J.W. Morrison, the mild mannered adventurer, wins a treasure map in a poker game. Its never been authenticated, but J.W. doesn’t care. The treasure of gold coins and jewels had been aboard the flagship of Sir Anthony Gibbons which had a solid gold masthead, the Golden Griffin. It had been attacked in 1849 on the Mediterranean Sea by Corsair pirates. After sinking the ship the pirates transported the treasure across the Sahara desert to a legendary mountain, the Jebel Khaoui. There, somewhere in the Atlas mountain range, was the ‘hollow mountain’ found by the three steps angularly cut by the Gods for easy access. Was the treasure real? Was the map authentic? J.W. Morrison and crew followed the map to find out.
