An Historical Mystery

by Honoré de Balzac

This exciting romance is full of stirring interest and is distinguished by that minute analysis of character in which its eminent author excelled. The characters stand boldly out from the surrounding incidents and with a fidelity as wonderful as it is truthful. Plot and counterplot follow each other with marvellous rapidity, and around the exciting days when Napoleon was First Consul, and afterward when he was Emperor, a mystery is woven in which some royalists are concerned that is concealed with masterly ingenuity until the novelist sees fit to take his reader into his confidence.
