If he stayed he would die. If he deserted he might survive.Two hundred years later John Beaton was having a really bad day- then it got worse.He didnt want to be at an airport picking up his soon-to-be-ex-wife, and he didnt bargain for an encounter in a parking garage when he almost got killed. It was the sort of day he wanted to forget, and he thought he had, but on the day of his retirement a chance meeting forced him to realize he had more work to do before he could put the airport encounter to rest. He starts to find out what happened at the airport and the closer he looks the more he finds out about himself and the path he is reaching for.His enquiries take him to a nursing home in the Pacific Northwest, where he finds out what happened to Philippe dAnvers, to the ski slopes of Bulgaria and the countryside of Belarus where he unravels the story of captured Napoleonic gold. His task is made harder by the long memories of the modern day relatives of those who were not happy with the outcome of Philippes actions two hundred years ago.
