Rogue's Life by Wilkie Collins is a captivating tale of adventure and intrigue set in 19th century Europe. The story follows the life of Frank Softly, a charming and cunning rogue who navigates through various social circles by using his wit and cunning nature.

The novel is filled with twists and turns, as Frank finds himself entangled in a web of deception and betrayal. The character development is well-crafted, with Frank evolving from a carefree hustler to a more introspective and morally conflicted individual.

Collins does an excellent job of setting the scene, with vivid descriptions of the bustling streets of London and the opulent salons of Paris. The dialogue is sharp and engaging, drawing the reader into Frank's world of secrets and scandals.

Overall, Rogue's Life is a thrilling and entertaining read that will keep readers on the edge of their seats until the very end. Collins' masterful storytelling and vivid characters make this novel a must-read for fans of historical fiction and mystery genres.

Book Description:
"[T]he story offers the faithful reflection of a very happy time in my past life. It was written at Paris, when I had Charles Dickens for a near neighbor and a daily companion, and when my leisure hours were joyously passed with many other friends, all associated with literature and art, of whom the admirable comedian, Regnier, is now the only survivor. The revising of these pages has been to me a melancholy task. I can only hope that they may cheer the sad moments of others. The Rogue may surely claim two merits, at least, in the eyes of the new generation—he is never serious for two moments together; and he "doesn't take long to read." W. C."
