Like many of Dunas' novels, "The Count of Monte Cristo" is expanded from plot outlines by his collaborating ghostwriter Auguste Maquet. A man gets wrongfully imprisoned, escapes from jail, acquires a fortune, and sets about getting revenge on those responsible for his imprisonment. However, his plans have devastating consequences for the innocent as well as the guilty. The story takes place in France, Italy, and islands in the Mediterranean during the historical events of 1815 - 1839: the era of the Bourbon Restoration through the reign of Louis-Philippe of France. It begins just before the Hundrred Days period (when Napoleon returned to power after his exile).
