Publisher's summary[edit | edit source]

After finding a long-lost inscription in a Mayan pyramid, Indiana Jones is hot on the trail of the world's most dangerous weapon — something so important it could decide the fate of World War II. Not surprisingly, a horde of Nazis are after the very same thing!

The chase will take Indy from the Yucatán jungles to Rome, Italy; all the way to Egypt, where the heart of the mystery lies. But to discover the fantastic secret, Indy will have to survive battles with one of the most lethal enemies he's ever met!

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

The original title of the book was intended to be The Monsters of Mount Sinai in reference of the story's finale, but concerns that the title could be interpreted as anti-Semitic saw a change.[1]

A Nazi with a mechanical arm was an early idea for Arnold Ernst Toht in Raiders of the Lost Ark that was rejected as unrealistic by George Lucas. The idea resurfaced with Gutterbuhg in the Indiana Jones and the Monkey King script, which also has a Nazi named Mephisto. Rinzler had researched these concepts when writing The Complete Making of Indiana Jones.
