His return is both highly doubted and eagerly anticipated by the River Rat Reporters, a motley yet intriguing group of his fathers former colleagues, summer neighbors, family members and drinking buddies. Together, along with Toms former love and fellow historian Mindy McDonnell, the group seeks to complete his fathers personal quest: the location of Napoleons gold, one of the great legends of the Thousand Islands.

But others also seek the gold for their own personal gain, and wage a battle against the group to control its reputed power. Through their personal tales of their involvement with his fathers research, the River Rat Reporters each bring Tom one more piece of the puzzle to unlocking both the mystery of Napoleons gold and the accidental deaths of his family.

Once again, Thomas Pullyblank has delivered a tale full of history, wonder and spiritual healing that illustrates how our lives are intricately intertwined and elaborately decorated with poignant moments of intimacy, betrayal, collaboration and revelation. Based on both Napoleonic history and the history of upstate New York, Napoleons Gold continues the story of Tom Flanagan, first begun in Cornflowers Ghost. Pullyblanks novel exudes a deep reverence for the Saint Lawrence River and the Thousand Islands that comes from personal knowledge, leaving the reader wanting to explore both the region and the deeper mysteries of their own experience.
