Description
For her first novel, Mistress of the Revolution, which the Associated Press dubbed one of the "best reads of the year," Catherine Delors earned comparisons to Tracy Chevalier and Philippa Gregory. In For the King, she again demonstrates her matchless ability to illuminate key turning points in history while weaving a gripping story about a man caught between his heart and his integrity. The Reign of Terror has ended, and Napoleon Bonaparte has seized power, but shifting political loyalties still tear apart families and lovers. On Christmas Eve 1800, a bomb explodes along Bonaparte's route, narrowly missing him but striking dozens of bystanders. Chief Inspector Roch Miquel, a young policeman with a bright future and a beautiful mistress, must arrest the assassins before they attack again. Complicating Miquel's investigation are the maneuverings of his superior, the redoubtable Fouche, the indiscretions of his own father, a former Jacobin, and two intriguing women. Based on real events and characters and rich with historical detail, For the King takes listeners through the dark alleys and glittering salons of post-revolutionary Paris and is a timeless epic of love, betrayal, and redemption.

display_description "It's Christmas Eve in Paris in the year 1800, eight years after the execution of King Louis XVI and a year since First Consul Napoleon Bonaparte seized power. Amid a backdrop of political turmoil, all of the city's elite, including Bonaparte himself, are expected to attend the premiere of the year's most anticipated musical event at the Opera. But as his carriage approaches the theater, a massive bomb detonates on Rue Saint-Nicaise, narrowly missing Bonaparte but killing and maiming dozens of bystanders. Chief Inspector Roch Miquel, a young man with a bright future and a beautiful mistress, must find and arrest the assassins before the strike again. But in a city of almost a million...Roch's task is near impossible..."--Dust jacket flap.
