"Swashbuckling American explorer and ladies' man Ethan Gage has seen his fair share of danger, having braved the sands of Egypt, the perils of the Atlantic Ocean, and the harsh wilderness of early America. Once more, he finds himself in a desperate race--this time with the Barbary Pirates, a powerful band of Muslim outlaws from North Africa. Also after Ethan is his nemesis--and former lover--Aurora Somerset, member of a dangerous sect called the Egyptian Rite. The prize is the Mirror of Archimedes, an ancient superweapon that, according to legend, once burned a Roman fleet with its power. In 1802, this death ray could tip the balance of power in the Mediterranean, and Ethan must stop the pirates from using it against the American, English, and French fleets"--Cover, p. 2.

The Barbary Pirates --- by William Dietrich. Our hero is swashbuckling Ethan Gale. In this mission he is accompanied by Robert Fulton who is later to go on and invent the steamboat. The setting is along the north shore of Africa. The time is during the early nineteenth century. The mission is to find the terrible weapon Archimedes invented and to keep it from falling into enemy hands. This novel is elegant streaked with whimsy. There's lots action, suspense and adventure. There are ogres, dungeons, dragons, villains, janissaries, and jewels making the book difficult to put down. It leaves you hankering for more.
