ABOUT THIS BOOK

La Esmeralda, a beautiful dame of mysterious origin, travels from one misadventure to another – abduction, trial, torture, attempted hanging. She finds her long-lost mother only to be snatched away for the gallows. The task of saving her from the hands of the executioner falls on the misshapen, and ugly Quasimode. The plot is set in medieval Paris with the author’s typically imaginative insight.
