Eugenie de Boncoeur is growing up in Paris, unaware that her guardian has contracted her to marry the sinister spymaster known as 'le Fantome' when she turns sixteen. She finds herself falling for the handsome lawyer, Guy Deschamps, but there is little time for romance; France is descending into chaos as the Revolution takes hold. Soon Eugenie is fleeing for her life. Her brother Armand has become involved in a plot to save the King from the guillotine, the mob is searching for aristocrats, and le Fantome, the pale assassin, is on their trail - desperate for revenge.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'An involving and well-researched novel (with) a lot of very convincing period detail ... The story is self-contained and ends satisfyingly, but with enough hooks to make the reader want the second and third parts as soon as possible!' * Writeaway website, June 2009 *
'Exciting and unpredictable ... you won't be able to put it down. History has never been so fun!' * Bliss magazine, July 2009 *
The best aspect of this fine work of historical fiction is Eugenie herself. Her gradual coming of age and growing political awareness provide even more depth to what becomes a highly suspenseful survival tale. * Booklist magazine, Oct 2009 *
