Summary
Paris, 1815. Napoleon has just surrendered at Waterloo and is on his way to the island of St. Helena to begin his exile. Meanwhile, Daniel Connor, a young medical student from Edinburgh, has just arrived in Paris to study anatomy at the Jardin des Plantes, only to realize that his letters of introduction and a gift of precious coral specimens, on which his tenure with the legendary Dr. Cuvier depends, have been stolen by the beautiful woman with whom he shared a stagecoach. In trying to recover his lost valuables, Daniel discovers that his beautiful adversary is in fact a philosopher-thief who lives in a shadowy world of outlaws. Daniel falls in love with the mysterious coral thief as she draws him into an audacious plot that will leave him with a future very different from the one he has envisioned for himself. A mix of history, philosophy, and suspense, this book conjures up both the feats of Napoleon and the accomplishments of those working without fame or glory to change our ideas of who we are and the world in which we live.--B.I.P
