‘A rip-roaring adventure.’ Tessa Harris, author of the Dr Thomas Silkstone Mysteries


The year is 1789 and revolution is in the air.

Attica Morgan – a rebellious and resourceful English spy – is laying low after an abortive mission. So when she’s offered a pardon in return for solving a gruesome murder in Paris, she jumps at the chance to redeem herself.

Once in the city, it becomes clear that tensions have risen to breaking point and the citizens are on the cusp of revolt. And, as she investigates, Attica uncovers a plot that leads her from the sewers of Paris to the court of Marie Antoinette. She quickly realises that she’s in a race to save more lives than her own before the revolution takes its bloody turn…

‘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, author of the Detective Lennon series
