9780141035833: Rupert of Hentzau (Penguin Classics)

Rudolf Rassendyll, having heroically saved the kingdom of Ruritania and nobly given up the hand of the beautiful Princess Flavia, has returned to his normal life in England. But when, three years later, Flavia, now the unhappily married Queen of Ruritania, sends him a love letter, it is stolen by the exiled villain Rupert Hentzau. Rudolf’s former adversary has been waiting for the chance to have his revenge, and this provides the perfect opportunity to stir up trouble.

Rudolf must return to the troubled kingdom to defeat Hentzau, where he is embroiled once more in a world of deception, intrigue, deadly swordfights and torn loyalties. With the stakes higher than ever, will he pay the ultimate price?

Review:

Rufus Wright's reading of the sequel, Rupert of Hentzau, centres on the villain of the earlier piece. Interestingly darker than Zenda, it draws a more complex picture of Rudolf and Rupert and raises ambiguous moral issues. Great escapist listening. --Christina Hardyment, The Times

Hope's first novel, The Prisoner of Zenda, set in his fictitious kingdom of Ruritania, was a Victorian bestseller. This equally exciting sequel presses all the topical royal romance buttons. Give it to Granny. --Sue Arnold, The Guardian

About the Author:

Anthony Hope (pseudonym of Anthony Hope Hawkins) was born in London in 1863. While practicing law, Hope also experimented with creative writing, and he published his first novel, a political satire entitled A Man of Mark, at his own expense in 1890. With the publication of his most famous novel, The Prisoner of Zenda, in 1894, Hope abandoned his legal career to write full-time, penning the short story collection, The Heart of Princess Osra (1896), and the Zenda sequel, Rupert of Hentzau (1898). He died on July 8, 1933.
