Gabe Hunt, the globe-trotting treasure hunter and explorer, enlists the aid of Raymond Benson, author of several excellent James Bond novels, to chronicle his latest thrilling adventure. Hunt, for those not in the know, is a fictional character listed as the author of this series of novels, which are written by an assortment of real-life writers. Here, Hunt’s spelunking exploration of Carlsbad Caverns is cut short by a phone call from his brother, Michael; their sister, Lucy, has been kidnapped by a group calling itself the Alliance of the Pharoahs. Their only demand: Hunt must come to Cairo if he wants to keep his sister alive. Turns out the Alliance has a job for him, one that will pit Gabe against a man who’s been dead for a couple of centuries: Napoléon Bonaparte. The Hunt novels are exciting, fast paced, and full of colorful characters and derring-do—modern-day adventure yarns. Each has its own flavor, thanks to each author’s distinctive voice, but that’s part of the fun: when you pick up a Hunt novel, you know you’re getting something fresh each time. --David Pitt
