At the height of the Belle Epoque, the bourgeois lawyer Fran´┐Żois Dubon lives a well-ordered life. He spends his days at his office, his evenings with his aristocratic wife -- and his afternoons with his generous mistress. But this complacent existence is shattered when a mysterious widow pays him a call. She insists only Dubon can rescue her innocent friend, an army captain by the name of Dreyfus who has been convicted of spying. Against his better judgment, Dubon is drawn into a case that will forever alter his life -- and tear France herself apart. Kate Taylor artfully mixes mystery and history in this page-turning jaunt through 19th-century Parisian society.
