Review by

A murder mystery and half-hearted twist of history set during the French Revolution. Suspenseful, but the conclusion is a rather weak soap-opera ramble. The descriptions of Paris streets and living conditions are evocative, and the infodumps kept to a minimum. Celie and the other characters carry the story, though not very vivid in their own right, and the political stance of the author is fairly balanced - humanity is paramount, not monarchy or the republic.
