What precipitated the overthrow of the Bourbon dynasty and what propelled Robespierre and Danton to power and dethroned them just as quickly? France in the late 18th century: a time of great enlightenment and great darkness; a time of death and discovery, of stretched loyalties and new commitments. Caught in a maelstrom of bloodshed and betrayal, torn by loyalty to the past and the promise of a new tomorrow, Philippe Mouniere, Marquis de Tournay, falls victim to a beautiful, young opera diva tied to a mysterious movement by a deadly secret that threatens to destroy all he values, condemning them both to a cruel destiny. Anchored in real events and using the tones and timbre of the period, the narrative hurls the reader along an historical rollercoaster through the splendour and treachery of Versailles, the coquetry of the Parisian clubs and the enthusiasm of the debating chamber - heady with the stink of tragedy and the bloody carnage that was Revolutionary Paris.
