During the glory days of the Roaring Twenties, budding artist Francis Bacon heads to Paris to paint, love, and spy. Francis Bacon was having a ball in Berlin—until his uncle Lastings disappeared, leaving Francis alone, broke, and wanted by the burgeoning Nazi party for a political murder he didn’t commit. Luckily, for a young painter still learning his craft, there is no better place to find refuge than the cafes of Paris. In the City of Light, Francis can perfect his French, complete his education, and—if he’s lucky—escape with his life. But strolling along the boulevard one lovely evening, he hears gunshots and sees a Russian emigrant cut down by an assassin. Francis dashes into the night and flees to the countryside, but when Uncle Lastings reappears, Francis will find himself back in the thick of a deadly game of international espionage.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Mixes venerated clue-chasing techniques with current political dynamite.” Hartford Courant
“In decadent 1920s Paris, the young artist Francis Bacon becomes entangled in love and intrigue. Narrator Paul Ansdell voices the painter with light boyish tones that help to emphasize his youth. This approach to characterization provides an intriguing juxtaposition to the plot, which throws Bacon fully into the adult world of international espionage. The narration is well paced, and Ansdell’s depictions of characters—males and females of diverse nationalities—sound authentic. As the plot thickens, Ansdell ensures that listeners enjoy every twist in this unusual mystery.” AudioFile
