I have a theory the first of these novels has a lower average rating than the later ones Not I think because it s worse than the others but because while many may pick up the first book of this series only the ones who like the first book stick with it I know I know but did I say it was a groundbreaking theory And you really should read these books in the right order And I think if you love this series you love it wholeheartedly But then I can only speak for myselfFor some reason I found the beginning of this book extremely confusing for the first 100 pages or so I had no idea what was going on and what had happened So I just read on to see where the book would take me I don t know whether it was intended to be that way or if it was just me being a bit too tired or too dumb but either way it didn t take away my enjoyment of the book After a murder is discovered during a celebration of the Dalai Lama s birthday the murder investigation turns into a treasure hunt including the search of a mysterious gompa with secret passages and riddles and everything I really enjoyed that part of the story But at this point it s clear that the main appeal of the series aren t the crime plots but the people and the places It was very interesting to see the change in Corbett and Yao as the story progressed and Tan too is a fascinating character I also love seeing things through Shan s eyes it s very different from the way we see things sometimes and still also different from the way Tibetans see things so he s in a kind of in between position His visit to the US was a startling read I think Pattison does a great job at conveying these different ways of seeing things The most touching if also very saddening part of this book was the relationship between Shan and his son And while the solution was maybe a little too convenient and not what would really happen well so is what happens to Shan at the end of the first book and it s not like it still wasn t heartbreaking Only two books left

Beautiful Ghosts Read & download á PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Read Beautiful Ghosts Disgraced former Beijing Inspector Shan Tao Yun has been living in the remote mountains of Tibet since his unofficial release from a work camp Without status official identity or the freedom to return to his. By now the pattern of the plots of these Inspector Shan mysteries is well established We ve got the official from Beijing who is corrupt and criminal who will stop at nothing to achieve his aims We ve got the Chinese official who is the good socialist who initially appears to be an enemy of Inspector Shan but in the end proves to be an honest ally We have the misguided American who during the course of the book is converted to the wisdom and peace of Buddhism And of course we have Shan the former inspector from Beijing who lost everything when he ran afoul of a powerful figure in the Chinese government and was sent to a work camp in Tibet which proved to be his spiritual salvation And we have Tan who in my opinion is one of the most interesting characters in these books He was the official in charge of the work camp that Shan was assigned to and it was he who authorized Shan s unofficial release after the prisoner helped him solve a mystery at the camp Moreover in this book we have a repetition of the action of the previous novels in that Shan and his two Buddhist teachers Gendun and Lokesh accompany an expedition on a turgid progression through caves and tunnels in the mountains of Tibet Those caves and tunnels are filled with the most preposterously elaborate Buddhist temples and treasures that are guarded by secret groups of the faithful who manage to keep Buddhism alive in the face of the strong opposition of the Chinese government These travels continue endlessly almost literally it seems and nothing much ever happens except that old Tibetans freuently give small cries of delight or groans of despair and knowing glances are passed routinely among those in the know If I had a dollar for every time an old Tibetan or an old lama cries or groans in this book I could probably go to dinner and a movie Really the whole thing gets extremely tedious after a whileThe first half of the book seemed utterly muddled and confusing to me but it improved in the second half once the mystery part of the novel actually got under way The writing seemed at least marginally sharper and better plottedThe mystery begins at the ancient ruins of the Zhoka monastery where hill people have gathered for a celebration of the Dalai Lama s birthday Local herders bring in a body of one of their own and claim that he was murdered by godkillers Then Surya a monk who is a talented artist and an old friend of Gendun s appears covered in blood and announces that he has killed a man and that therefore he is No a monk No a human Confusion reigns and the ensuing investigation brings Shan s old nemesis and savior Colonel Tan into the picture Before they reach the resolution of the mystery murders will be revealed and will occur one of them in far away Seattle And the source of all this evil will be revealed to be greed for the possession of art and the theft of the uniue art from some of those aforementioned decorated caves Shan finds himself teamed with an FBI agent named Corbett in trying to solve the crimes and bring a little justice to both their worldsOne other spanner thrown into the works here is the introduction of Shan s son Ko whom he had not seen since he was a small child He is now a young man of nineteen and a criminal sent to work coal mines in Tibet Shan is promised an opportunity to meet him if he will aid the investigation but when he does meet him he seems to be a cruel sociopath with no redeeming ualities More pain for a father who has already borne so much pain In the end things are if not totally resolved at least moved forward and yes a kind of rough justice is achieved The ending between Shan and his son is actually uite movingThe character of Shan is a sympathetic one and Colonel Tan is intriguing and so I do find myself caring almost against my will about what happens in these books In the past I have given the author a pass on the confusion of his plots putting it down to my unfamiliarity with the philosophy of Buddhism but that pass has expired I read books all the time about cultures I m not familiar with and have no problem understanding them when they are clearly written Obfuscation rather than enlightenment though seems to be the aim of Pattison in this series and that is annoying The other possibility is that he s just not a very good writer
