The elusive Pimpernel returns for another swashbuckling adventure in El Dorado. The still-raging French Revolution continues to claim lives, and the shadow of the guillotine draws ever nearer to the young Dauphin, son of Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette. No one dares to attempt to liberate the little prince -- no one, that is, but the mysterious Sir Percy Blakeney, also known as the Scarlet Pimpernel. Sir Percy takes on one of Robespierre's agents, the scheming Citizen Chauvelin, in a suspenseful blend of action and political intrigue, recounted with captivating period detail. Unabridged republication of the classic 1913 edition.

The Scarlet Pimpernel only appears around page 80 of this book. Nevertheless, I enjoyed this book as much as the first novel written about him by Baroness Orczy and published, I believe, in 1905. Sir Percy is the epitome of the hero—unlike our modern ones—tall, handsome, well-dressed and, above all, a man of high principles and integrity.
