The year is 1803. Swashbuckling, ribald, and irreverent hero Ethan Gage has outsmarted wily enemies and survived dangerous challenges across the globe. Now the rakish hero finds himself in the Caribbean with his wife, Astiza, on a desperate hunt to secure the lost treasure of Montezuma - a legendary hoard rumored to have been hidden from Cortes's plundering Spanish conquistadors. Hot on his heels are British agents who want the gold to finance a black slave revolt in Saint-Domingue, robbing hostile France of its richest colony. The French, too, seek the treasure for the secrets it contains, the key to an incredible new means of invasion that can ensure Britain's defeat - on its own land.

"Nineteenth-century swashbuckler Ethan Gage, now married with a child, finds himself neck-deep in danger in the Caribbean as he searches for Montezuma's treasure. Performed with gusto and good-natured insouciance by John Pruden, characters are exactly right: larger than life and sizzling with passion. But for all his bawdy behavior and lustful longings, Gage is a technological conservative. Pruden makes Gage's scorn palpable whenever a new invention is mentioned. (He dismisses air travel as improbable--even after a hair-raising escape in a glider.) Gage switches allegiances as needed, alternately working for British agents, French criminals, and greedy Americans, AND assisting a black slave revolt. Pruden's stellar performance and Gage's offhand references to previous spine-tingling escapades will have new fans scrambling to find the earlier books in the series. S.J.H.
