"Seth Hunter has a more natural storyteller's eye than Patrick O'Brian . . . well wrought and deftly told." --Daily Telegraph "A well-researched novel that draws you into the dangers of life in France post-1789. A highly compelling read." --Historical Novels Review "Rousing . . . a complex plot, written with wit, suspense, intrigue, and action. Along with a flawed but likable character, [Hunter] reveals the bloody history of the French Revolution, and establishes solid ground for the upcoming sequels." --Publishers Weekly
