55. These Old Shades–Georgette Heyer

It’s a typical Parisian night as Satan walks down a dark and dirty street. Suddenly an urchin lurches out of an alleyway and plows into him. He thinks he’s a target for a robbery, but instead finds himself grasping a quite remarkable young man.

A plot forms in his head immediately and when the urchin’s pursuer shows up, he buys the urchin.

Thus begins a tale of a rogue who plays the deep game and whose morals are non-existent. Or are they?

I do love a good rogue, and Alastair is definitely that!

Lots of fun and color and intrigue.
