During the German-Russian occupation of Paris in 1814, a Prussian lieutenant, Hugo von Löwenklau, comes to the rescue of a young Parisian woman, Margot. Soon after, he becomes entangled with her calculating and opportunistic stepbrother, Captain Albin Richemonte. Richemonte is determined to marry her off to a rich baron, all in an effort to extricate himself from his own mounting gambling debts. In the face of Margot's blossoming romance, the baron and captain aren't about to let Löwenklau whisk the young mademoiselle away. Stopping at nothing to rid themselves of the young officer, even murder, they concoct a daring plot which puts Löwenklau into contention with the famous French Emperor, Napoleon Bonaparte. Faced on one side with the relentless captain's schemes and a spurned emperor on another, Löwenklau finds himself in the fight of his life--to keep Margot out of the clutches of these two villains. Overwhelmed and outnumbered, Hugo struggles to stay ahead of them while maintaining honor and integrity.

Author: Robert Stermscheg

Robert Stermscheg, born in Europe in 1956, was exposed to many wonderful writers – Edgar Rice Burroughs, Alexandre Dumas, and of course Karl May. He appreciated how they opened up a whole new world to our imaginations through their portrayal of life. His parents were of Austrian descent, and as a result of his father’s occupation as an electrical engineer, he moved several times in his early childhood. His father kept a steady supply of books to broaden his son’s education, including a repertoire of Karl May books.

The entire family moved to Canada in 1967, eventually settling in Manitoba. Robert was involved in chess, hockey, flying, but always kept up his interest in the German language. His passion to share the works of Karl May, largely unknown in North America, resulted in the search for English translations. After retiring from a satisfying career with the Winnipeg Police Service in 2006, he had the opportunity to pursue his dream—translating one of Karl May’s novels into English. His wife, Toni, embraced his dream and encouraged him in the writing process. She supported him in this new venture by being a proof reader.

In 2006, Robert and embarked on his first book, The Prussian Lieutenant, based on an earlier work by Karl May. His first book was well received, encouraging him to continue with the sequel, The Marabout’s Secret. Buried Secrets, the third book, shifts back to France. There is much tension, as the ruling authority prepares for a war with its neighbour, Germany.
Robert resides in Winnipeg and is currently working on his fourth book, Captain Richemonte.
