Description

In the fifth installment of master storyteller William Dietrich's bestselling adventure series, the swashbuckling, battle-scarred hero Ethan Gage must race from the slopes of the Alps to the sultry tropics of the Caribbean to pursue a mysterious Spanish treasure as the fate of England--and of the world's first successful slave revolt--hang desperately in the balance.

The Emerald Storm is the action-packed historical masterpiece that Ethan Gage fans have long awaited. Fans of the Indiana Jones adventures, the Sharpe's Rifles series, and the thrilling works of James Rollins, who himself calls Dietrich's writing "adventure at its grandest," will find The Emerald Storm a satisfying, sword-in-hand romp through history--and new readers will discover it as the perfect introduction to the breathtaking Ethan Gage Adventures.
