Valley of the Assassins
by Ian MacAlister
First Printing 1976
"Eric Larson was an adventurer. There were less polite names, of course, but Larson tried to stay on the right side of the law - when it was convenient.
He had a fine boat, a supply of good liquor, and an uncommitted future - until he picked up a shipwrecked stranger in the Persian Gulf. A stranger with a mysterious map.
The map was the key to the fabulous treasure of the ancient Assassins - a secret group of murderous fanatics thought long dead. They had terrorized and taken tribute from mighty princes. they had killed and robbed without fear, for to them death was the sure way to paradise. Was their treasure still intact? Were some of them still alive?
Some were still alive - and waiting.
Waiting for someone like Larson to make a move toward the treasure..." - Valley of the Assassins
