Description

Captain Gordon is hired to fly a team of American anthropologists to an arid mountain region now part of Pakistan bordering the Arabian Sea. All goes well until an ancient map is discovered in an old pottery jar, revealing the site of a vast treasure that Alexander the Great was bringing to Greece from his conquest of India. More than 10,000 of Alexander's soldiers and camp followers lay buried in the high desert plains along with the loot of India-hidden in a tomb never to be reclaimed. With the map's discovery, all academic pretense is dropped. Now Gordon finds himself caught in the middle of the expedition where murder replaces scholarship as the best method to uncover the valuable hoard.

Professional reviews

"A full-cast narration is perfectly suited to the Golden Age of adventure stories. Cinematic-quality music and sound effects combine with the voice talents of Josh Robert Thompson, Ralph Lister, and Michael Yurchak, to name a few, to create a complete old-time radio listening experience. This collection of three short stories features the title story, in which freelance archaeologists search Pakistan for a lost treasure of Alexander the Great. The other stories, "Price of a Hat" and "Starch and Stripes," are not quite as engaging. The excellent narrators, sound effects, and music will have listeners will imagining themselves traveling the globe in search of adventures. S.C.A.
