Indiana Jones meets Inspector Clouseau in a new comedy-adventure from the screwball imagination of Steven Luna!
In 1926, when technology was far simpler, the world much vaster, and the notion of global discovery still a thrilling and mysterious prospect, dashing adventurer extraordinaire Simeon Croom traveled far and wide on an intrepid search for evidence of forgotten prehistoric cultures—their ruins, their remnants, and their relics.
Then he took a job at Hydewhite Museum, and his life changed considerably.
Ten years after he abandoned his worldwide explorations in search of ancient artifacts and vanished civilizations and settled for lecturing about them instead, Croom receives an invitation for one last exploit from his oldest comrade and ex-artifact-hunting partner Horatio Bombfell. The mission? Travel into the heart of the steamy Sarabezi jungle and retrieve the Treasure Star, a mythological jeweled orb said to be a gift given by the gods to a shaman from the long-extinct Zingaloo tribe. It’s an offer Croom can hardly afford to pass up, especially with Hydewhite footing the bill. With his steadfast and sensible assistant Nebula Everhope along to keep the excursion from flying off the rails and nothing but a mysterious stone tablet that may (or may not) be a map to lead them onward, Croom and Bombfell head off on the adventure of a lifetime! But Bombfell’s increasingly sinister ways are undeniable, and all might not be as it seems regarding his intentions for the Treasure Star, if the relic even exists at all...
