The East seen from the inside, as it was, and as it is today. In this racy tale of mystery, adventure and romance, the 'bamboo curtain' is set aside and we enter the Asian world of ancient cultures and traditions, of mysticism, honour and integrity. Yet the delicate weave of the story contrasts dramatically against the shocking events that overtake the two central characters. The journey - indeed, the high drama - begins in Singapore, where Ray Koh and Kelly Wong, raised according to the strict family tenets of honour, humility and respect, are challenged to their very core by the modern world they inhabit. From their home, they travel to India and from there to the Himalayan peaks, where kidnapping, torture, violence and horrific murder change their lives for ever. The pace never slackens, moving from Ray and Kelly's modest Singaporean upbringing to the shock of modern-day realities. It is only by sacrificing certain values that they are able to survive. But will they endure the terrors inflicted upon them? Lionel Neill has lived in Europe, Latin-America, Africa and Asia. Notes of his extraordinary adventures and experiences spanning forty years have been preserved and brought vividly to life in the largely - but not entirely - fictional East, Oh Lord - East. Married with three sons, he now lives in Sussex, England.
