From the double Man Booker prize-winner comes an extraordinary work of historical imagination - this is Hilary Mantel's epic novel of the French Revolution. Georges-Jacques Danton: zealous, energetic and debt-ridden. Maximilien Robespierre: small, diligent and terrified of violence. And Camille Desmoulins: a genius of rhetoric, charming and handsome, yet also erratic and untrustworthy. As these young men, key figures of the French Revolution, taste the addictive delights of power, the darker side of the period's political ideals is unleashed - and all must face the horror that follows.

  • not for the faint hearted...

    This book is excellent. The skill of her writing makes you feel like you are in the middle of the action. The characters are complex and so real. This book consumed my life completely... a word of warning... it requires commitment to get through. I was the only one in my book club to finish it. It is more intense than Wolf Hall and definitely not one for lovers of popular fiction.
