From the acclaimed author of CLOUD MOUNTAIN comes a suspenseful novel of rescue and redemption set in Central Asia at the start of the Cold War, with two unforgettable heroines whose fates are irrevocably intertwined.
When a plane carrying American journalist Aidan Shaw goes down in Kashmir in 1949, Aidan’s wife Joanna refuses to accept that he is dead. Aidan has been accused of harboring Communist sympathies, and his mission to Kashmir was supposed to clear his name of these charges. Now Joanna is convinced that his disappearance involves more than accident.
With Aidan’s best friend and a mysterious native girl, Kamla, whom she has saved from an Indian brothel—or flash house; Joanna sets off for the northernmost reaches of India. The ensuing journey leads over some of the highest mountain passes in the world, finally landing the rescuers in western China just weeks before the Communist takeover—a world where nothing is as it appears.
