Eldorado is the third book in the many tales of the Scarlet Pimpernel. This time the notorious Pimpernel is in Paris trying to save the uncrownded King of France.

The best Pimpernel story by far. Darker in tone than the rest of the adventures, Eldorado has romance, anguish, tension, a sharp blend of historical fact and fiction, and includes all of Orczy's best characters. For me, the incredible test of Percy and Marguerite's powerful bond is somewhat diminished by the 'subplot' of Armand and actress Jeanne Lange - the suspicion that Orczy was replicating her successful feminine formula of vulnerability and allure, which works so well with Marguerite, rather challenges her supposed appeal - but bar a nauseating chapter in which lovestruck Armand and self-serving Jeanne declare their feelings for each other, the interest stays most firmly rooted in the Blakeneys. The 'Richmond' chapter in The Scarlet Pimpernel is echoed here when Marguerite must visit her beaten but unbowed husband in a fetid cell in the Conciergerie. And although Percy and Armand decide never to tell Marguerite of all that has happened, the reader is left with the feeling that she already knows - and that her relationship with her beloved brother must suffer ever after.Absolutely amazing writing, far surpassing even the main novel.
