The French Revolution is in full swing and Paris is awash in fear and the blood of its own nobility (or anyone else that the mobs deem a foe). However, one mysterious adventurer (some say phantom!) seems able to whisk away doomed nobles seemingly from under the very nose of the executioner—the infamous Scarlet Pimpernel.
French official Chauvelin will stop at nothing to uncover the Scarlet Pimpernel's identity, including forcing the unwilling help of Marguerite Blakeney, the French wife of England's richest and most foppish lord, Sir Percy Blakeney.
In this world of intrigue, death, and danger, nothing is as it seems.
