MONTE CRISTO'S DAUGHTER.

SEQUEL TO

ALEXANDER DUMAS'

GREAT NOVEL, THE "COUNT OF MONTE CRISTO," AND CONCLUSION OF "EDMOND DANTÈS."

BY

EDMUND FLAGG

"MONTE CRISTO'S DAUGHTER," a wonderfully brilliant, original, exciting and absorbing novel, is the Sequel to "The Count of Monte Cristo," Alexander Dumas' masterwork, and the continuation and conclusion of that great romance, "Edmond Dantès." It possesses rare power, unflagging interest and an intricate plot that for constructive skill and efficient development stands unrivalled. Zuleika, the beautiful daughter of Monte Cristo and Haydée, is the heroine, and her suitor, the Viscount Giovanni Massetti, an ardent, impetuous young Roman, the hero. The latter, through a flirtation with a pretty flower girl, Annunziata Solara, becomes involved in a maze of suspicion that points to him as an abductor and an assassin, causes his separation from Zuleika and converts him into a maniac. The straightening out of these tangled complications constitutes the main theme of the thrilling book. The novel abounds in ardent love scenes and stirring adventures. The Count of Monte Cristo figures largely in it, and numerous Monte Cristo characters are introduced. "MONTE CRISTO'S DAUGHTER" is the latest addition to Petersons' famous series, consisting of "The Count of Monte Cristo," "Edmond Dantès," "The Countess of Monte Cristo," "The Wife of Monte Cristo," and "The Son of Monte Cristo."

CHAPTER I.

MONTE CRISTO AND THE PRIMA DONNA.

The Count of Monte Cristo was in Rome. He had hired one of the numerous private palaces, the Palazzo Costi, situated on a broad thoroughfare near the point where the Ponte St. Angelo connects Rome proper with that transtiberine suburb known as the Leonine City or Trastavere. The impecunious Roman nobility were ever ready to let their palaces to titled foreigners of wealth, and Ali, acting for the Count, had experienced no difficulty in procuring for his master an abode that even a potentate might have envied him. It was a lofty, commodious edifice, built of white marble in antique architectural design, and commanded from its ample balconies a fine view of the Tiber and its western shore, upon which loomed up that vast prison and citadel, the Castle of St...
