A truly intense story filled with life's mishaps, grand delusions, love, murder even madness. A story filled with curious and madcap characters, that gives the book its deep intensity. The storyline is absolutely a delightful one, along with its madcap characters, ah the ever so titillating growing attraction between the prickly Miss Benda and Lord Edward.
Outside of being an intense and captivating story, it’s also very enticing and beautiful. Imagine the Vicomte acting all demented and sometimes very irrational, to think he suddenly returns to his collective self when the treasure was found, rather selective of him, I think, he pulled the wool over their heads just to get their corporation in searching for the treasure, but no matter he gave the book character. I have to admit this has been a most interesting, intense and captivating read, I enjoyed it.
