Recommended for: thriller and action fans; or if interested in Tibet
Read in March, 2009, read count: 1

In 1920, a former member of British Intelligence has retired and returned to England. His wife has died and he is raising his ten year old son, Wiliam, alone. Then William is abducted at knifepoint. Now Major Christopher Wylan finds himself in a unusual chase acroos the world--ending in Tibet.

That is basically it. The book jacket said "breath-taking thriller" but I did not find it breath taking at all. It was merely an average action yarn. I tried it because of the unusual time frame and locale (Tibet, 1920) but even the exotic locale did not lift the book out of the "just average" catagory. Nothing really BAd, about the book; just nothing really good either.

REcommended for thriller/action fans who have nothing else handy.
