Abstract:

Amid the turmoil of the French Revolution, day after day the hungry guillotine claims the lives of innocents. Yet one Englishman fills the hearts of the terror-stricken nobility with hope, and the heart of Chauvelin, French agent of the new republic, with hatred. That man is the fearless Scarlet Pimpernel, who, known only by his sign - a star-shaped flower - spirits aristocrats across the Channel to safety.

Only Lady Marguerite Blakeney, wife of the rich, foolish Sir Percy Blakeney, can reveal the identity of the bravest man in England. Will Chauvelin's blackmail force her to do so? And if she must, can the Scarlet Pimpernel outwit his enemy and escape Chauvelin's deadly trap?
