Brown Bag: "Skull Mantra"

Tuesday, October 20, 2015 - 12:00pm to 1:00pm

Winner of the Edgar Award for Best First Novel, this culturally nuanced story by Eliot Pattison is set in a Tibetan work gulag holding Buddhist monks and a few Chinese political prisoners. After a grisly discovery near the prison, a disgraced police inspector from Beijing is compelled by the local party boss to investigate. In his search for the truth, he finds himself caught between local beliefs, brutal Communist Party policies, and a nearby American mining project.

Books are available at Dole Branch one month before the discussion.
