Paris, 1815. A shadow of uncertainty hangs over the nation's future as long as one question remains unanswered. What is the real fate of the young Dauphin, held prisoner in the Temple where his mother Marie Antoinette spent her last days? History says he died, but rumors persist that he escaped. The answer holds interest for the British government, which sends time-traveling sleuth Nicholas Segalla to uncover the truth. Martin's Press.
