Book Description

21 Feb 2011
'A boy haunts his killer before reincarnating as his son' As TV cameras roll, a Tibetan boy lama is assassinated in Santa Fe, New Mexico. The event is a coup for media mogul Mark Rider, a triumph for Chinese General Xi, and a tragedy for top Hollywood actress Susan Groves. As Susan chases the truth, she is chased in turn, the media tracking her down to a love tryst on the English coastline. Death happens, but it is not the end. The boy lama peers out at media mogul Rider from the afterlife, and is born again as one of Rider's twins. Sixteen years pass, and retribution comes.

More About the Author

Martin Goodman was born in Leicester, and has lived and worked in China, Qatar, the USA, Saudi Arabia, Thailand, Germany, The Netherlands, Italy and France. Travel forms a large part of his writing: both for strictly travel-related books and also for novels and biographies. His writing takes on spirituality (holy women; shamanism; sacred space; spiritual traditions) while other themes are the inheritance of war: how the effects of war are passed on down the generations; and the never-say-die story, characters living out their beliefs against the odds. His first novel ON BENDED KNEES was shortlisted for the Whitbread prize, and his most recent biography SUFFER AND SURVIVE won 1st Prize, Basis of Medicine in the BMA Book Awards 2008. He is the Professor of Creative Writing at the University of Hull, where he also directs the Philip Larkin Centre. He lives in Hull and London.

1.0 out of 5 stars Unmitigated Tripe 21 Nov 2013
Format:Paperback
This ludicrous novel is a combination of pseudo-Buddhist claptrap and sub-Michael Crichton airport thriller kitsch, hurling words around the page with all the grace of a builder dragging a sack of cement. We are treated to laughable ethnic stereotypes and a plot that could have been lifted from Alan Partridge's pitching session with his BBC editor over lunch ('Monkey tennis!'). Frank Zappa said rock journalism is people who can't write interviewing people who can't talk for people who can't read. All that's missing to complete that set here is a DVD of the author 'in conversation' with himself. The Buddhist theme is full of passive-aggressive delusions of grandeur, but then again this is an author who has written a New Age book announcing that he is the prophet of a new world order (I kid you not). This novel is a pile of unmitigated tripe.

5.0 out of 5 stars Look Who's Watching - Brilliant! 27 Mar 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
I would urge everyone to read this novel! It has a zany, but totally grounded premise, larger than life, yet rooted in truth. It crosses genres and defies expectations. It's Karma with a capital 'K'. The nail-biting tension of a thriller, mixed in with beautifully evocative locations, underpinned with words of wisdom, which seep into your pores without preaching. It's life-affirming and joyous!

5.0 out of 5 stars Really found his voice 12 May 2011
By shottup
Format:Paperback
I have just finished reading this book (on my Kindle which I love!)
Every book Martin writes seems to take on a new genre - his last was
well received and won awards and was a biography of the scientist,
J S Haldane - but I feel Martin has really found his voice in this book.
I don't normally read "Thrillers" but once started I couldn't put it down.
Martin is writing about places that are fascinating to those of us who haven't
been there (eg Santa Fe, New Mexico) and taking us into a world that is far
away from our everyday experience (London/politics, power of media, challenges
of reincarnation)but absorbing us into the lives of the characters in a very
real and human way.
