'He was alive when he went in the mortuary.'

1789. The Bastille is marked for destruction. Skirmishes in the city are rife and revolution is in the air. When a gruesomely murdered rebel is found in the prison morgue, a plot is suspected.

English spy, Attica Morgan, is laying low after an abortive mission. So when she's given an assignment inside the Bastille, her instinct is to run. Instead, she's offered a pardon, in return for solving the mystery of the dead revolutionary; and exposing a plot that leads to Marie Antoinette.

But as tensions rise to breaking point in the city, Attica quickly realises she's in a race against time. Soon there could be no Bastille to investigate.

'Incredible! It's the best action adventure novel I've ever read... A fantastic achievement that has blown me away with its ingenuity, scope and breathless pace.' Louise Voss, author of the Detective Lennon series

Genre: Historical Mystery

Praise for this book

"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

"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

"A rip-roaring adventure with an exciting new heroine at its heart." - Tessa Harris

"A galloping ventre à 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

"Delicious, brilliant and totally absorbing. This pacy, atmospheric thriller... is absolutely unputdownable with its sharp, witty writing and spot on period description." - Carol McGrath
