Summoning is a dangerous thing. To the old Buddhists, words were the most dangerous weapon of all.' Shan Tao Yun is a former investigator for the chinese government who once got a little too close to the truth.
Now he breaks rocks in a Tibetan prison camp high in the Himalayas.
Only the remarkable courage of the Buddhist monks who are his fellow prisoners give him the will to survive.
But when a smartly dressed headless corpse is discovered on the bleak mountainside, Shan is forced to become a detective once more. And as he uncovers a web of intrigue involving a beautiful American mining engineer, Tibetan sorcerers, corrupt Chinese officials and the Buddhist Resistance, he begins to realise that far more than his own survival is at stake.
