Author(s): Philip Kerr

General Fiction

The world hovers on the brink of disaster as the nations of the Indian sub-continent rattle their nuclear sabres.  Meanwhile, high in the Himalayas, in an almost inaccessible mountain cave, a discovery is made which will change forever mankind's sense of itself. Prompted by the find, a brilliant young American anthropologist leads her team to the Himalayas.  There she encounters a living link with humanity's origins: a tribe of man-like, ape-like beings, who, despite their placid nature, have inspired the legends of the Abominable Snowman. Almost as soon as they are discovered, man's gentle cousins are in mortal danger of exploitation and perhaps extinction.  U.S. Security forces take a predatory interest in the valley which has sheltered the creatures for thousands of years.  Who will triumph in this riveting tale of international politics, deadly technology, heart-stopping adventure and simple humanity?
