On their last night, Roy is faced with a strange request from the head Lama of the monastery. Apparently, a rare invaluable manuscript, the very existence of which is a secret, is missing from the underground vaults of the monastery.

Beneath its placid surface lurk intrigues, conspiracies, unbridled passion, ambition, religious extremism and elemental fear. Worse, Roy’s very life is in grave danger, hanging by the proverbial thread….
