  • Sydney and Nigel must return an idol to save the life of another relic hunter.

    Another relic hunter (Ross) tells Sydney to help him. He took an idol from an African temple - but it must have a curse - because he is aging quickly. Sydney and Nigel rush to Africa with the idol (and Ross' notebook) but have to avoid the intrusive local military. Trying to hide, Sydney buys a fake idol as cover. Abdulla appears out of nowhere and leads them out of town and out of the military's way - but only after the military rips the notebook in a scuffle. They make their way to the village - where the African temple is located - and avoid the local villagers as they enter the Temple. Abdulla then turns on Sydney when it appears she has the idol. He takes the fake idol and runs out. With time also running out, Sydney and Nigel solve a complicated set of clues with only half the notebook, find the right path and return the idol. In the meantime, the military have caught up with Abdulla and he is forced to return to the Temple. He takes them down the wrong path and they are killed. The villagers enter the Temple at Winter Solstice and are relieved to find the idol. Something magical happens and Ross regains his former age...

    This is an exciting tale - with hiding from foes, some car chases and complicated clues to solve. Abdulla - played by Blu Mankuma - is very good as he displays various facets of his character. Claudia also shows unexpected sympathy for Ross' dilemma. And Sydney and Nigel are in their element as they try to understand the Temple's writings to solve the clue to the right path.moreless
