Book Review: The Dumas Club

The Dumas Club by Arturo Perez-Reverte

Lucas Corso, a somewhat shady bookdealer, is offered a rare handwritten chapter of the Alexander Dumas classic 'The Three Musketeers' and then he's sent on a hunt to find the only two known copies of a 17th century book that allegedly contains a ritual that can summon the devil.

Soon he's been followed by threatening people, he meets two mysterious women and his quest to authenticate the Dumas manuscript and the 17th century book seems to threaten not only his life but his soul.

This is a complicated, creepy puzzle of a tale that comes to a suitably fitting ending.
