This book is hilarious. Don't hesitate, download it now. You won't regret it!
A young man goes against his father's wishes and marries a girl beneath his station. The girl turns out to be quite a piece of work. Lots of suspense and tension. Highly recommended.
This reminded me of an Alfred Hitchcock episode. It is a bit disturbing, unlike his other works, but I enjoyed it as an audiobook from librivox.
I haven't finished it yet, but I am riveted. The book was told to the author by an ex-courtier from the court of Kaiser Wilhelm before WWI. He cheerfully reveals the scandals and creepy personalities of the royalty and other court followers. Very fun reading.
