Abstract:

"A resourceful shuttle trader from present-day Odessa tricks a tourist from St. Petersburg into joining him on a business trip to Istanbul. They are cheated by their Turkish partners and give chase, becoming inadvertently embroiled in the theft of a precious stone tablet from the local ethnographic museum. In pursuit of the robbers, the companions are transported back in time to the mythical city of Iram, where they are drawn into a world of dangerous court intrigues. Iram itself evokes the exoticism of The Arabian Nights, and the adventures that take place there are reminiscent of Mark Twain's Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court. Eventually the hapless traders return to Odessa and the whole trip would seem to have been a bad dream, were it not for the presence of a certain white camel."--BOOK JACKET.
