In dit verhaal spelen vliegtuigen een ondergeschikte rol. De omstandigheden in de woestijn in Noord-Afrika des te meer. Op een ietwat merkwaardige, gekunstelde manier raakt het team van Biggles betrokken bij een schatzoekerij temidden van Arabische bedoeenen. Jammer dat de historische waarde van de gevonden "schat" zo onderbelicht blijft.

Biggles searches for the lost city of Ophir and the legendary treasure of the Queen of Sheba. Will Biggles, Ginger, Algy and Bertie find it first, or will a gang of equally determined criminals beat them to it? Does the treasure exist at all? Added to the story are the local Arab Bedouin who don't take kindly to the sudden appearance of all these unwelcome treasure seekers. Great escapism adventure, which quickly took me back to my boyhood years.
