Lucas Corso, middle-aged, tired, and cynical, is a book detective, a mercenary hired to hunt down rare editions for wealthy and unscrupulous clients. When a well-known bibliophile is found hanged, leaving behind part of the of the original manuscript of Alexandre Dumas' The Three Musketeers, Corso is brought in to authenticate the fragment.

Soon the unsuspecting Corso is drawn into a swirling plot involving devil worship, occult practices, and swashbuckling derring-do among a cast of characters bearing a suspicious resemblance to those of Dumas' masterpiece. Download and start listening now!

    " Amazing! A magnificent work of art, the story reads like a favorite fantasy savored before a fireplace in a comfortable armchair, it stimulates as if a fusion of an ancient tome and a current thriller, and it tastes like a fine wine. I loved the movie version, the Ninth Gate, as well although the story line is modified a bit. Congratulations to Mr. Perez-Reverte on this achievement--a remarkable novel. "

    " I have mixed feelings about this book. Really I'd give it a 2.5, parts of it I really liked and I occasionally had trouble putting it down. Overall though, it was a little lacking for me in some areas. "

    " The more I read by this author, the more I like him. This book, patterned after serial novels, especially after The Three Musketeers, is full of intellectual twists and turns a la Jorge Luis Borges or Umberto Eco. Like both of those authors, the written word and the world of books is a main character in the story. Even the most jaded reader cannot predict the ending. A wonderful read from beginning to end! "

    " Concept was good, characters were intriguing, story felt as though it never quite picked up...and I still don't know if I know what the hell happened at the end. "

    " OMG Becky. This book is horrid. Don't waste your time with it. "

    " Had more depth than the film but I didn't like the subplot too much, but he creates a mysterious phantom world of danger. "

    " Good book but also liked the film remake 'The Ninth Gate' the book is like the film for the first 1/2 - 3/4... then it isn't... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kara Rae Garland | 7/30/2012

    " Considering that I absolutely adore The Ninth Gate, it is funny that I'm only reading the book now. It is highly conversational, thought-provoking and amusing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rene | 1/8/2012

    " This is a book-lovers book. (I admit, I'm a sucker for anybody who talks about incunabula.) Even if the plot climax is a bit of a let-down, I loved all the old book lore and references to early print history in this book. It made me want to read The Three Musketeers. "

    " I'm sure I would have followed it better if I had read The Three Musketeers first, but I still liked it. "

    " I saw the movie first, so the book was a bit dull. "
