Loved the humour of this book, very different to the Count of Monte Cristo. At times hilarious with the adventures D'Artagnan contrasted with the sinister behaviour of the protagonist and sad demise of several characters. Ripping good read.

Slow to start but nail biting conclusion. Loved the narrative by Bill Homewood, best I've heard so far! His use of different voices made me forget I was listening to one person.
