Publisher's summary[]

Original German[]

In Chicago, muß man einiges gefaßt sein. Auf Hafenratten und harte Burschen, Killer und Kanaillen. Kein Wunder also, daß sich Indiana Jones plötzlich mit einem soliden Zementblock an den Füßen wiederfindet, kurz nachdem ein paar narbengesichtige Halunken aufgetaucht sind. Keine sonderlich aussichtsreiche Situation — und alles nur wegen Professor Petryk, der vor kurzem eine sensationalle Entdeckung gemacht hat. Dann ist da noch der Mormonenjunge Zach, der Indy eine alte Tonscheibe verkaufen will, die, wie sich nur zu bald Kultur der Anasazi-Indianer zuzuordnen ist. Auf der halsbrecherischen Flucht vor Gangstern und Gorillas landen Indy und seine Gefährten in einer uralten Stadt und werden in ein Abenteuer ungeahnter Ausmaße verwickelt. Und Indiana dämmert langsam die ganze Wahrheit — daß man sich an einem Stück Ton verdammt die Finger verbrennen kann.

On the breakneck flight from gangsters and gorillas, Indy and his companions wind up in an ancient city and an adventure of unimaginable proportions. And Indiana slowly realizes the whole truth: that you can burn your fingers on a piece of clay.
