Vivid and enormously action-packed, H.

Finding themselves in deadly peril from that country’s cruel king and the evil sorceress who conspires behind his throne, the explorers escape, but what they seek could be the most savage trap of all—the forbidden, impenetrable, and spectacular King Solomon’s Mines. &&LBR&&R&&LBR&&R&&L/P&&R&&LP style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt"&&R&&LSTRONG&&RBenjamin Ivry&&L/B&&R&&L/B&&R is the author of biographies of Arthur Rimbaud, Francis Poulenc, and Maurice Ravel.
