Description: An incendiary tale of vanity, seduction and manipulation

The imperious Marquise de Merteuil and the womanising Vicomte de Valmont are intimate friends and former lovers who form an unholy alliance, using sex as bloodsport and setting out to ruin the lives of others either for sport or revenge. Clever and over-confident, the merciless pair set in motion a series of deceptions which explode with shocking results.

Set amongst the French aristocracy in the late 18th century, just before the French Revolution, it was one of the most scandalous and controversial novels of European literature of the time.

Adult Themes including non-consensual sex
