We spoke with Author Matthew Glavin from his home in Cranberry Lake on the K&J Show (Wednesday 08/08/12) about the book and his inspiration.
Glavin takes the true story of Joseph Bonaparte, former King of Spain, and spins a fascinating story about a legend that has been rumored in the Adirondack Mountains for more than 180 years.
Adirondack Treasure; The Bonaparte Legacy is more than a thrilling historical novel, it’s a compelling page turner. You won’t be able to put it down because you need to know that truth.
Joseph Benton has a 200 year old bible handed down from his famous ancestor Joseph Bonaparte, former Kind of Spain and older brother to Napoleon. Inside the bible is a cipher that family legend says leads to a magnificent treasure stolen from the Spanish Royal Treasury when King Joseph fled Spain.
This exciting treasure hunt blends historical faces with a terrific story and complex characters creating tension, pitting environmentalists vs. developer and friend vs. friend.
