The iron Buddha stood guard over a fortune in blood-stained banknotes, hidden in a shallow grave at its feet since the outbreak of war.
Armed with only a rough map and a gut-searing greed, Bob Fitzhugh had come to Korea to find the ill-starred millions. But the Buddha guarded its secret well. Before Fitzhugh unearthed the money, a CID informer, a beautiful woman of mystery and a brave Korean patriot were to meet ugly, violent fates.
To Fitzhugh himself, the bloody cache was to prove a treasure trove of death.
