Laura's deft, thrilling, and feminist take on a classic villainess is a perfect tale for our era.

For more than 170 years since the publication of Alexandre Dumas' The Three Musketeers in 1844, Milady de Winter has reigned as one of the great female villains of literature. Cunning, remorseless, and ruthlessly vindictive, Milady moves throughout Dumas' epic novel with such a coldblooded evil that the reader assumes, like the famous fable of the scorpion, it's in her nature. But there is more to Milady's tale. 

For the first time, hear Milady's story in her own words.
