Professional reviews

"In this delightful book American adventurer Ethan Gage looks for archaeological treasure in the time of Napoleon. Using historical figures and events, like the famed Rosetta Stone, author and historian Dietrich has created a swashbuckling saga. Because the book is written as a journal, Gage gets to have fun recounting his adventures. He plays down the danger and death and injects wit and wisdom throughout. If you enjoy Indiana Jones, you'll love this book. And you'll love the way Jeff Woodman performs it--with just the right touch of humor and irony. But he never lets the listener forget the danger that lurks around every corner. And he does a mean Napoleon. M.S. (c) AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine"
