Who is the Scarlet Pimpernel? In 1790s France, the revolution for a visionary new government takes a dark turn as the Reign of Terror demands the blood of its enemies, real and imagined. Royal sympathizers, aristocrats, entire families, critics of the new order - they all face death beneath the blade of Madame la Guillotine. In England, the monarchy is safe, and it appears that the lords and ladies cared more for fashion than politics. But one bold group of Englishmen led by the Scarlet Pimpernel, a brave and mysterious adventurer, dares to snatch these French prisoners away from the guillotine. France sends Citizen Chauvelin to England to unmask the Scarlet Pimpernel, and thus begins a battle of wits between a driven spy and Sir Percy Blakeney, the richest, best-dressed, much admired, and yet, seemingly, the most foolish man in England. Between the two men stands clever, beautiful, tortured Marguerite. Marguerite’s loyalty and honor will be tested in the face of blackmail and deceit. One wrong choice and someone she loves will die.
