The seven crystal balls -- Prisoners of the sun -- Land of black gold.
In 'The Seven Crystal Balls', Tintin is faced with an ancient Incan curse, which is causing its victims to fall into a life-threatening coma. The tomb of Rascar Capac has been unearthed! But one by one, the finders fall into a terrifying coma. Tintin must somehow fathom out the meaning behind his only clue: the shattered crystal ball lying beside each of the victims. In 'Prisoners of the Sun', when Professor Calculus is kidnapped, Tintin and a desperate Captain Haddock set off to Peru on a rescue mission, braving runaway train carriages, yellow fever and avalanches. Then they must find an ancient Inca tribe if they are to find their great friend. In 'Land of Black Gold', doctored petrol is blowing up vehicles all around the country. Determined to find the culprits, Tintin heads for the Middle East, but he is in for a nasty shock when he encounters a familiar face in the desert.
