A long-dead mine in Jahilipur, India, suddenly spits out more gold that ever before, and suspicious Mr. Corbin of Intelligence One wants Dr. Quest to look into it. Turns out it's not gold but a rare metal called zanium. Only two scientists in the world can identify it - Dr. Quest and Professor Gunderson - and Gunderson died recently in a plain crash in Jahilipur. Or did he? With so many events and shady characters tied to Jahilipur, the Quest party investigates under the pretext of attending a tiger hunt with the local maharaja. Though outwardly welcomed, numerous attempts are made on their lives. Eventually, their suspicions of an old nemesis behind it all proves correct. Written by
