Another great Nicholas Le Floch story, this time involving Marie Antoinette initially.
He travels to Austria to deliver a bust of her to her mother, but is secretly checking up on the French secret intelligence in that country.
When he returns to Paris he finds all is not well including the death of a baker.
Jean - Francois Parot never fails to paint vivid pictures of life in Paris during this troubled time and I look forward to reading more from him.
I was given a digital copy of this book by the publisher Gallic Books via Netgalley in return for an honest unbiased review. ( )
