A classic tale of secret identities and swashbuckling vengeance stretching across decades, The Hunchback has thrilled readers since it first came out in 1857. Dashing young swordsman Henri de Lagardère vows justice for the treacherous murder of his friend, the Duke of Nevers, but first he has to raise Nevers’s beautiful daughter Aurore as his own child –– and protect her from the same powerful villains who killed her father.
Regency Paris in the early 1700s is a time of debauched courtesans and dueling swordsmen. And among those, no one is more feared than the outlaw Lagardère, who alone knows the secret of the Nevers attack –– a fencing move that kills by striking right between the eyes!
Paul Féval’s swashbuckling classic is as well-known and beloved in France as Dumas’s Three Musketeers and has been adapted more than a dozen times for cinema and television. This is the first time it is presented in English in a complete and unabridged translation.
