Publisher's Summary

The roads in and out of Paris are heavily guarded, but the dead have easy passage out of the city. A ragged old woman transports the coffins of the most recent victims of the guillotine and is waved on unimpeded. Later, the same crone watches five French aristocrats step out of their coffins unscathed. Not beheaded, but spirited away to safety by that most elusive of spies: the Pimpernel. Or, as she’s known in polite society, Lady Scarlet Cavendish.

When not assuming her secret identity as a hero of the French Revolution, Scarlet presents herself as a fashionable, featherbrained young widow flitting about London. In truth, this façade is merely a diversion designed to conceal her clandestine work in France. Among members of the doomed French aristocracy, the Pimpernel is renowned for her bravery and cunning. But when tasked with rescuing handsome Comte Matteo Durand, she faces an unprecedented challenge: she is falling in love with the man. If ever there was a time to keep her head, it is now - because in a world brimming with intrigue, she is not the only one harboring secrets. And if Scarlet doesn’t take care, Madame la Guillotine may finally catch up with the Pimpernel....

Loved it!

What a cool twist on the Scarlet Pimpernel original story. The beginning took me a minute to sort out characters and the narrator was not naturally switching between accents very easily but once I got further into the book it all smoothed out. I loved that the anticipation of when everyone’s secrets would be revealed and the description of the clothing. I loved being able to know all their thoughts and the character development on Matteo. It’s got action, romance, a greater cause, some real historical grounding points, it was great.

Well Done!

The Pimpernel was my favorite book in High School. This is a wonderful homage! Must read or listen!
