Evan Tanner lost his ability to sleep when he was wounded by a piece of shrapnel in Korea. He uses his extra waking hours to read, learn languages, and write theses for money. He has the unique hobby of joining lost cause organizations, in fact, he belongs to hundreds of them. He is a con man and a thief and upon learning of a treasure of hidden Armenian gold he takes off to claim it, landing himself in a Turkish prison and involved in a revolution before getting a chance at the treasure.
