Monte Cristo – Book 1


The classic tale of love, revenge and redemption–reimagined and transposed by Prince of Persia creator Jordan Mechner to post-9/11 America and today’s globalized world.
Sam Castillo embodies the blue-collar American dream—promoted to contractor, engaged to his sweetheart Abby at age 24—until three enemies conspire to frame him as a terrorist. Rendered to a black-site prison an ocean away, Sam befriends a brilliant, multi-lingual fellow detainee who educates him in the ways of the world… and bestows on him the key to a secret fortune.
