Summary, etc.:
Ethan Gage, assistant to Ben Franklin and expatriate American in post-Revolutionary France, wins an ancient -- and possibly cursed -- medallion in a card game. Covered in seemingly undecipherable symbols, the medallion seems linked to an ancient Masonic mystery. That night, Ethan is framed for a prostitute's murder and barely escapes France his life. Faced with either prison or death, Gage is offered a third choice -- to accompany the new Emperor, Napoleon Bonaparte, as France sails to conquer Egypt, closely followed by Lord Nelson's British fleet. Incredible surprises await Gage once he arrives, in the form of both a beautiful Macedonian slave and in the dawning knowledge that the medallion may answer one of the greatest riddles of history -- who built the Great Pyramids, and why -- and reveal an answer more shocking and revelatory than anyone could imagine.
