The Rose of Tibet
Lionel Davidson's highly regarded second novel
Reprint. Hardback in dustwrapper. 19 × 12.5cm, 320pp
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. A highly regarded adventure that counted Graham Greene and Daphne du Maurier among its fans.
A good reading copy. There is a slight lean to the spine and the wrapper has a few splashes to the spine but it remains in perfectly good readable condition.
