    Father of the novelist Alexandre Dumas, Alex Dumas has become, through his son's books, the model for a captivating modern protagonist: The wronged man in search of justice. Born to a black slave mother and a fugitive white French nobleman in Saint-Domingue (present-day Haiti), Alex Dumas was briefly sold into bondage but then made his way to Paris where he was schooled as a sword-fighting member of the French aristocracy. He was only 32 when he was given command of 53,000 men, the reward for series of triumphs that many regarded as impossible, and then topped his previous feats by leading a raid up a frozen cliff face....

    Where does The Black Count rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is one of the best historical audiobooks in my library. Really drew me in to the real-life details of the French revolutionary period and the début of Napoleon Bonaparte as well as the start of the Dumas family fame. Different in perspective from Dickens' Tale of Two Cities and from Dumas' Count of Monte Cristo, The Black Count speaks of the political and military roles in the revolution.

    Twenty years ago, four teenagers at summer camp walked into the woods at night. Two were found murdered, and the others were never seen again. Four families had their lives changed forever. Now, two decades later, they are about to change again.

    Story

    My first discovery of Harlen Coben. Stands out from many mystery writers, and I have read hundreds. I will definitely look for more work from this author. Even the parts I thought were predictable turned out to have great twists. And it all tied together logically.
