Produktbeschreibung
Spy-catcher Chauvelin travels to England to find Sir Percy Blakeney, the Scarlet Pimpernel, and take him back to France where he'll be put to death. With help from a struggling actress, Chauvelin attempts to bring the hero to justice. Sir Percy Blakeney and his wife, Marguerite have left France and are currently staying in England. Following the events of the previous book, the French officer Chauvelin is even more committed to the capture of the elusive Scarlet Pimpernel. He hires a young actress, Désirée Candielle, to help manipulate both Marguerite and Sir Percy. When the parties collide, Chauvelin and Sir Percy are forced into a duel that has potentially fatal consequences for everyone involved. The Elusive Pimpernel is another entry in the popular Scarlet Pimpernel series. It gives a better look at what drives the villainous Chauvelin. With the addition of his partner, Désirée, this is a multilayered story with higher stakes and a more dangerous outcome. With an eye-catching new cover, and professionally typeset manuscript, this edition of The Elusive Pimpernel is both modern and readable.

Autorenporträt
Baroness Orczy (1865-1947) was initially born in Hungary but raised throughout Europe. She was educated in Brussels, London, Paris and Budapest where she studied creative arts. In 1899, Orczy would publish her first novel entitled, The Emperor's Candlesticks. It wasn't a massive success but led to more writing opportunities including a series of detective stories. A few years later, she wrote and produced a stage play called The Scarlet Pimpernel, which she'd later adapt into a novel. It went on to become her most famous work and is considered a literary masterpiece of the twentieth century.
