Publisher's Summary

It has been 10 years since Juliette de Marny's father asked her to swear revenge upon Deroulede for the death of her brother in a duel. At last, she finds herself in Deroulede's house, with an easy opportunity to betray him to the citizens of France for conspiring against the people. But Juliette realizes, too late, that she is in love with Deroulede. Can the Scarlet Pimpernell rescue Deroulede from certain death by guillotine? Will Deroulede forgive Juliette for her betrayal of him? Romance and intrigue abound in this delightful swashbuckler.

Critic Reviews

"Johanna Ward is fun to listen to. She puts the author's rather melodramatic prose in the best possible light by reading with restraint, gravity, and authority." (AudioFile)

When Orczy is at her best...

she is a rival for Dumas, Shakespeare and the Greek playwrights. Here we have Electra, Hamlet, and the Count Of Monte Cristo all rolled up into a compelling little novel in the ongoing Percy Blackley/Scarlet Pimpernel series. Would love to see even more of Orzcy on Audible.

Nice and short

Pretty good story and I enjoyed the narration although somewhat predictable, especially if you are familiar with other books by Baroness Orczy.
