Scotland Yard, the DEA, heroin traffickers, and a mysterious adventuress all become involved in a continent-hopping adventure after archaeologist Stephen Kaine discovers the lost capital of the Persian Empire and the contents of the legendary Fire Temple

Blackwell North Amer
In the year 313 B.C., the great Persian city of Karmin-Yar was destroyed by an immense earthquake that reshaped the coast of the Black Sea. Buried in the wreckage was a century's worth of Persian gold.
More than two thousand years later, the ruins of Karmin-Yar are discovered by an American archeologist, Stephen Kaine. After five years, Kaine's tenure at the Karmin-Yar site is terminated under suspicious circumstances, and he is sent home packing.
Six months later, a ferry boat sinks in the frigid waters off the coast of Dover, England. On board is Kaine's daughter, Angela. In an opening scene of gripping suspense, the scuba-diving Kaine manages to rescue Angela. He also discovers that the sinking was no accident, and that its consequences would reach to Karmin-Yar itself.
In his third novel, Mark Graham fashions a thrilling adventure that moves like the wind from England to Istanbul, from the shores of the Black Sea to the mountains of Asia Minor to the Fire Temple of Karmin-Yar, where Kaine discovers that the Persian gold is being looted and exchanged in the poppy fields of Turkey for what will become heroin.
Throughout the novel Kaine finds himself the object of a deadly cat-and-mouse game involving Scotland Yard, the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency, ruthless heroin dealers, and the beautiful, enigmatic adventuress Jaymin Bartel, who may or may not be the enemy.
