Publisher's Summary

Ethan Gage, an expatriate American in post-revolutionary France, wins an ancient medallion in a card game. That same night, Ethan is framed for a prostitute’s murder and barely escapes France with his life. Faced with either prison or death, Gage is offered a third choice: to accompany Napoleon Bonaparte, as France sails to conquer Egypt. Once Gage arrives, he realises that the medallion may solve one of the greatest riddles of history – who built the Great Pyramids, and why. What is revealed to Gage is more shocking than anyone could ever have imagined.

Indiana Jones in the age of Napoleon

Okay book but too many coincidences to make it believable. Napoleons and other historical characters seem to be accurate in personality. Basic mystery, action adventure and bad guys make this a nice easy book to listen too. Should of been edited down a little and needed one or two good twist to make it better.
