"Moving from one cliffhanger to another the struggle between the Rennepont family and two cunning Jesuits unfolds. Having lost their position and their wealth during the French persecution of the Protestants, what is left of the Rennepont's family fortune has been entrusted for 150 years to a loyal Jewish banker and his heirs. In order to reclaim their fortune the surviving members of the Rennepont family are directed to meet at an address in Paris in 1832--only those present on the given date will divide the inheritance. Drama ensues when two Jesuits and a female accomplice devise a plan to keep the Renneponts from their inheritance and to claim it for the The Society of Jesus."--B&N
