Review:

"Henrietta Lightfoot's exploits in Revolutionary France are irresistible. She's a heroine you can't put down." LUCY WORSLEY "A deliciously dark novel" Red Magazine "Georgette Heyer meets Flashman ... A gleefully modern retelling of a juicy chapter in history" The Times "Rubenhold unfolds a complicated plot with great dexterity, brilliantly evoking a society in which traditional bonds are being sundered." Sunday Times "'Compelling and operatic ... Reads like a modern thriller'" SIMON SEBAG MONTEFIORE, author of The Romanovs
