The Peretz kids are on a quest for Temple gold.
After battling pirates, kidnappers and other scoundrels this past summer, all that the Peretz family wants is a quiet Chanukah vacation in Israel. It's an enjoyable getaway until the last day, when things start to get strange.
Rutvij Rao runs the Acra in Jerusalem, a fortress built centuries ago by a Greek tyrant named Antiochus. Antiochus was defeated in the story of Chanukah, and the remains of his destroyed fortress are now a museum for tourists. But Rutvij, Antiochus's descendant, has his own plans for the old ruin.
Resolved to avenge his great ancestor's humiliating defeat by the Maccabees, the egomaniac Rutvij is turning the Acra into the capitol of his own new dictatorship. He has trapped all of the museum's visitors, "inviting" them to be founding citizens; nobody leaves until the world acknowledges Rutvij Rao's kingdom. Unfortunately for him, his captives include the Peretzes.
Yaakov Peretz and his siblings are determined to escape from the Acra and to stop Rutvij Rao in his tracks. The kids have discovered the fortress's well-guarded secret: a mysterious map of a maze carved into a little-known passage running underneath the ancient citadel.
Join them on their latest daring adventure, which will take them on supersonic trains, to the frozen peaks of the Himalayas, and through perilous underground tunnels, as they race to uncover a Temple fortune and to free the mad dictator's hostages...especially their parents!
