Book description

Zorro behind the mask is a daring defender of freedom and justice, wielding sword and whip with unparalleled skill in defense of the common people's cause.

Zorro without the mask is Don Alejandro de la Vega, wealthy landowner and as much of a family man as his charge will allow.

As California stands on the brink of statehood, Alejandro is not sure who he will be when the need for the mask fades, but his lovely wife, Elena, is certain he will be the devoted husband and father she and their son, Joaquin, have patiently waited for.

But ruthless men in a deadly conspiracy of power have different ideas. As they threaten the future of a still-young nation, they also set Alejandro's two lives in collision, drawing his beloved Elena into a perilous world of shadows and lies. Could the mask ultimately cost the one they call Zorro everything and everyone he holds most dear?

Or will the Zorro legacy and de la Vega family prevail?
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0060833041, Mass Market Paperback)

In the early 19th century Don Diego de la Vega championed the people of Mexico against the tyranny of Spanish rule as the masked swordsman and hero Zorro. Twenty years later an orphan named Alejandro, whom Don Diego trained as a boy, becomes Don Diego's successor, serving up a similar brand of freedom and justice in California, reuniting Don Diego with his long lost daughter Elena and marrying the beautiful young woman. At last, in this riveting monetisation of the latest Zorro film from Sony Pictures and Zorro Productions Inc., the mantel is about to be passed again! Alejandro and Elena's marriage is suffering from the strain of Alejandro's work. They're on the very brink of divorce when Elena finds herself central to a Pinkerton sting operation that threatens to expose Zorro's true identity and risk Alejandro's life as well as place Elena's former beau, a French Count and suspected arms dealer, behind bars. It isn't long before seeking justice becomes a family affair, involving Elena, Alejandro and their beloved son Joaquin. Could this adventure possibly lead to reconciliation between the two lovers and to the succession, yet again, of the sword? This adaptation of the forthcoming film "The Legend Of Zorro" completes the circle of history established by Isabel Allende's new book exploring the birth, life and times of bon vivant Don Diego, the first generation Zorro, and by the 1998 blockbuster film "Mask Of Zorro" which recounted the assumption of the mask by the equally dashing and principled second generation Zorro, Alejandro with the introduction of a possible third generation Zorro.
