In Water Touching Stone the seuel to the internationally acclaimed The Skull Mantra Shan Tao Yun is cloistered in a remote Tibetan sanctuary when he receives shattering news A teacher revered by the oppressed has been found slain and one by. In this his second novel featuring Inspector Shan a Han Chinese political exile in Tibet Pattison moves from southern Tibet the setting for The Skull Mantra to the far northwest of China to the lands of the Kazakh and Uighur Moslem clans The action begins in media res Pattison immediately creating a situation of grave danger as Shan and his Tibetan companions are sent to solve the murder of a teacher and her pupils Buddhist and Taoist myths and philosophy are central to the narrative as they are central in the lives of the characters Tension is thick not only because of the dangers the companions face from others but also because of the suspicions and prejudices among themselves Pattison creates an ambiance of a culture and geography utterly foreign to our own a way of looking at and experiencing life that contrasts greatly to that of contemporary Western society Pattison has created a gripping story involving contemporary history and ancient cultures all contributing to make an engrossing mystery in a very foreign context Almost continually I find myself wondering about the accuracy of the history and politics that he portrays I know little about the politics and peoples of Tibet and especially Xinjiang and it would be easy for me to assume that what Pattison describes is factually accurate It would also be easy for me to erroneously assume such accuracy and for the author to be writing what in effect is a propaganda document and so I must be alert and aware that such is a possibility and a danger One can enjoy a good story for its own sake even while suspending judgment about factual veracityHere are two uotations from the book that I especially liked“Maybe humans existjust to keep virtue alive and to pass it on to someone else”‘The great barriers to understandingare material possessions which only build hunger for and time which pushes so many through life fearful that they will miss something if they slow as though if they are uick enough they can change their destiny’There were many characters of importance in this novel and it was not until the end that I was sure that I was keeping them all straight and the plot was sufficiently convoluted that it was only in the last couple of chapters that I could discern its details But most of all I wanted another glimpse of the Tibetan people their culture and traditions and this book was a most satisfactory depiction
