About the Book

What Evil Haunts the Shadows of 1870s Paris?

Baron Ferdinand Harsanyi — After his wife's mysterious death, this Austrian attaché holds control over mines whose coveted ore could turn the tide of war.

Therese Harsanyi — Swept up in new romance and the spectacle of Paris, the Baron's daughter is blind to the dangers stalking her family and the city she loves.

Rudolph Harsanyi — Unsure whom to trust, the Baron's son's grief over his mother's death twists into growing anger and a desire to break free.

As France and Prussia plunge toward war, one family is caught in a web of deceit, political intrigue, and murder that threatens to tear them apart.

My Review

My wife read this novel because my TBR stack is too tall at the moment and offered her comments. She, my mom, and I loved According to Their Deeds. So she was eager to read Paul's new novel and wasn't disappointed. What an intriguing story—and yet so much different from ATTD. The history was fascinating because I was unfamiliar with the period and these events. The author must have done a ton of research to pull this story off! Quite impressive. And the plot really pulled me along through a fascinating tale worth reading. The faith message could have been stronger, but that seems to be par for the course in so much Christian fiction now. Still, this was a thoroughly enjoyable, engaging read all the way through. Don't miss it!
