I didn't realise how little I knew about the Tibetan plight until I read this book, but the brilliantly researched and topical setting took nothing away from the breathtaking action and suspense that fills the pages from cover to cover! A feisty female journalist finds herself embroiled with 3 Tibetan monks in a race against time and the Chinese government to deliver the infant incarnation of the new dalai lama to the people of Tibet. You will not be able to put it down as you find yourself transported to join their perilous flight through a stunning mountain terrain! Paul Adam is a master of the topical thriller, I've read several others including Knife Edge and Genesis II. Knife Edge.Genesis II.
