The Blade of the guillotine falls on the neck of the king himself, and the spirit of the French Revolution lies in tatters. The mysterious young man, Yann Margoza, is helping desperate people to escape to England, where Sido, the girl he loves, waits to hear from him. But Yann’s past haunts him. He is in grave danger and so is Sido. For under the streets of Paris, in the catacombs, the howl of a great beast can be heard.
