Shadowbox (A Novel)

Shadowbox: Every man has an enemy within him.

Paris 1832. Fleeing a crime he cannot forget, Louis Beauregard drowns the memory in debauchery and revels – a life of excess that threatens to alienate his friends and cast him adrift in a city famous for glittering seductions and violent Revolution.

Mad, bad and dangerous to know, his trail attracts others who seek his fortune. But one of these men has a deeper desire: to avenge the death of his father.

Amongst the artisans of Montmartre and the tombs of Notre Dame, he will hunt Louis down and bring him to justice. Of any sort.

Both haunted by the death of the same man. Each striving to find meaning in the midst of their grief. And beneath it all, the Sacred Kingship of Old Europe, a destiny that drives men to destroy their rivals – or their dreams.

SHADOWBOX is the spellbinding new novel by the author of THE LAST RHINEMAIDEN.

In June 2014 I published a series of posts about my novel, SHADOWBOX. You can read these from the start, and each one should link to the next. Links on where to buy the novel are at the bottom of the page.
