Fans of the classic original, as well as those who like a rich historical novel, will enjoy this sequel to The Scarlet Pimpernel. Johanna Ward brings suspense and wit to this story of intrigue set in the days following the French Revolution. The author makes no secret of a bias for the aristocracy and a prejudice against the leaders of the French Republic, but Ward treats all of her characters with respect. She makes good use of her native British and superb French accents to help create vivid and complex personalities. Ward’s great sense of mood and timing carry listeners through to the very end and keep them wondering how the Scarlet Pimpernel can possibly unravel the deadly trap that has been sprung.
