Publisher's Summary

Set during the Reign of Terror following the start of the French Revolution... The title character represents the original "hero with a secret identity" that inspired subsequent literary creations such as Don Diego de la Vega (El Zorro) and Bruce Wayne (the Batman). The popularity of the novel encouraged Orczy to write a number of sequels for her "reckless daredevil" over the next 35 years. The original play was performed to great acclaim in France, Italy, Germany, and Spain, while the novel was translated into 16 languages. Subsequently, the story has been adapted for television, film, a musical, and other media.

Good book. Sub-par reading

Enjoyed the story very much. Don't get this version if you want to listen in a car though. The reader's voice volume fluctuates wildly and often she whispers and is difficult to hear.

Wonderful

Love this book, it was read beautifully! Lots of emotion, inflection, and tones to distinguish different characters which helps to really get into the story!
