Thirty-five years after the events of The Three Musketeers, D’Artagnan, Athos, Porthos, and Aramis find themselves caught between conflicting loyalties in a power struggle that could change the face of the French monarchy. For eight long years, a young prisoner has languished within the dreaded Bastille, his face hidden in an iron mask. He knows neither his true identity nor the crime for which he has been imprisoned. But Aramis knows this secret—a secret so dangerous, it could topple the King from his throne. Will his cause divide the once indivisible band of musketeers? A tale of mystery, adventure, and political intrigue, this conclusion to Dumas’s swashbuckling musketeer saga is based on the true story of a masked prisoner who dwelled in the Bastille during Louis XIV’s reign and whose identity remains in question to this day.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“No part of the world has ever seemed to me so charming as these pages, and not even my friends are quite so real, perhaps quite so dear, as d’Artagnan.” Robert Louis Stevenson
“The name Alexandre Dumas is more than French—it is universal.” Victor Hugo
“Only he had the imaginative involvement, the compulsion, and the intuititon to create characters and situations which, even in our own cynical times, have yet to lose their appeal and which in his own day, made him not only France’s bestselling author but the most famous living Frenchman in the world.” David Coward, editor
“Historical characters mix believably with fictional ones rendered with zeal by narrator Simon Vance.” SoundCommentary.com
