In Rose of Tibet Davidson adds a native teenage sidekick who has previously explored some of the route he needs to take across the mountains, and who gets our man out of numerous scrapes. The final denouement does not arrive, concerning the protagonist, in that he disappears, but the treasure he brought out in his final escape, while mostly unconscious on various travelling gurneys, is the subject of a reasonable conclusion. The Rose of Tibet is a classic adventure book and thoroughly up to Lionel Davidson's high standards. This was one of his first and it remains as charming and unique as when I first read it about 25 years ago.

I opened my eyes n minutes to seven. There was an awful numbness at the back of my neck and my head seemed to have been crammed forward over my eyes. I lay quietly for a while puzzling why this should be and trying to think where the hell I was, and suddenly remembered and sat up in a panic. I was going home today. I was due at the airport at ten. Three hours. I had been lying on her arm.

SARAND
His first book (1960), and my first Lionel Davidson read - a result of an article seen in the Telegraph recently. I enjoyed it and WILL go on to the next, though as yet I'm not totally won over. The plot - I think because of an array of Czech names used - threw me at times, but I enjoyed the writing style, the gentle humour of the narrative and the story-telling. For a spy novel it was a different kind of read, but not the usual thrill a minute ride that some books provide. I could make a case for it being all the better for that, a throwback to Graham Greene whose writing I've previously enjoyed. Three and half stars would have been a fairer assessment of the novel, I think, but i have been left with a desire to sample more of Davidson's writing so that alone raises the book's profile for me.

Sorry, thumbs down. Unlikable, flippant protagonist. The whole thing with duplicate guide books and atomic secrets? I'm still not sure if he was smuggling something in or out. And was the girlfriend part of it or not? This is no Kolymsky Heights.

Lionel Davidson is a gifted writer. I had read his book that was set in Siberia and enjoyed that one. This story has lots of good surprises and a very interesting main character. It held my interest so I read it very quickly while traveling.

A worthy winner of the Gold Dagger. Written during the cold war, this mystery shows how innocents can be drawn into the sinister world of espionage. The writing is engaging, and I found myself reading it very quickly. The descriptions of Eastern Bloc Prague and its people was a highlight. No longer a well known book, it certainly deserves to be more widely read.

Lionel Davidson can have his readers accepting areposterous situation, as in The Rose of Tibet, as not only logical
but inevitable. By comprison with his later books, Kolinsky Heights in particular., The Night of Wenceslaus is a model of logic and consistency. Doesn't every hero hide from the secret police in a Prague boiler room?

I think Long Way to Shiloh and Making Good Again are more daringly original,, but this early effort, with its deligjhtfully harum-scarum hero, is a great adventure story You would have to go to Stevenson or John Buchan for an equal. I miss Lionel Davidson!
