Set across Paris, Amsterdam, and London, Kate Mosse is back for the second novel in The Joubert Family Chronicles, as the family find themselves caught up in the St Bartholomew's Day massacre. August 1572: Minou Joubert and her family are in Paris for a Royal Wedding, an alliance between the Catholic Crown and the Huguenot King of Navarre intended to bring peace to France after a decade of religious wars. So too is their oldest enemy, Vidal, still in pursuit of a relic that will change the course of history. But within days of the marriage, thousands will lie dead in the streets and Minou's beloved family will be scattered to the four winds. A gripping novel of revenge, persecution and loss, following the Sunday Times number-one bestseller, The Burning Chambers. Kate Mosse's The City of Tears is the second historical epic in the series, for fans of Ken Follett and Dan Brown.
