The Scarlet Pimpernel, Paperback
4 out of 5 (1 rating)


The Terror has begun. Paris, 1792. Each day scores of the French nobility feed the guillotine.

They are trapped in the capital. There is no escape. But rumours whisper of a league of young English gentleman of unparalleled daring who are risking their lives to spirit aristocrats across the Channel.

They leave no trace behind them except a note from the 'Scarlet Pimpernel'.

The ruthless spy master Chauvelin is determined to stop the rescuers by fair means or foul, and, desperately outnumbered, the Scarlet Pimpernel and his men must use all their wits to evade capture and stay alive.
