Overview

Amidst the chaos of the Tibetan Uprising in March 1959, monks loyal to their God-King fought to keep treasured artefacts from the clutches of invading Chinese soldiers. Four horse-drawn carts full of gold and precious jewels left Lhasa in the wake of the fleeing Dalai Lama. Three carts were captured by pursuing soldiers. The fourth cart escaped, but appeared to vanish off the face of the earth.

The legend of The Fourth Cart became a well-known tale circulating the bars of Patpong in Bangkok. One man even claimed to be the sole surviving witness to its fate, and would show listeners an enormous ruby which he claimed to be part of the treasures still lying buried in Tibet.

One listener found the allure of buried treasure too strong to resist. Nick Price, a cocky young East End petty criminal on the lam saw it as his salvation.

And yet twenty years later he would gladly give every penny of the treasure away for the chance to hold his wife in his arms one more time. 

The Tibetan Heist is Part 3 of the Fourth Cart trilogy.

Meet the Author

I lived in Thailand for ten years. I worked for a while as a fashion model, a television extra, a news presenter for Radio Thailand and a teacher before securing a permanent job in the Bangkok office of an international accounting firm.

In Bangkok, I lived in King Mansion in Sathorn Road, a rather notorious hotel where police and immigration department raids were not uncommon. We even had a murder. Many of the hotel's residents were eccentric; many sought the anonymity only a cheap hotel could offer. It was a fun place to live in; the stories that could be in the coffee shop were quite bizarre and usually outrageous.

Thailand is a place where farang (white caucasions) often encounter romance or passion. It may be the heat, or it may just be that they are relaxed away from their own countries. My novels reflect the bizarre stories I came across whilst living there, along with a liberal dose of romance and passion.
