Deep in the heart of Tibet, disgraced ex-Beijing police inspector Shan Tao Yun is on the run from the brutal Chinese army. He has agreed to lead an expedition to return a long-missing stone eye to the idol from which it was stolen an act that, according to Tibetan prophecy, will save the sacred place where it rests. But the pilgrimage to this distant valley turns into a desperate flight when the monk guiding them is murdered and Shan learns that the stone eye was stolen back from a Chinese army brigade, who is now in hot pursuit.Tense and moving, filled with the spiritual and geographic landscapes of the oppressed land of modern Tibet, Bone Mountain is a spectacular achievement from a major voice in crime fiction.
