1793-1794. Paris struggles to settle down in the midst of revolutionary violence and the organisation of a new social order. The guillotine on the square is the symbol of the new era, the Reign of Terror, and Robespierre its most representative figure.
Through the eyes of Sébastien, a young newcomer to Paris, this book explores the conspiracies, complexities, passions and hatreds of one of the most turbulent periods in history, while providing in-depth psychological profiles of figures such as Louis Sant-Just, Desmoulins, Marat and, of course, the fascinating and multifaceted Robespierre.
A novel bursting with ideas and seeking moral reparation: to denounce the lie on which the essential values of our civilisation were built. Although it boasts of having achieved liberty, it will be difficult to do the same regarding another fundamental value: equality.
