A rousing literary mystery, translated from the Spanish, in which "book detective" Lucas Corso is drawn into a fantastical plot involving the murder of a noted bibliophile, the original manuscript of "The Three Musketeers," occult practices, and swashbuckling. It gets a little too tangled by the end, but it's an enjoyable ride most of the way. (And the last line is priceless.)

"Perez-Reverte has written a book with more twists and convolutions than a Chinese puzzle, which races along like a runaway freight train, but never careens out of control. For all the twist and turns, it knows where it's going, and carries the reader right along to the final page. For mystery fans and bibliophiles alike, it's a helluva joyride." amazon review

What is the connection between "The Three Musketeers" and a demonic book that got the printer burned alive in 1666?

I couldn't figure out what one book had to do with other. Read "The Club Dumas" and then you'll know. It's an entertaining read.
