House of Cards

(1963)
A novel by

 
 
Former prize fighter Reno Davis, an American at loose ends in Paris, takes a job as guardian and protector of young Paul de Villemont, son of an aristocratic family in decline. But things are not as simple as they first appear. The boy is withdrawn and fearful, while his mother is beautiful, neurotic, and perhaps dangerous. Within the barred and shuttered de Villemont mansion there are dangerous forces, secrets that threaten not only young Paul, but Davis as well. House Of Cards is a love story, a tale of self discover, a story of international intrigue, and a memorable thriller.
