Julius Levy has grown up in a peasant family in a village on the banks of the Seine. A quick-witted urchin caught up in the Franco-Prussian War, he is soon forced by tragedy to escape to Algeria.

Once there, he learns the ease of swindling, the rewards of love affairs, and the value of secrecy. Before he's twenty, he's in London, where his empire-building begins in earnest.

As Julius claws his way to wealth, he cares for no one - until Gabriel is born. The dark passions she inspires in her father will eventually destroy them both ...
