Greg Rich has just been catapulted back through time.  One moment, his parents were selling their family heirlooms to Michel Dinicouer, a mysterious and suspicious curator at the Louvre in Paris -- and the next thing Greg knows, he's in France in 1615.  His parents have come along, too, only they've been captured by the King's Guard and thrown into La Mort, the world's most dangerous prison.  Now, Greg has to rescue them... but how?By uniting the Three Musketeers.  Greg soon discovers that the three great warriors from Alexander Dumas's classic novel actually exist -- only they're teenagers as well and haven't met yet.  Even stranger, Greg might just turn out to be the fourth Musketeer, D'Artagnan.  Together, the Musketeers need to pull off an impossible, death-defying rescue -- and unravel the devious plot of Dinicouer as well.  Get ready for action, adventure and mystery in this new novel from the acclaimed writer of 'Belly Up.'
