A group of Legionnaires reaches Fort Zinderneuf to find everyone dead, and a note in one of the sergeant's hands confesses to the theft of a precious gem called the Blue Water. The mystery of the gem and the deaths actually begins 15 years earlier. A kindly woman named Thatcher is raising 3 orphans, the Geste brothers, and to support them she sells the family jewel, the Blue Water, and replaces it with a fake. Young Michael Beau Geste and his brothers witness this deed, and to protect their guardian, they steal the phony gem and join the Foreign Legion. The mystery begins to unfold when the brothers are sent to North Africa and encounter a tyrannical sergeant. Download and start listening now!

    " Great adventure....great mystery...who stole the "Blue Water". Hooked you the first two chapters. Best adventure books for boys. "

    " This is probably the one book that got me involved with reading as much as I do. It is one of the first books I read as a teenager and I loved it. The intrigue of mystery and suspense abounds throughout the book. "

    " Oddly modern in that an incident gets told two times from two perspectives. The first happens immediately at the beginning of the book where the mysterious circumstances are laid out, after which the story is retold from the beginning by its actual participants. Maybe I've just killed your interest with that, but I assure you, there was plenty of adventure and crisis and questions to keep me going. I may have to check out the movie made of this as well. "

    " Ok, this book could have been a lot better except that it was very confusing at the start. This is because the book starts nearly at the end of the story and so you aren't really sure of what's going on. But you keep reading anyway and eventually it starts at the beginning of the story. Then it really starts getting good and the story becomes very clever. It also ended well, which is always a bonus. I would recommend this book only if you have a lot of patience and if you have no other book to read. It's a classic, so not a horrible choice to have in your library. "
