  • The terror was here as well as there.

    This book is about what happens to one boy, apparently orphaned by the terror of the French Revolution, who escapes to England in the care of a group of French aristocrats. Because his mother was English his fate involves English people who are related to him. Despite having read quite a few of Andrew Taylor's books, all of which I liked, I was ready to give up on this book because of its gruesome content. I persevered and although I didn't warm to any of the protagonists I was glad that the ending was satisfactory, albeit with a sting in the tail. I did learn a bit about the life of the emigres in England and the fact that the government was suspicious of them. If you like Andrew Taylor then it is worth a read, but if this will be your first read I suggest you try his more recent books first.

    Thanks for your feedback!
