'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...

MEDIA REVIEWS
A true treasure of a historical novel... Enjoyable and deeply satisfying with a rich array of characters and a sense of danger which lasts throughout. * Paul Doherty, author of the A Brother Athelstan Medieval Mystery series *
A rip-roaring adventure with an exciting new heroine at its heart. * Tessa Harris, author of the Dr Thomas Silkstone Mysteries *
A sparkling extravaganza of a read - fast-paced, exciting and utterly gripping from explosive start to satisfying ending. Lively, intriguing [and] wonderful... I can't wait for the next one. * Joanna Courtney, author of the Queens of Conquest series *
Delicious, brilliant and totally absorbing. This pacy, atmospheric thriller... is absolutely unputdownable with its sharp, witty writing and spot on period description. * Carol McGrath, author of The Daughters of Hastings series *
The Bastille Spy is incredible! It's the best action adventure novel I've ever read... I can't wait for the next instalment. A fantastic achievement that has blown me away with its ingenuity, scope and breathless pace. * Louise Voss, author of the Detective Lennon Thriller Series *
A galloping ventre a terre from start to finish. Attica Morgan is rebellious, resourceful, and perfectly willing to show that whatever an eighteenth century man can do, she can do better, and with flair. * Sarah Hawkswood, author of the Bradecote and Catchpoll series *
The Bastille Spy is a rollicking read - a cross between Lara Croft and Pirates of the Caribbean, all transported to revolutionary era France. * David Penny, author of the Thomas Berrington series *
This is really captivating, vivid writing. Descriptions that come straight off the pages and permeate deep into your senses, and a truly electrifying pace. Quinn is a brilliant new talent! * Peter James, author of Dead at First Sight, on C.S. Quinn *
Sharp, atmospheric and sumptuous. * Simon Toyne, author of Sanctus, on C.S. Quinn *
