A daring plan to restore the French monarchy takes a murderous turn…

A superb novel of intrigue and murder set against the terrifying backdrop of the French Revolution from acclaimed historical novelist Anne Perry. Perfect for fans of C.J. Sansom and Susanna Gregory.

‘A tale that is rich in intrigue, suspicion and the violence that rules the streets of Paris’ – Northern Echo

It is January 1793. France is at war with Belgium, Prussia and Austria, and Louis XVI has just been sentenced to death. In Paris, a small group of people fear for the future of a throneless France surrounded by countries terrified that republican ideas – or anarchy – will spread throughout the continent. They are determined to rescue the king, but when their leader is murdered a plan must be pieced together and executed within three days.
