This time Pratt’s favourite discovers, while staying in Adnan, Turkey, a map of the hidden treasure of the ancient Persian king Cyrus. Here again we will see Corto’s on and off friend Rasputin, who Corto, for the purpose of treasure hunt, rescued from prison called “The Gilded House of Samarkand”. During a long and trying journey to riches Corto meets a motley gallery of characters like soldiers of fortune, lost British actors, even his own doppelganger.
