Ria Jordan Editor. The action begins three years after the denouement of Zenda, and the story features a few recurring characters, such as Rudolf Elphberg, the king of Ruritania, Flavia - his wife, Rudolf Rassendyll - an English gentleman, Fritz von Tarlenheim and, of course, Rupert of Hentzau. Flavia has put aside her own chance at happiness and has married Rudolf V, her cousin. She is absolutely unhappy and can no longer deal with Rassendyll being away.
She writes him a very compromising letter, telling him how she feels.
Fritz von Tarlenheim is in charge of delivering the letter to Rassendyll, but, unfortunately, Rupert of Hentzau steals it. He plans to show it to the king, take advantage of his extreme jealousy and paranoia, and win his favors again. Rassendyll wastes no time in coming to the queen's aid.

Together with his friends Ftitz and Sapt, he returns to Ruritania. Upon arrival, he has to impersonate Rudolf V once more, as Rupert of Hentzau has shot the monarch. Rassendyll finally confronts Rupert and kills him in the end. But one more character had to die before the story ends.
The story brims over with humor and swashbuckling heroism, and has its moments of romance as well. Disguised under all that, the reader will find a sharp satire on Europe's politics of the 19th century.

The book begins: A man who has lived in the world, marking how every act, although in itself perhaps light and insignificant, may become the source of consequences that spread far and wide, and flow for years or centuries, could scarcely feel secure in reckoning that with the death of the Duke of Strelsau and the restoration of King Rudolf to liberty and his throne, there would end, for good and all, the troubles born of Black Michael's daring conspiracy. The stakes had been high, the struggle keen; the edge of passion had been sharpened, and the seeds of enmity sown.
Yet Michael, having struck for the crown, had paid for the blow with his life: should there not then be an end? See other titles by this author available from Kessinger Publishing. Review This Product No reviews yet - be the first to create one!
