Bone Mountain is #3 in Eliot Pattison's Inspector Shan series, and as in all of these, Tibet is the main character. The story of the Tibetan people, and their struggle to retain their world in the face of China's determination to subjugate the country and its residents, and strip its natural resources to fuel China's expansion is heartbreaking - but Pattison always leaves you with a little bit of hope that maybe - just maybe - the country will manage to deflect the invaders' efforts.

Bone Mountain like all of the series takes you into a world and life the complete opposite of anything most of us have experienced. And the exploration of Shan's journey into Tibetan Buddhism may help the reader explore his or her own spirituality and relationship with the natural world.

If you're going to get involved in this series, start from the beginning - it's important to follow Shan's journey toward enlightenment and his understanding of how important Tibet is to all of our continued well-being.
