    " This book started off kind of slow, but picked up a lot of speed at the end. It had a lot of twists and turns in the last little bit that made it all worth while. "

    " Good book. The writing is smooth and easy to read. I wish I knew more about the background of the story to know the truth of this author's rendition. But, I can tell you this - there are enough red herrings in this story to keep you guessing until the very end. Read this book - you won't regret having done so. "

    " Paris, after the Revolution, after Napoleon. Vidocq, once a master criminal, now a master detective. The Dauphin, son of Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette, dead? or alive? This one is an inventive, atmospheric and engaging read. "
