Graham Joyce

travels to an enthralling, suspense-charged landscape in this hallucinatory novel of a father's quest to save his daughter — without destroying himself.

Dan Innes has received shattering news from the British Embassy in Bangkok: his daughter, Charlie, whom he hasn't seen or spoken to in two years, has been imprisoned in a Thai jail for drug smuggling. Angry, terrified, seething with reprimands and questions, Dan leaves for Thailand. But the jail at Chiang Mai marks the beginning of his search rather than the end. Following the faintest of trails up into the lawless, dangerous mountain region near Myanmar, where opium grows abundantly, Dan must retrace Charlie's steps — and brave the same traps that have swallowed her...on a terrifying mission of self-discovery, blind faith, and salvation.

Synopsis:

Dan Innes hasn't spoken with his daughter, Charlie, for two years. The first news he's had of her is a call from the British embassy in Thailand, informing him that his daughter is in a Chiang-Mai prison on charges of drug smuggling. Dan's shock and anger is rivaled only by a primal desire to rescue his estranged child — and within days he journeys to the strange, mysterious land. He arrives at the prison — questions and reprimands running through his head — but his visit is inconclusive, and he soon finds himself following the faintest of trails in the lawless mountain region near the Myanmar border where opium grows in abundance.
