    The Indian town of McLeod Ganj has been home to the Dalai Lama for more than forty years. Now, the Dalai Lama is dead, and his followers can only conceal his death for so long before word spreads to the rest of world. Maggie Walsh, a daring British photo-journalist, has received a tip about the earth-shattering event and flown straight to the remote village. But before she can get out with the story she is apprehended and remains trapped in detention while the world media trumpet the news.

    Now that the Dalai Lama’s death has become public, the Tibetan exiles are faced with a dangerous task: to find his reincarnation before the Chinese government can stop them. The borders have been closed and Tibetan nationalists are being arrested throughout the country. In spite of the Chinese occupying forces, an exiled group of Buddhist monks must secretly cross the Himalayas into occupied Tibet to consult a legendary oracle lake for clues to the newborn child’s location.

    Sensing the story of her career, Maggie has smuggled herself into Tibet to join the monks in their search. She soon realizes that this may be the most dangerous assignment of her life. Because the Chinese are determined to prevent the child being found, and will do anything to meet their goal. And when the fate of the Tibetan nation and the future of Buddhism itself are at risk, the most unexpected players may be forced to fight back.


    Paul Adam's acclaimed novel The Rainaldi Quartet brilliantly portrayed the centuries of history and mystery behind the world's most valuable violins. Now, Adam turns his expert eye for vivid detail to the Far East, capturing the conflict and culture of Tibet in this sweeping new adventure thriller.
