Publisher's Summary

Originally published in 1845 as a sequel to The Three Musketeers, Twenty Years After is a supreme creation of suspense and heroic adventure.Two decades have passed since the three musketeers triumphed over Cardinal Richelieu and Milady. Time has weakened their resolve and dispersed their loyalties. But treasons and stratagems still cry out for justice: civil war endangers the throne of France, while in England, Cromwell threatens to send Charles I to the scaffold. Dumas brings his immortal quartet out of retirement to cross swords with time, the malevolence of men, and the forces of history. But their greatest test is a titanic struggle with the son of Milady, who wears the face of Evil.

The only reason that it was not all five stars

Was that I wanted to emphasisze my great pleasure in hearing the best narration I have, to yet, ever heard. The accents fitted the characters. How this level of expertise and talent were maintained throughout the story is well worth comment, it added to an already good tale in a terrific read. Thanks, Colin B

After Simon Vance on others this is disappointing

The source book is great if you life Dumas and a necessary third part of the D'Artagnan series of stories. Why Simon Vance has done all the others and not this one is a mystery to me. The narrator on this is just not up to it. Annoying vocal tics (e.g. raising tone at the end of every sentence and inappropriate lilting) make it impossible to listen to after Vance. Comparisons are odious and perhaps if we had not heard the SV recording of "The Three Musketeers" we might have been able to bear it. But sorry Mr Davidson, and I hate criticizing someone who put this much work into something, but this is a very disappointing rendition of great material.
