Locked within the dreaded Bastille prison may be his enemies' ultimate weapon: an anonymous prisoner forced to wear an iron mask so that none may see his face--and learn his astonishing secret. But soon the famed d'Artagnan and the Three Musketeers are swept into the action--but not on the same side! Will they actually be forced to fight each other?&&L/P&&R&&LP style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt"&&R &&L/P&&R&&LP style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt"&&RAs much a tale of mystery and political intrigue as a swashbuckling adventure, &&LI&&RThe Man in the Iron Mask&&L/I&&R is the final novel in &&LSTRONG&&RAlexandre Dumas&&L/B&&R's series of d'Artagnan romances. The story follows the heroic young man from the country who, along with his three comrades, becomes a powerful influence on the course of French history. Yet what seems to be the most fantastic aspect of the story is based on fact. During Louis XIV's reign, a mysterious masked prisoner did dwell in the Bastille and his identity remains a question to this day.&&L/P&&R&&LP style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt"&&R &&L/P&&R&&LP style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt"&&R&&LSTRONG&&RBarbara T.
