A selection from the "Scenes of Parisian Life" novels of Balzac includes elements of finance, intrigue, the Parisian underworld and the police. As the title suggests the Harlot in the story experiences the vicissitudes of life with her days of wealth and luxury numbered and ultimately offset by misery. But she is merely a pawn in the hands of criminal masterminds at whose apex is Vautrin, the Satanic genius at the heart of the story. He is one of the greatest of Balzac's many memorable characters and ranks among the greats of world literature.
