Publisher's Summary

Surviving murderous thieves, a nerve-racking sea voyage, and the deadly sands of Egypt with Napoleon's army, American adventurer Ethan Gage solved a 5,000-year-old riddle with the help of a mysterious medallion. But the danger is only beginning. Gage finds himself hurled into the Holy Land in dogged pursuit of an ancient Egyptian scroll imbued with magic, even as Bonaparte launches his 1799 invasion of Israel, which will climax at the epic siege of Acre. Pursuing Napoleon to France, where the general hopes ancient secrets will catapult him to power, the wily and inventive Gage faces old enemies with unlikely new friends, and must use wit, humor, derring-do, and an archaeological key to prevent dark powers from seizing control of the world.
Entertaining and vividly evocative, The Rosetta Key is William Dietrich at his fast-paced, cliff-hanger best. For lovers of stirring historical adventure laden with intriguing mystery and puzzles galore, The Rosetta Key is a terrific thrill ride not to be missed.

A Good Book

This is a good story. It is not a great story. It is not something that I left thinking, "WOW I'm glad I read that". It is although entertaining and keeps you interested. The characters are shallow, Except Gage, and the story line is adequate. It makes you wnat to find out what's next, but it never enthrals you.

I will read whatever he writes next though. I love books, and the author is good enough for me to purchase his wares.

continuation

Don't listen to this unless you've READ the first book NAPOLEAN'S PYRAMIDS (unavailable in Audible)because this is a continuation of that book. It is a good adventure and does give some details of what happened previously but first things first! The other problem I had is that the reader doesn't sound anything like the character.
