A NOVEL OF ASSASSINS, MYSTICS, AND THE VALLEY OF BROKEN DREAMS
The pace intensifies as Merrick and his shadowy mercenaries move to seize control of Nepal’s most priceless resource.
The threat to Andrew and Kate from Merrick is greater than ever as he hunts them through the back streets of Kathmandu. Frantic for their safety, nine-year-old kitchen boy, Ashok, gets help from his teacher, Sadananda, the venerable old sadhu who has unexpected connections to military intelligence.
The old man calms them with evocative tales of the ancient Himalayas: the prodigious young artist, Aniko’s ordeal with Kubilai Khan; the wanton destruction of Kathmandu in the 15th Century; and the story of an upstart king’s ruthless creation of modern Nepal.
What part does Climate Change play in the mercenaries’ dangerous conspiracy? With the fate of the subcontinent on the edge, the deadly struggle results in a final, explosive confrontation.
