Count of Monte Cristo (Penguin Clothbound Classics)
Brief Description: Thrown in prison for a crime he has not committed, Edmond Dantes is confined to the grim fortress of the Chaateau d'If. There he learns of a great hoard of treasure hidden on the Isle of Monte Cristo and becomes determined not only to escape but to unearth the treasure and use it to plot the destruction of the three men responsible for his incarceration. A huge popular success when it was first serialized in the 1840s, Dumas was inspired by a real-life case of wrongful imprisonment when writing his epic tale of suffering and retribution.
