While pondering his fate in the lobby of Tess' Paris apartment building, Robert hears a cry for help. He opens a door to find his friend Oscar Quesana being attacked for a package he is grasping. Robert grabs the package, the thief runs off and Oscar explains his situation. The package contains a rare first edition of the English translation of Victor Hugo’s Les Misérables. It is signed by Hugo to Charles Dickens and worth a fortune.
The plot takes off from there with lots of intrigue, a kidnapping and some surprises. I loved that it was told from three viewpoints. While that got a bit confusing at times, it is always fun to read things from different perspectives. Some of the characters seemed a bit more clearly defined than others, but there was someone for everyone to relate to in this latest offering from author Rosenberg.
