Lionel Davidson - The Rose of Tibet (2nd Hand Paperback)
Hugh Whittington has gone missing - reported dead while filming near Mount Everest.
Determined to find him, his brother Charles embarks on a perilous and illegal journey from India into the forbidden land of Tibet, all the way to the monastery of Yamdring.
There awaits a woman with a deadly and ghostly secret, an emerald treasure to guard and the invading Chinese Red Army.
The Rose of Tibet (1962) is Lionel Davidson's second novel. His extraordinary and thrilling tale of a haunted land is among the very finest of its kind and prompted Graham Greene to remark: 'I hadn't realised how much I had missed the genuine adventure story until I read The Rose of Tibet.'
Its combination of adventure and travelogue is further proof of Davidson's great variety as a writer, and caused Daphne du Maurier to say: 'It has all the excitement of King Solomon's Mines.'
With an introduction by Anthony Horowitz.
