The Barbary Pirates (Ethan Gage Series #4) by William Dietrich

“William Dietrich is a born stylist, moving characters around on an historical chessboard with the assured hand of a master novelist firing on all cylinders. Ethan Gage is a wiry, battle-scarred hero, with great decency, who rings absolutely true.”
—Steve Berry, New York Times bestselling author of The Jefferson Key

“William Dietrich...should be read by anyone who loves adventure at its grandest, or humor both smart and sharp, or romance with a wild heart.”
—James Rollins, New York Times bestselling author of The Devil Colony

New York Times bestselling author William Dietrich is back with another rollicking adventure in the popular Ethan Gage series, following Napoleon’s Pyramids, The Rosetta Key, and The Dakota Cypher. From the man Library Journal calls “a leader among historical novelists” comes a grand adventure, featuring a hero as memorable as Indiana Jones or George MacDonald Fraser’s Sir Harry Flashman.

Once again William Dietrich brings us another yarn in the adventures of Ethan Gage. Seamlessly picking up where the Dakota Cipher leaves off, we spin off into a search for the ultimate weapon. Gage once again gets his marching orders from Napoleon as a choice between imprisonment or cooperation in the search. Gage and his companions almost immediately fall prey into a plot run by his old nemesis, the Egyptian Rite. There's plenty of action as usual and I highly recommend this book. It will keep your attention and keep you enjoyably entertained. Dietrich does a great job with this series and I look forward to more from his keyboard.

In 1802 American diplomat Ethan Gage, accompanied by his brilliant insane scientist companions, British rock hound (geologist) William Smith, French zoologist George Cuvier, and American crackpot inventor Robert Fulton, is back in Paris. Napoleon orders the foursome to investigate whether Archimedes' renowned mirror exists or is a fantasy as rumors of the death ray gizmo abound. The quartet begin the quest from Toulon crossing the Mediterranean towards Tripoli, but quickly run into adversarial conditions caused by the brutal Egyptian Rite cabal still planning to dominate the globe with plans to use the fabled death ray on the opposition. Gage is across the Mediterranean where he is joined by Lady Aurora Somerset and Astiza the Egyptian while the Barbary Pirates see his expedition as plunder while Gage and company sail in Fulton's impractical sub to Tripoli with plans to continue to Malta and beyond. The latest Gage swashbuckling pulp fiction is a great over the top of the Tibesti Massif as the hero and three lunatic savants join him on his latest escapades. The story line is fast-paced throughout as Gage never has a chance for a breather. Fans who relish Indiana Jones in Napoleon Era Mediterranean will relish the Barbary pirates adventures as Gage has left America again (see The Dakota Cipher) to cause havoc in Europe and Africa.

Entertaining and Outrageous. Keeps you wanting to see how Gage gets out of the impossible predicaments. How does Astiza continue to get out of harems with her virtue in tact?

This was a very fast paced, action packed with excellent character development story in the Ethan Gage series. The Gage storyline is during the early 18th century and weaves the development of the US with European and Middle East history of the era. Lot's of action with lots of period time writing. This story also introduces Ethan's new family and brings back lots of old friends and enemies.

We find all the Ethan Gage books witty, well-written, and fun. They are page turners without feeling formulaic, and are set against interesting historical backgrounds. I would (and have) read other books by this author, and we are looking forward to #5. I'm not sure that it would have enough meat for book club discussions, though.

As usual, William Dietrich takes the reader on a wild ride. This was loads of fun, well-crafted and the writing style grabs you and carries you through an implausible-yet-believable, delightful romp. It ended too soon!
