We seek him here, we seek him there, Those Frenchies seek him everywhere. Is he in Heaven or is he in Hell? That demmed elusive Pimpernel... As the French Revolution takes the lives and heads of countless French aristocrats, a heroic Englishman emerges from the chaos, snatching apparently doomed aristocrats from the clutches of Madame Guillotine and spiriting them to safety in England. The leaders of the Revolution are so desperate to stop their enemy that they will stop at nothing to capture... even forcing the woman he loves to betray him...

The first and most successful in the Baroness's series of books that feature Percy Blakeney, who leads a double life as an English fop and a swashbuckling rescuer of aristocrats, "The Scarlet Pimpernel was the blueprint for what became known as the masked-avenger genre. As Anne Perry writes in her Introduction, the novel "has almost reached its first centenary, and it is as vivid and appealing as ever because the plotting is perfect. It is a classic example of how to construct, pace, and conclude a plot. . . . To rise on the crest of laughter without capsizing, to survive being written, rewritten, and reinterpreted by each generation, is the mark of a plot that is timeless and universal, even though it happens to be set in England and France of 1792."
