THE BARBED CROWN by William Dietrich
"I was smuggled to France on a moonless flood ride, soaked from rain and spattered with the blood of a sailor beheaded by a cannonball."
And so begins another thrilling Ethan Gage adventure, a blend of action and history during the Napoleonic era.
At one time he was a cohort of Napoleon's - fighting beside him and acting as his agent. Now, there is a dramatic change. Gage wants retribution from Napoleon for kidnapping his son, Harry, and almost killing his wife, Astiza.
Nonstop adventure peopled with characters who would make the incredible quite possible - thoroughly entertaining.
