Blurb:  "A tale of adventure in Buda Pest in the days before the Red Terror was forced to give way to the White. The necessities of a king demand high risk, as the girl realized with every jolt of the car through the rain-scourged night. But Denise Vay, daughter of a line whose loyalty was its life, hurried on--to a sudden stop and a danger worse than death. For in the misty glow of a lanter, the toast for loveliness of all Hungary, shrank from the gaze of a creature toadlike in his venomous stealth, ashen-faced with the deformity of his spirit. It is the first score in the reckoning between the girl and a man who had once suffered her imperious scorn and that reckoning calls Andrew Brull, American, to the service of the lady he loves, turning the tide of revolution for those who ride to their doom.".
