This is one of the best historical audiobooks in my library. Really drew me in to the real-life details of the French revolutionary period and the début of Napoleon Bonaparte as well as the start of the Dumas family fame. Different in perspective from Dickens' Tale of Two Cities and from Dumas' Count of Monte Cristo, The Black Count speaks of the political and military roles in the revolution.
My first discovery of Harlen Coben. Stands out from many mystery writers, and I have read hundreds. I will definitely look for more work from this author. Even the parts I thought were predictable turned out to have great twists. And it all tied together logically.
