Publisher Description

“A frothy, swashbuckling tale of high adventure….Escapist fiction at its ultimate.”
—Seattle Times

“It has a plot as satisfying as an Indiana Jones film and offers enough historical knowledge to render the reader a fascinating raconteur on the topics of ancient Egypt and Napoleon Bonaparte.”
—USA Today
 
A Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, author William Dietrich introduces readers to the globe-trotting American adventurer Ethan Gage in Napoleon’s Pyramids—an ingenious, swashbuckling yarn whose action-packed pages nearly turn themselves. The first book in Dietrich’s fabulously fun New York Times bestselling series, Napoleon’s Pyramids follows the irrepressible Gage—a brother in spirit to George MacDonald Fraser’s Flashman—as he travels with Napoleon’s expedition across the burning Egyptian desert in an attempt to solve a 6,000 year old riddle with the help of a mysterious medallion. Here is superior adventure fiction in the spirit of Jack London, Robert Lewis Stevenson, and H. Rider Haggard, and fans of their acclaimed successors—James Rollins, David Liss, Steve Berry, Kate Mosse—will certainly want to get to know Ethan Gage.

ABSOLUTELY GRIPPING

One of the best novels I've ever read. I simply could not put it down. It is now 1:30 AM and I've just finished reading it, and I've been reading virtually non-stop since 5:00 this evening. Intriguing, fascinating, thrilling, inspiring... I'm running out of adjectives. GET IT WHILE IT'S FREE.

Mediocre. For a 6th grade audience
Good research and premise

Napoleon's Pyramids

Any narrative that weaves mathematics and history is a challenge to it's writer, the reader and fact checkers. Bravo!!!
