The book is Black Count by Tom Reiss. It is about the father of the author Alexandre Dumas and it turns out he was a very interesting guy and the inspiration for many things in Dumas’ books.
Life in the French capital was complicated for a young mulatto aristocrat, and, as Thomas-Alexandre would shortly discover, he was alone neither in his unlikely fortune nor in the risks that increasingly accompanied it.
