Description: Henri de Cinq-Mars was a handsome 18 year old when he joined the king's service. Seen by Richelieu as the perfect spy, loved and lusted after by the king and a known rake, Henri's arrogance was his downfall as he aspired to marry a princess and involved himself in a plot with the king's brother to assassinate Louis and Richelieu.

A very good copy, edges slightly faded, in soiled & torn dust jacket.
