In a baffling situation where nothing is what it appears to be, where the FBI, high ranking Beijing officials, the long hidden monks, and the almost forgotten history of the region all pull him in different directions, Shan finds his devotion to the truth sorely tested. Traveling from Tibet to Beijing to the U.S., he must find the links between murder on two continents, a high profile art theft, and an enigmatic, long-missing figure from history.
"Erudite, eloquent, and entertaining, Pattison thrills both mystery enthusiasts and readers fascinated by, and concerned about, Tibet."
--Booklist (Starred Review)
"Salted with wonderfully effective set pieces."
