Praise

Praise for the Inspector Shan Series

“Surprises and mysteries abound . . . [Prayer of the Dragon] taught me more about Tibet—modern and ancient—than I had managed to learn elsewhere over the years.”
The Washington Post

“I’ve seldom read a novel that more effectively captures the soul of its setting, in all of its contradictions, difficulties and beauty.”
—Nancy Pearl, NPR

“Nothing I’ve read or seen about how China has systematically crushed the soul of Tibet has been as effective . . . A thriller of laudable aspirations and achievements.”
Chicago Tribune

“A cocktail of action and adventure . . . A great read.”
The Guardian

“Shan becomes our Don Quixote . . . Set against a background that is alternately bleak and blazingly beautiful, this is at once a top-notch thriller and a substantive look at Tibet under siege.”
Publishers Weekly, Starred Review

“A rich and multilayered story that mirrors the complexity of the surrounding land.”
San Francisco Chronicle
