The Black Count (Prebound)
October 2012 Indie Next List
“Reiss has written a fast-paced, engaging biography of Alexander Dumas' father. Seemingly ripped from the pages of his son's adventure novels, the mulatto pere de Dumas cuts an amazing figure in France on the cusp of revolution. History, biography, and adventure are woven into this exciting and rewarding read.”
— Shawn Wathen, Chapter One Book Store, Hamilton, MT
