A Splendid Hazard (first published in 1910 and made into a feature film in 1920) is the story of the discovery of a document which tells of two million francs buried in Corsica and the subsequent expedition to attempt to recover this sum of money -- money buried there by Napoleon loyalists to help with the return of Napoleon from his banishment. In this lively and fast-paced romantic action adventure, the hero of the story is John (Jack) Fitzgerald, an American correspondent in Paris, drawn into the treasure hunt by the mysterious, beautiful, and very wealthy Laura Killigrew.
