Recommended. By Hugo Pratt. Set in the years 1921-22, the action leaps from Turkey to Azerbaijan, and to the Caspian Sea, tracing the path of the legendary Silk Road, as Corto hunts for the fabled treasure of Alexander the Great, hallucinates on opium, and remains nonchalant through every near-death escapade. He meets the Whirling Dervishes, Joseph Stalin, the Hashinin sect of assassins, the Turkish general Enver Pasha, and the return of Venexiana Stevenson and the witch-tongued Rasputin, just escaped from prison.

Set in the years 1921-22, the action leaps from Turkey to Azerbaijan, and to the Caspian Sea, tracing the path of the legendary Silk Road, as Corto hunts for the fabled treasure of Alexander the Great, hallucinates on opium, and remains nonchalant through every near-death escapade. He meets the Whirling Dervishes, Joseph Stalin, the Hashinin sect of assassins, the Turkish general Enver Pasha, and the return of Venexiana Stevenson and the witch-tongued Rasputin, just escaped from prison.

Corto Maltese sets out on another globetrotting adventure after the discovery of a Byron manuscript in a mosque on the isle of Rhodes.

Pratt further explores the theme of dual personality, as Corto tries to evade his doppelganger, the Turkish revolutionary Timur Chevket, always mindful of his mother’s warning that coming face to face with his look-alike would mean disaster.

Quality paperback with cover flaps.
