The Knave of Trumps: The Life and Times of Count James Louis Rice – Book Launch
In 1792 a small band of Irish émigrés, led by Count James Louis Rice, launched one of the most daring rescue plans in history – to free Queen Marie Antoinette from the Temple prison in Paris and bring her to safety in Dingle, Co. Kerry. The Knave of Trumps explores the facts behind the rescue attempt.
“Thoroughly researched, written with great panache and clarity, it unfolds the many layers of a fascinating life with aplomb” – Diarmaid Ferriter
