It's January 1815 and the treasure-city of New Orleans lies vulnerable and exposed to greedy, bloodthirsty pirates. Protection comes not by force of arms, but from the crafty mind of an old Spanish monk.
This is a fascinating and fresh approach, one that moves easily between the events of 1815 and Napoleon's death in 1821. The reader will find it a tale well told. - Jack Belsom, Historian and Archivist, The New Orleans Opera Association.
