Montmorency, a man with a curious past and a mysterious alter ego, is back for a third adventure.

It’s a thrilling adventure written on a grand scale which gives a roller-coaster of an emotional ride.

Synopsis

Montmorency and the Assassins by Eleanor Updale

As the nineteenth century nears its end, the threat of war is looming and Montmorency and his companions find themselves embroiled in a web of terrorists intent on spreading mayhem across Europe... But could his alter-ego Scarper re-emerge in the hope of influencing the next generation?

About the Author

Eleanor Updale

Eleanor Updale on Eleanor Updale:
"I grew up in Camberwell in South London, half-way up a hill which had my primary school at the top, and my secondary school at the bottom. I had hardly ever been outside London when I left to go to Oxford University, where I studied history. After that I joined the BBC, working on TV and Radio programmes from 1975 to 1990. By that time I had two children, and soon there was a third. At one point they were all under three and a half years old, so I was very busy. I left my job to look after them, and got involved in all sorts of things I hadn’t had time for when I was working. You might be able to see how some of those things have crept into the books. I’ve been on the Clinical Ethics Committee at Great Ormond Street Hospital for some years now. I found lots of ideas for Doctor Farcett’s character there."
