Springtime in Paris -- but it's 1791The French Revolution has been churning for two years.  Hot passions still run through the streets, and when a young deaf boy is accused of murdering a radical activist for the poor, mobs want blood.  Anne Cartier is the boy's teacher- and the only one who stands between him and swift street justice.  Then his accuser disappears...

August, 1793 -- Revolutionary Paris!  Louis XVI: lost his head.  Marie Antoinette: about to stand trial. The streets are charged with tension and excitement- and the people are hungry.  Any enemy of the Republic found guilty has only one sentence: death.  And a murderer is stalking the streets carrying out his own executions, his victims decapitated like those sent to the guillotine. Aristide Ravel, freelance investigator for the Paris police must track this demon though the dark alleys of Paris- and the dark reaches of his own past.
Susanne Alleyn began this series with Game of Patience, then A Treasury of Regrets, and The Cavalier of the Apocalypse, which received a starred review from Publishers Weekly.  Always good advice: Keep Your Head!
