A New Joshua Penn Adventure
Dr. Joshua Lee Penn faces the toughest emotional challenge of his life after Taka's abduction by a psychotic genius, Ernst Richter, who presides over an international anti-fascist organization, Der Widerstand, the Resistance. The Chairman of the Resistance needs gold bullion to repay a one-billion dollar loan to Iran or forfeit his life. Richter believes the element he covets lies in Ophir, a gold-rich area from where King Solomon's ships carried the precious metal to Ezion-Geber in the Gulf of Aqaba to caravan to Jerusalem three thousand years ago, and that Penn, who published an article on its probable location, can find it despite the fact that for nearly three millennia treasure hunters have searched for Ophir to no avail. Richter's diabolical scheme coerces Penn to aid his worst enemies or sacrifice the woman he loves. Join Dr. Penn as he attempts to rescue his wife and avoid his own assassination ordered by the Iranian Supreme Leader with the help of the ghost agency directed by his friend and mentor Ichito Fujimora.
