Who is the Scarlet Eroica? This dashing and mysterious thief who has turned his talents toward rescuing French aristocrats from the guillotine has sent the English court into an uproar. Everyone wants to know who he really is, especially Citizen Franco Juliani.
He's not Dorian Red, the Earl of Gloria, that much is certain! Gloria is much more concerned with the fit of his coat and the fall of his cravat. His only interest in France is their tailors. And he is, not to put too fine a point on it, a nincompoop.
And he's not Major Klaus Heinz von der Eberbach, military liasion from Bonn to the Court of St. James. The Major might have sympathies towards the aristos, given his family connection to the Habsburgs, but he is a man of upstanding morals.
But - what mysterious shadow lies over the Major's recent transfer from Paris to London? And why has Gloria's ardent pursuit of the Major suddenly cooled? And, most important of all, will Eroica and his Gang succeed in rescuing the Dauphin? Or will the Scarlet Eroica face the guillotine himself?
