The Count of Monte Cristo Chapter 99 Summary

The Law

  • Mrs. Danglars begs Villefort to turn a blind eye to Andrea Cavalcanti's offenses.
  • She doesn't want her family disgraced by Andrea's crimes.
  • Villefort refuses to turn a blind eye (remember the two used to be lovers, once upon a time, and Cavalcanti is really the son they once tried to kill when he was just an infant).
  • Mrs. Danglars and Villefort learn that Andrea Cavalcanti has been captured by police in Compiegne.
