Henri had a passion for Napoleon, and Napoleon had a passion for chicken. From Boulogne to Moscow Henri butchered for his emperor and never killed a single man.
Meanwhile, in Venice, the city of chance and disguises, Villanelle was born with the webbed feet of her boatman father - but in the casinos she gambled her heart and lost.
As the soldier-chef's love for Napoleon turns to hate, he finds the Venetian beauty, and together they flee to the canals of darkness.

Absolutely loved it! I can't find a story more impressive, touching, mysterious and sentimental than this book. Will continue reading her other books. She is a genius!
The audio performance was great, however I couldn't connect to the female voice. The male voice was so passionate and moving.
