finished _the skull mantra_ by pattison. i had never heard of him before but i was just browsing at border's book store and found it and the cover said it won an edgar so i got it.

hardboiled? i'm gonna say yes. there is brutal ugly death. and inspector shan feels fear but never shirks his quest for the truth, no matter what the consequences.

a very good mystery with an interesting view of tibet. tibetan noir at its finest. well thought out, intricate, with good characters. fun.
