count Dracula––and a case for Sherlock Holmes. 
Lovers of the Holmes stories will find their hero in a new role here, as the avenger in a realm where pale corpses rise from their graves and go forth by night to feast on blood.
