About Book

From AudioFile
Fans of the classic original, as well as those who like a rich historical novel, will enjoy this sequel to The Scarlet Pimpernel. Johanna Ward brings suspense and wit to this story of intrigue set in the days following the French Revolution. The author makes no secret of a bias for the aristocracy and a prejudice against the leaders of the French Republic, but Ward treats all of her characters with respect. She makes good use of her native British and superb French accents to help create vivid and complex personalities. Ward's great sense of mood and timing carry listeners through to the very end and keep them wondering how the Scarlet Pimpernel can possibly unravel the deadly trap that has been sprung. J.E.M.

Book Description
It was a mere flash! One of memory's swiftly effaced pictures, when she shows us for the fraction of a second indelible pictures from out our past. Chauvelin, in that same second, while his own eyes were closed and Robespierre's fixed upon him, also saw the lonely cliffs of Calais, heard the same voice singing "God save the King!" the volley of musketry, the despairing cries of Marguerite Blakeney; and once again he felt the keen and bitter pang of complete humiliation and defeat.

On! ever on! in that wild, surging torrent; sowing the wind of anarchy, of terrorism, of lust of blood and hate, and reaping a hurricane of destruction and of horror.
