Review

Rating: 7

A “memoir” in the style of Dumas, following the adventurous exploits of the duelist Valentin Rochefort after he’s forced to flee Paris due to circumstances beyond his control. Accompanying him is his arch-rival and fellow duelist as they travel from Paris to Shakespearean London and become embroiled in a plot to kill King James I. There are plenty more twists and turns involving an envoy from Japan, playwrights and prognosticators, not to mention Rosicrucians.
