"Set in the late 1850s in France and Algeria, Brian Moore's stunning new novel blends political intrigue, moral enquiry and the unforgettable portrait of a Lady -- all trademarks of Moore's award-winning fiction. Emmeline Lambert is married to an illusionist sent by Napoleon III to persuade the Arabs -- poised for holy war and in thrall to charismatic leaders -- that France's might and Magic are the greater. Emmeline begins to feel like an illusionist herself, when she dazzles the Emperor and then sheds her inhibitions along with flimsy notions of patriotism and propriety in the hot glare of the Algerian sun." -- front fold over blurb Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
