THE RETURN OF DANTES
His world had been turned upside down.
In 1815 Edmond Dantes, a young sailor, returned to Marseilles with great expectations.
But Dantes' shipmate Danglars wanted his new captaincy. And a man named Fernand wanted the gorgeous Mercedes, his fianc�.
After Fernand and Danglars wrote a note accusing Edmond of conspiring in a plot to bring the exiled Napoleon Bonaparte back from Elbe. Edmond was arrested on his wedding day and taken before a political turncoat named Villefort.
To cover up his own reputation, Villefort had the accused Edmond Dantes imprisoned in the dungeons of Ch�teau D'If.
But in prison Dantes met and befriended an Italian abb� who educated him and then, in death, helped him escape with a fabulous secret of a treasure on the island of Monte Cristo.
Now, rich and posing as the Count of Monte Cristo, Dantes returns to France --
To seek revenge!
