Review

[Fry] has once again proven that he is an entertainer of the very first rank. Michiko Kakutani, "The New York Times"
It s an old story...but Fry...has the wit and erudition to make it run like a well-made pocket watch. Be warned: the vengeance promised by the title has an unabashedly nasty flavor that s distinctly British and quite refreshing. "Newsweek"
In his first attempt at thriller writing, British actor-novelist Stephen Fry doesn t stumble at all....Revenge is sweet. "People"
A brisk thriller...smooth, clever, bittersweet, and dramatically entertaining. "The Seattle Times""

From the Inside Flap

This brilliant recasting of the classic story The Count of Monte Cristo centers on Ned Maddstone, a happy, charismatic, Oxford-bound seventeen-year-old whose rosy future is virtually pre-ordained. Handsome, confident, and talented, newly in love with bright, beautiful Portia, his father an influential MP, Ned leads a charmed life. But privilege makes him an easy target for envy, and in the course of one day Ned's destiny is forever altered. A promise made to a dying teacher combined with a prank devised by a jealous classmate mutates bewilderingly into a case of mistaken arrest and incarceration. Ned finds himself a political prisoner in a nightmarish exile that lasts years, until a fellow inmate reawakens Ned's intellect and resurrects his will to live. The chilling consequences of Ned's recovery are felt worldwide.
