TONY BOULLEMIER, a former refugee of what was euphemistically known as the Fleet Street mouse race, makes his book-writing debut in Leonie and the Last Napoleon. From the evidence of this historical novel, set in 19th Century France and England, it won't be his last.

TONY BOULLEMIER, a former refugee of what was euphemistically known as the Fleet Street mouse race, makes his book-writing debut in Leonie and the Last Napoleon. The man has a talent that will be difficult to subdue. Unlike so many of his contemporaries who require an inordinately long run-up to introduce their plots and characters, Boullemier sets off at a pace Ussain Bolt would perhaps find beyond his capabilities.

Born in Paris at the height of France's 1848 revolution, Leonie Michel's early life is blighted by illness, drama and tragedy. She is born almost blind; her father is taken to court for practicing as a doctor while unqualified; and her mother dies when she is young. Leonie has to cope with the predatory women who descend on her father and bleed him dry and she is then packed off to a cruel boarding school.

Being a French history buff and anything French Revolution I just loved this book! I always thought the life of Josephine and Napolean was interesting but that of Eugenie and Napoleon 111 might top it!

The final chapter in the story of the last Napoleon is still being written as the French belatedly seek from Britain the return of his mortal remains. To gain a vivid picture of his tumultuous life and times, you can do no better than read this enthralling book.
From boudoir to battlefield, searing passion pulsates through the pages of this family saga. Set against the political turmoil and appalling bloodshed of 19th century Europe, "Leonie" is doubly compelling for being based on the real lives of "ordinary" characters swept along by extraordinary events.

With refreshing directness and pace, Tony Boullemier charts the erratic fortunes of his eponymous forbear - as a young beauty, catching the emperor's predatory eye, as a member of the hated bourgeoisie, fleeing the murderous mob.

The reader is time-warped back to the age of do-or-die cavalrymen and crinolined courtesans, sexual scandal and international intrigue. A well-researched epic peppered with offbeat historical facts, the tale romps along at exhilarating speed. The pages almost turn themselves . . . Geoff Compton.
