(From the publisher):
The Dalai Lama is dead, and his bodily reincarnation must be found before the Chinese government finds him and brings an end to Tibetan Buddhism.
Camerawoman Maggie Walsh is about to pull off the biggest scoop of her career. In McLeod Ganj, home of the Tibetan government in exile, the Dalai Lama is secretly dying. Smuggling herself into the compound, Maggie films the footage she knows will make her a fortune. But her escape is thwarted by Tsering, an idealistic young monk. When she’s finally released, the Dalai Lama’s death has been announced to the world, and Maggie heads to his homeland to capture his people’s reaction. Tsering, too, is heading for Tibet. The reincarnation of the Dalai Lama has been born, and a remote oracle lake will reveal the location of the chosen child. As their paths cross, Tsering and Maggie find themselves drawn together in the most dangerous of quests. For once the Chinese Army discover who they’re looking for, there’s no way they’ll be allowed to leave Tibet alive…
