By: S. Coyne See Source. My second purchase from the author (the holy ghost writer), and even better then the first. This book is perfectly written in the modern time period but it still connects nicely with the original Count of Monte Cristo, as well as the authors prequel The Sultan of Monte Cristo: First Sequel to the Count of Monte Cristo. A wonderfully exciting plot fills the pages with an added unique bonus, the main character is female, but her actions are not always so lady like. Packed with action and adventure this book will have you glued to every page with anticipation. Zaydee's cunning actions and high tech gear make this book just as exciting as a james bond film.
