Description


When Edmond Dantès is imprisoned for a crime he didn't commit, he vows to escape and destroy those who betrayed him.

With his former life a distant memory, revenge drives him forward. Using the fortune left to him by Abbé Faria, he transforms himself into the powerful and enigmatic Count of Monte Cristo, and systematically hunts down the men who put him behind bars.

Acting as destiny's agent, Dantès must face not only his enemies, but also the moral dilemmas raised by his ruthless quest for justice. With skill and mercilessness, he manipulates those around him to do his bidding, leaving a trail of social carnage in his wake.

Can the man who once had so much to live for, complete his mission and find peace, or will fate thwart his plan at the very last?
