Napoleon's Pyramids 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.
