Synopsis

The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas is the ultimate novel of retribution.

Part of the Macmillan Collector’s Library, a series of stunning, pocket-sized classics bound in real cloth with gold foiled edges and ribbon markers. These beautiful books make perfect gifts or a treat for any book lover. This abridged edition features an afterword by Marcus Clapham.

Based on true events, the book recounts the story of Edouard Dantes, his betrayal and imprisonment in the sinister Chateau d'If. Years later, Paris is intrigued by the mysterious Count of Monte Cristo, who bursts onto the Paris social scene with his millions. He encounters the three principal betrayers of Dantes who have prospered in the post-Napoleonic boom and, one by one, their lives fall apart. The book was a huge success when it was first serialized in 1844, and remains the greatest tale of revenge.
