The Man who Killed the King

Jun 1792 – Aug 1794The Man who Killed the King tells the story of Roger Brook–Prime Minister Pitt's most resourceful secret agent–during the Great Terror when more than a million people perished and the Terrorists found that the guillotine did not work quickly enough. This, the second phase of the French Revolution, opened with the storming of the Tuileries in June, 1792, and in the months that followed, the Liberals were mown down by cannon fire, drowned by the thousand, and flung back into the flames of villages burnt to the ground.And amidst all this brutality and bloodshed, Roger Brook, a Commissar in Revolutionary Paris, faced terrifying hazards trying desperately to rescue Queen Marie Antoinette and other members of the Royal Family from a mob thirsting for revenge.
