Weird side effect of reading _The Black Opera_

I'm wondering about major fiction (major either by respect or popularity) written in English that's set in France? Offhand, the only thing I can think of is A Tale of Two Cities.

The Black Opera is by Mary Gentle, and I'm liking it pretty well, and if you like plots with heightened emotion and sudden revelations, not to mention opera and fear of volcanoes, you might like it, too. Among other things, it's an alternate history where Napoleon didn't lose at Waterloo, which got me to thinking about France and English language literature.
