It was Napoleon Bonaparte's most prized possession, the key to his vast global conquests and military victories. For nearly two centuries, it has remained hidden. But now one nation will stop at nothing to locate it. And Lang Reilly may be the only man who stands in their way - unless they can eliminate him. From Venice to Port-au-Prince, Alexandria to Paris, Lang will need to stay one step ahead of the assassins.

I have listened to all the Lang Reilly books up to this one. So far, I think this one has been the best. The story is fast paced and it advances the characters well. Mr Reilly gets himself into all sorts of situations without trying and wiggles out of them with a good sense of humor and a lot of ingenuity. You can easily lose yourself for a few hours in this one.
Love this story! It takes awhile to build at the start, but then BAM, it's hard to stop listening. Travel the globe with this story and come to appreciate the distinct characters woven into this mystery. I enjoy the writing of Mr. Loomis. Masterful descriptions so beautifully told. The narration is equally amazing...any accent, age or gender done to perfection. Timing is spot on. I am on to the second book and it only gets more exciting. Highly recommend this book!
