    When Napoleon Bonaparte died in exile in 1821, he took to the grave a powerful secret. As general and emperor, he had stolen immeasurable riches from palaces, national treasuries, and even the Knights of Malta and the Vatican. In his final days, his British captors hoped to learn where the loot lay hidden. But he told them nothing, and in his will he made no mention of the treasure. Or did he?

    Paul says: "Excellent novel"
    "Almost ruined by bad narration"
    Overall

    I went in optimistic despite the bad reviews for the narrator -- from past experience this can be polarizing. Unfortunately they were right -- I have had to start the book twice in order to even come close to following it; the narrator is just so distracting, it's almost funny. He sounds like he thinks he's auditioning for a Shakespeare play with EVERY line, no matter how innocuous. Wildly over dramatic. I trust if I read the book it would be up to expectations from Steve Berry, but impossible to know for sure with this narrator. I encourage the publisher to re-record this book!

    Tory Brennan, niece of acclaimed forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan (of the Bones novels and hit TV show), is the leader of a ragtag band of teenage "sci-philes" who live on a secluded island off the coast of South Carolina. When the group rescues a dog caged for medical testing on a nearby island, they are exposed to an experimental strain of canine parvovirus that changes their lives forever.

    Beverly says: "Kathy Reichs Does it Again!"
    "I hope she writes another in this series soon!"
    Overall

    I've read all of Kathy's work and love her characters and intelligent attention to detail. Although perhaps written for young adults/teens, this was a great listen...more interesting characters and story lines. I'm having a hard time turning this one one off! Kathy, more in this series soon, please!!
