Summary
Charles Sanson is the eldest son of Paris's executioner. In the 1760's, his family are outcasts and Charles becomes an executioner so he doesn't starve. For years Charles reluctantly administers the monarchy's merciless justice until the day comes when-- faced with stark injustice-- he cannot reconcile the law's brutal demands with his conscience
