“Guy Falks was a man fired by ambition and revenge, revenge for a father who had been denied his birthright and a mother, a hill-slattern, too lowly to have one. He was an imposter, who makes a tainted fortune and becomes a great aristocrat in the pre-Civil War South. A man whose passionate destiny took him from a humble shack to an aristocratic Southern plantation and on to the most glittering salons of Europe - a man driven by hungers he could not control to a ruthless quest for power that had no bounds and was beyond all limits.
He was the man all men want to be like, and all women want to love. His climb to the power he passionately desired was marked by the ruthless destruction of every man who stood in his way. Beautiful women were necessities to him, there were none who could long resist his virile strength, and he used them. His adventures spanning from an aristocratic southern plantation to the slave markets of Africa, Guy Falks is a man who can never chain his own fierce hungers.”
