At stake are $5 billion in gold and the fate of the modern world. Think of it as Captain Kirk meets Captain Jack Aubrey: a moral tale, light-hearted and filled with action, yet rich in authentic historical and nautical detail. Napoleons Gambit is set in exotic locations aboard the worlds most advanced yacht and on old wooden warships. Its love-story, sword-fights, sea-battles, pirates and storms at sea add tension to an unpredictable and satisfying plot.
