The French nobility are living in terror; one by one they are sent to the guillotine. Revenge at last for the years of callousness and cruelty suffered by the people of France. There is no escape; the city walls of Paris are guarded day and night. And yet a few achieve the impossible, disappearing without a trace in Paris, only to re-emerge in the safety of England. Rumours abound of a group of young English gentleman of unparalleled daring. Under their anonymous leader they save scores of aristocrats from terrible deaths. And each time a note is put mockingly into the hands of the merciless tribunal chairman, Citoyen Tinville. On it is the stamp of the Scarlet Pimpernel. Tinville will do or pay anything to see the Englishmen dead but they seem to evade capture with almost devilish ease. But with the cunning and ruthless spy master, Chauvelin, on his trail, the Scarlet Pimpernel must make no slip for he has everything to lose. [via]
