Paris, 1789. Attica Morgan, the daughter of a Lord and a member of high society, is a woman of hidden talents: English spy, secret assassin, fearless fighter. The sole female member of a clandestine network, her new assignment is in Paris, a city where nothing is what it seems…
Because in Paris, revolution in the air. Skirmishes in the city are rife and English visitors are viewed with suspicion. Attica is charged with investigating the murder of a rebel in the morgue of the Bastille, that notorious prison of no return. A murder her backers are convinced is part of a much more treacherous plot.

‘Incredible! It’s the best action adventure novel I’ve ever read… A fantastic achievement that has blown me away with its ingenuity, scope and breathless pace.’ Louise Voss
