After a starfaring evangelist and his flock disappear while searching for the lost worlds of the Three Kings, a spacegoing salvage team must follow his trail to find the treasure or pay the price from the galactic underworld's vicious repo men.

Blackwell North Amer
For centuries, interstellar prospectors had searched for the fabled worlds of the Three Kings, the lost El Dorado of the galaxy. But none had succeeded. Only the mad cyborg Prophet, Ishmael Hand, had ever seen the mysterious system, and he had refused to reveal its location before vanishing forever into history. Then, with the help of his flock, a starfaring evangelist - Doctor Karl Woodward, preacher and leader of the starship The Mountain - found it, only to disappear in turn.
Now a new group of explorers must follow the trial that Woodward blazed. A spacegoing salvage team, desperately in debt after a violent alien menace ruins a lucrative assignment and decimates the group, is hired to follow the clues Woodward left behind. But the team's shady creditor won't want to wait ... and they won't much care how they get their investments back.
Fearing pursuit by their former backers, the group heads off for the ultimate salvage operation. By hook or by crook, they will find the Three Kings - if the galactic underworld's repo men don't get them first!
