Before Indiana Jones and the Lost Ark were even a gleam in Spielberg’s eye, one intrepid pilot flew out of the sky in search of treasure... only to find a bit of hell on earth.
Captain Gordon lives like he flies - by the seat of his pants, taking on any job and all comers. Now he’s bound for the forbidding mountains along the shores of the Arabian Sea, transporting a team of anthropologists on the trail of Alexander the Great. But ancient history is about to come to dangerous life with the discovery of a long-buried map - a map leading to high adventure, untold treasure, and cold-blooded murder...
Gordon’s headed deep into "The Tomb of the Ten Thousand Dead" - unearthing a secret that could bury him.
Not only was Hubbard steeped in the history of the ancient world, he was also an avid adventurer - both in his own right and as a respected member of the famed Explorers Club. As such, he brought a wealth of insight, experience and authenticity to all his tales of adventure.
Also includes two additional adventures: The Price of a Hat, in which the key to the Russian Czar’s life is hidden in a most unexpected place, and Starch and Stripes, the story of a US Marine who sets a trap for a tropical warlord that reverberates all the way back to Washington.
