The numerous ?Scarlet Pimpernel? stories, set in the turbulent times of the French Revolution at the close of the 18th century, were phenomenally popular with their readers. However, their author, Baroness Orczy, despite the success Sir Percy Blakeney had brought her, could sometimes not resist diversifying from her well-loved central theme, including in her telling of the adventures of one of Sir Percy?s ancestors in the novels ?The Laughing Cavalier? and its sequel ?The First Sir Percy?. In this present volume, however, Baroness Orczy introduces us to one of the Pimpernel?s descendents, his great, great grandson. Set in the 20th century after the First World War, this novel features a new character, Peter Blakeney, a famous cricket player, who follows his long-time friend and lost love Rosemary to Hungary. There he involves himself in plots, spying, mysteries and intrigue as he attempts to save his mother?s family and rescue Rosemary from a double agent. Business as usual for a Pimpernel! The second book in this final volume of the Leonaur ?Scarlet Pimpernel? series returns to the escapades of the iconic Pimpernel himself as he battles to save the innocent from the blade of the guillotine in a collection of eight riveting shorter stories.
