The plot of this novel takes place in the early nineteenth century, in the city of New Orleans, during the conflict between Mexico and Texas. At that time, the price of honour was much more important than that of life. The beautiful Celina, a young woman belonging to the city's aristocracy, is about to lose her only brother, Denys, when he challenges the most famous swordsman - Rio de Silva.

As Denys, inexperienced, does not have the slightest chance of winning, his sister resorts to a desperate gesture, going to his opponent, who asks for clemency. But the price Rio asks seems inadequate… 

The famous American writer Jennifer Blake is the author of 52 books, published in 18 languages.
