Book Description

In 1959, British agents masterminded the escape of the Dalai Lama from Tibet. Three years later, Paul Chavasse is doing it all over again…

A vitally important scientist, holding intelligence that could shift the balance of world power, is being held in China.

British secret agent Paul Chavasse, responsible for extracting the Dalai Lama from under Chinese noses, is the perfect man to slip through the border, locate the scientist and bring him back to the West.

But Chavasse’s nerve, stamina and loyalties will all be tested as he finds the Chinese are reluctant to let their asset go without a fight…

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant 27 Dec. 2011
By Bridgey
Format:Paperback
A new release of a Higgins offering written in the 60's. The book has a newly written beginning and ending which are set in modern times (or at least modern when rereleased in the 90's).

Paul Chavasse is back, this time he is sent to the frozen lands of Tibet. After rescuing the Dalai Lama he is requested to re-enter the country in order to bring back vital information that could help the west in the space race. This information comes in the form of a Doctor Hoffner who has shunned fame and fortune in order to help local villagers in their health and also their battle against the Chinese. The militants are headed by the very formidable Captain Li who will stop at nothing, including torture to get what he wants.

An excellent read with a few twists and turns, alongside the action Higgins is famed for.

Jack Higgins books are always well written, and lots of research is obviously been gone into,
I have currently read 54 of his books with no regrets I particularly like his Sean Dillon Books
I would recommend his books to anyone who likes a good read.

I always enjoy the speedy movement of the plot with Higgins and am not bothered about the lack of description and technical stuff. A simple straight forward read. Love it.
