Following the reissue of 'Kolymsky Heights' comes a most welcome new edition of one of Davidson's most enchanting titles, 'The Rose of Tibet'. In the tradition of H. Rider Haggard and long before Indiana Jones came on the scene, Davidson authored this thrilling tale of romance and derring-do in 1962 and it has not dated one iota. When a filmmaker disappears in the Himalayas, his brother is determined to find him and ventures blindly into forbidden territory in the face of an impending Chinese invasion. Here he stumbles across a lost monastery and a hidden treasure guarded by a mysterious and beautiful woman with whom he inevitably falls in love. With a cast of unforgettable characters, poignant romance, non-stop thrills this is an old-school thriller that almost feels perfect and the memory of which had remained with me for decades, as did Haggard's immortal 'She'. In its day it was praised by Graham Greene and this volume is effusively introduced by Anthony Horowitz. How could I dare contradict them? Rush out and buy it. ~ Maxim Jakubowski

For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.

I 'Lovereading' because it lets me see what new books are around with a detailed synopsis and readers' reviews.

Judith Sharp

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
