The Man in the Iron Mask (Penguin Classics)by Alexandre Dumas
Synopses & Reviews
In the Musketeers final adventure, DArtagnan remains in the service of the corrupt King Louis XIV after the Three Musketeers have retired and gone their separate ways. Meanwhile, a mysterious prisoner in an iron mask wastes away deep inside the Bastille. When the destinies of king and prisoner converge, the Three Musketeers and DArtagnan find themselves caught between conflicting loyalties.
The final episode in "The Three Musketeers" saga finds Aramis attempting a royal coup. Philippe, the man in the iron mask, has been a prisoner in the Bastille for 18 years. He is also King Louis' twin brother. Aramis intends to replace Louis with Philippe, in turn imprisoning the King of France.
