From the acclaimed author of The Pale Blue Eye, this literary thriller features Eugene Vidocq, a criminal who transformed himself into the world's first and greatest detective. After the execution of Marie Antoinette and King Louis XVI and the death of their son, the Dauphin, the Bourbon monarchy has at last been restored. Dr. Hector Carpentier leads a very quiet life, until he meets legendary police officer Vidocq, who has used his mastery of disguise and surveillance and his extensive knowledge of the Parisian underworld to capture some of the most notorious and elusive criminals. Now with the help of Carpentier, Vidocq may prove that the Dauphin lives, which could change the course of history.

This was a really enjoyable historical mystery set in France. This audio version was so well narrated that it added a lot of character to an already good story.
