Read full description of the books:
High in the remote Himalayas, who is the traitor—the nervous Dr. Chamba, the dashing Dr. Norsang, the beautiful nurse DaDon or the weary Swiss-Tibetan Kelsang?
Xavier Vonalp takes journalist Claire Raymond to his medical project in Tibet on a quest to nail the informer betraying Tibetan patients fleeing to Nepal. Identifying which of his colleagues is the deadly turncoat is hard enough, but on the eve of their departure from Hong Kong, Claire's ex-lover Jim returns to beg a sensitive favor.
A Korean War vet, Jim's father trained Khampas to resist the Chinese occupation of Tibet. His plane crashed in the Himalayas but no body was found. Against her better judgment, Claire investigates and before she knows it, she's smuggling a fugitive Tibetan freedom fighter to safety from Jim's deadly “discipline,” and fighting to help Xavier, trapped by the informer on espionage charges, escape a ten-year Chinese prison sentence.
Who’s betraying whom? And how long can Claire risk Xavier’s project for the sake of unfinished business with Jim?
In this moving culmination to the third and final volume of D. L. Kung’s "The Handover Mysteries," Claire discovers the fate of Jim's father—a symbolic finale to the end of American influence over the now-confident Beijing regime.
