Description

MURDER IN THE HIGH HIMALAYA by Jonathan Green (unabridged) is presented by Blackstone Audio and comes with what is perhaps the best audiobook app available (see FEATURES, below). “A shattering tale that will appeal to readers of all things about Tibet, mountaineering, human rights and the preservation of cultural integrity.” (Shelf Awareness) Murder in the High Himalaya is the unforgettable account of the brutal killing of a seventeen-year-old Tibetan nun fleeing to India by Chinese border guards. In his affecting portrait of modern Tibet, Green raises enduring questions about morality and the lengths to which we go to achieve freedom. Self-contained, this audiobook app is perfect for your commute, on a trip, or while relaxing. Based on a library-quality recording, this app was built especially for your iPhone and iPod Touch. No unreadable text, no endless scrolling on a tiny screen. The audio is of higher-than-normal quality, making for a great listening experience that will not tire your ears or grate on your nerves. NOTICE: This app includes the exact same 5-star recording offered elsewhere at much higher prices. It was professionally recorded by Blackstone Audio’s Earphones®-winning narrator, William Hughes. You are not buying yet another amateur or volunteer narration. No clicks, background noises, throat clearing, mispronunciations, tinny voices or monotones will be found here. “By personalizing Namtso’s life and death, Mr. Green has conjured in the flesh an otherwise anonymous figure from Tibet’s shadows.”—(Economist) •EXPERIENCE.

RATING: Suitable for adults who enjoy gripping true stories of murder and intrigue. ___________________ Chinese police are instructed to take any measures necessary to protect the border of Tibet. When a group of climbers witness the murder of a young Tibetan nun who is fleeing to India, two men have a choice: turn a blind eye and preserve their climbing careers or alert the world to the grand scale of human injustice played out daily in Tibet. Intrepid journalist Jonathan Green here investigates the clash of cultures at the rooftop of the world. As he gains entrance to a fascinating network of Tibetan guides and safe houses operating in the name of freedom, investigates extreme mountaineering, and establishes contact with surviving refugees, he offers a rare, affecting portrait of modern Tibet and raises enduring questions about morality.
