In Water Touching Stone , the sequel to the internationally acclaimed The Skull Mantra , Shan Tao Yun is cloistered in a remote Tibetan sanctuary when he receives shattering news. A teacher revered by the oppressed has been found slain and, one by one, her orphaned students have followed her to her grave, victims of a killer harboring unfathomable motives. Abandoning his mountain hermitage, Shan Tao Yun, a former Beijing police inspector who has been exiled to Tibet, embarks on a search for justice. Shadowed by bizarre tales of an unleashed 'demon,' Shan braces himself for even darker imaginings as he stalks a killer and fights to restore spiritual balance to the ancient and tenuous splendor of Tibet.

Excellent work written within a political and religious framework. Central to the story is the current situation in Tibet, trapped by their Chinese occupiers. Many references to Buddhism and Tibetan culture.

This is a slow read so far. No rating yet.

As the book was due, I returned it without finishing it. Too many characters with foreign names - hard to keep track.
