Acters I have ever met in a book It s good I don t have to limit myself to just one thing however because that way I can also talk about Pattison s ncanny ability to describe a country and its traditions and people so well it truly feels like you are there and you can feel the wind and sense the beauty And I can talk about how powerful his descriptions of the crimes against the Tibetans are And how beautiful his language is and how he manages to combine the depressing truth with hope even if it is fictional But there are good people as well as BAD AND IT S GOOD TO BE TO and it s good to be able to that in what a great main character Inspector Shan is and how wonderfully different these crime novels are because apart from trying to find out the truth there s not much that s comparable to mainstream crime fiction Since Shan is officially listed as an escapee from a labor camp he can t go around and demand proof or do background check or call a crime lab or do any of the things detectives in other novels do His ests for truth are a lot less straightforward but still told in such a compelling way that it s impossible to put the book down even though there are no cheap thrills I don t think these books are everybody s cup of tea but then again which book ever is But I love them a lot and I cannot wait to read the restOh and one thing The Sweetest Burn (Broken Destiny, usually I prefer to read books in English if that s the original language But for the first time in a while Inderstand people when they say they re The Greek Tycoons Revenge used to the translation and when the translation is as good as this it snderstandable So I m going to stick to the German version Absolutely the best book yet by Eliot Pattison I had a little trouble getting into it but I think that was because of other things in my life not the book I couldn t put it down the last 100 pages and it was just wonderful Not technically a mystery but it s story starts with a murder and the guilty party is identified in the end In between so many things happen I love reading about Tibet about the mountains the animals the traditions and the people with which Pattison fills his world a very long book about chinese corruption and atrocities in Tibet good for a person like me with a bad coldneeded a long boo. Ery that seems attuned to the teachings of the party than those of Buddha And the further he travels into the mountains the Shan realises that what is at stake is not only justice but the spiritual survival of those who have joined his strange est At the heart of Pattison's powerful tale is a story of a brave oppressed people who have learned to endure by drawing strength from their land and their rich spiritual traditions.
