With swordfights and romance, adventure and treachery set against the backdrop of the French Revolution, this is the book that made Rafael Sabatini famous. Andre-Louis Moreau has good prospects as a young lawyer, but an unfair duel with the ruthlessly cruel Count de La Tour d'Azyr leaves Andre-Louis' best friend dead and Andre-Louis himself a fugitive from the king's justice. While incognito, he becomes both a wildly popular actor and a firebrand of the Revolution. His vow to avenge his friend's murder leads him deeper into the political intrigues that surround the Revolution and to a position of power. But there are secrets to be revealed that will stun all of Paris. One of the best historical romances of all time, Scaramouche was a bestseller upon its original publication in the United States in 1921.

"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.
