Saturday May 17th at 5:00 PM William Dietrich will give a presentation on the latest in his Ethan Gage series, The Three Emperors. Dietrich is a Harvard educated, Pulitzer Prize winner. His time as a reporter at the Seattle Times (we always enjoyed his columns) left him with a highly honed ability to research, an ability he puts to excellent use in his historic fiction featuring the intrepid Ethan Gage. This swashbuckling adventure series is great fun to read! Ethan is always in the most dire of difficulties, he is very resourceful in his escapes. Dietrich writes interesting stories spiced up with humor and thrills. The history is correct; Ethan is inserted into significant historic events, with entertaining results. Napoleon’s Pyramids starts the series with Napoleon’s ill-fated invasion of Egypt. The Rosetta Stone follows Ethan as he flees into Jerusalem in search of a beautiful woman. Before Lewis & Clark, President Thomas Jefferson sent Egan Gage to scout the west in The Dakota Cypher, our heroe’s ulterior motive is the pursuit of a Norse Legend. From France to Greece to Italy Ethan Gage hunts a valuable artifact while being pursued by dangerous pirates in Barbary Pirates. Emerald Storm has Ethan carting around a stolen emerald with a long line of people willing to hurt him to take possession of the treasure. After a meeting with Napoleon, Ethan is thrown into cahoots with the Brits and sent to rescue Toussaint L’Ouverture from a prison in the French Alps. The action moves to the Caribbean where Ethan and his beautiful wife Astiza are on a treasure hunt for the riches of Montezuma and are drawn into the action during the slave revolt on Haiti. The Barbed Crown by William Dietrich continues the saga. Ethan Gage last saw his beautiful bride being carried out to sea in the grip of a violent wave in a storm. Napoleon is to blame and Ethan is nursing a grudge. He packs his young son off to the care of a couple in America and heads off to France with vengeance in his heart. Ethan’s anger and grief fit in fine with the plans of the spy masters, they want Napoleon assassinated. A canny smuggler outfoxes the French ships, sailing into dangerous waters to deliver Ethan and his fellow spy (naturally a beautiful woman spy). Imagine Ethan’s surprise when he finds his gorgeous, exotic wife alive and accompanied by the son he left in America. Now what is he supposed to do? Kill Napoleon? Dietrich tells a rousing good story, blending action, adventure, and humor with very real incidents of historic significance including the crowning of Napoleon and the Battle of Trafalgar. By inserting Ethan into the happenings of the age, Dietrich brings them to life, making history into a very enjoyable story. We hope you can join us to enjoy this very interesting author presentation! Dietrich will also be leading a book club discussion on Monday May 26th at 6:30 of the second in the Ethan Gage series, The Rosetta Key. The Big Thrill had an interesting interview with Dietrich.
