The Count of Monte Cristo Chapter 42 Summary

Monsieur Bertuccio

  • The Count buys a new house in Auteuil.
  • The house has an interesting history – it was once owned by the Marquis of Saint-Meran, the father of the lady who married Villefort (the district attorney who sentenced the Count to life in prison so many years before).
  • Coincidence?
