"Now you have all the power you could ever want! You must make them pay for every second, every instant you were imprisoned."
Searching for his missing daughter and a woman who may be his lost wife, Crown Prosecutor Gerard de Villefort enters the dark mansion of the mysterious Marquise de Cremieux. What he finds there is a hell beyond imagining. And the master of this hell is the Count of Monte Cristo, who seeks retribution for a crime Villefort and his comrades committed many years ago, when the count was a mortal man named Edmond Dantes.
As this thrilling tale reaches its shattering climax, the origin of the count - and of the strange entity called Gankutsuou - is finally revealed.
