A Novel of High Adventure

Indiana Jones, archaeology professor and swashbuckling adventurer, has unearthed many an ancient treasure. But now, the very future of the world depends on his finding one special relic.

With bullwhip in his hand and a beautiful lady at his side, Jones journeys from Nepal and Cairo to the Mediterranean, dodging poisons, traps and snakes, battling rivals old and new, all in pursuit of an ancient artifact said to give invincible power to its posessor.

It's a battle to a startling finish, a finish dictated by the magic, the light - and the power - of the Lost Ark.
