The original Capt King was an officer of British Intelligence. He was chasing German or Turkish enemy agents stirring up rebellion against the British Raj when he blundered into a lost palace in the mountains, piles of diamonds, the perfectly preserved bodies of a Roman general and his lover, and a beautiful Indian queen who rules a horde of savage tribesmen.
