(From the publisher):
Alexandre Dumas's Four Musketeers—the noble Athos, the cunning Aramis, the loyal Porthos, and sharp-witted DArtagnan—now add crimesolving to their duties as swashbuckling sleuths in the court of King Louis XIII.
All for one, murder for all
Celebrating a victory with a round of drinks, the four men stumble upon a musketeer, dead from a slash across the throat. What's more, the he is a she who bears a startling resemblance to Anne of Austria, Queen of France. Why would the Queen's double, dressed as a man, be dealt a fatal blow in a dark alley? Not daring to sound the alarm on such a potentially scandalous crime, the Musketeers choose to seek the answer to that question themselves.
With only a cryptic note to go on, Athos, Aramis, Porthos, and D'Artagnan step straight into a trap already marked with titled blood as they unravel what appears to be a shocking conspiracy—a conspiracy rooted in the dark past of one of the four.
