This novel is more of a prequel to the affair with the diamond necklace; it is set just before some of the most turbulent times in French monarchy and follows the rather strange individual Joseph who would play a pivotal role in the affair of the necklace. This story features Dumas at his creative best as he masterfully weaves the story with the requisite background for one who would play a key role in the downfall of the French monarchy.
