An epic work of action, intrigue, and suspense. The Count of Monte Cristo is the story of Edmond Dantes, the daring young merchant marine officer whose life undergoes a dramatic transformation when he innocently crosses the paths of powerful and unscrupulous men. On the day of his betrothal to the beautiful Mercedes, Dantes is arrested and thrown into prison, falsely accused of having taken part in Napoleon's escape from exile on remote Elba. We are with Dantes in the grim subterranean dungeon where he is imprisoned...we share the excitement of his death-defying escape with his new-found friend, Faria...and we follow him in the strange chain of events that takes him in the mysterious Isle of Monte Cristo. It is here that Dantes discovers a treasure-laden grotto-a source of wealth and power that enables him to plot his revenge against those who nearly destroyed him. This great masterpiece of A. Dumas is a drama of deep human emotions, and a chronicle of implacable hatred and carefully plotted revenge. It is a tale that casts a vast spell, capturing the reader and holding him spellbound to the final unforgettable chapter.
