DUMAS, A.: Man in the Iron Mask (The) (Unabridged)

The Man in the Iron Mask continues the adventures of the dauntless heroes of The Three Musketeers—Aramis, Athos, Porthos and d’Artagnan. In old age their swashbuckling ought to have been replaced by a more gentle way of life, but the veteran warriors find themselves at the centre of a plot in which both hearts and heads are broken, and the very throne of France is at stake.
