Swearing to take revenge on those responsible for her husband's death, Angelique plunges into the dangerous underworld of 17th-century Paris. Penniless and alone she plunges into the dangerous underworld of the city to the nightmare Court of Miracles, a world of deformity, degradation, violence and lust.

They dragged her into the light. Desgrez seized her hair with a rough hand and pulled her head back. Angelique closed her eyes. With those smears of mud and blood on her face, he might not recognize her if she closed her eyes. She shook so much that her teeth chattered. The seconds that passed while she was thus exposed to the crude light of the candle seemed to her like centuries. Then Desgrez released her with a disappointed growl.
"No. It isn't she. It isn't the Marquise of the Angels."
The constables swore in unison: "How do you know, sir?" asked one of them.
"I've seen her. She was pointed out to me one day on the Pont-Neuf. This girl looks rather like her but she's not the one."

The carriage turned into the courtyard of the Hôtel de Beautreillis.
Angelique mounted the marble terrace. Every detail of this bright and harmonious residence spoke to her of Joffrey de Peyrac. He had wanted its lines to be as supple as vine tendrils on the wrought-iron balconies and balustrades. He had planned those carved gilt wood friezes framing the smooth high planes of marble or mirror, those statues and busts, those stone animals and birds, ubiquitous as the graceful spirits of a happy home.

In the book was the Hôtel de Beautreillis build by Manzart.
