"Honorable, acerbic, and resourceful AndrŽ-Louis Moreau, the reputed son of a French aristocrat, born on the wrong side of the blanket, is forced into hiding when he makes a bitter enemy of the wicked Marquis de La Tour d'Azyr. Moreau's adventures lead him to assume many roles--from actor Scaramouche to fencing master to politician--as his life and his part in the coming French Revolution unfold. Simon Vance is masterful in his delivery of this swashbuckling story. With his smooth, mesmerizing British accent and ability to make each character distinct and memorable, this is a feast for the ears. Not to be missed. A.C.P.
