The Place of Shining LightBook - 2015
The story of three men in pursuit of a stolen Buddhist statue. Set against the backdrop of India, Pakistan, and Afghanistan -- three countries riddled with political chaos and seared by terrorist activity -- this is a riveting and timely story of art, war, greed and spirituality. Adeel has a reliable reputation and has never failed to execute an assignment, but when he first sees the statue in a cave in the town of Bamiyan -- known as the place of shining light -- he has a profound spiritual reaction and decides to steal the sculpture for himself and go into hiding. When Khalid and Ghulam realize Adeel has disappeared with their prized possession they conspire to do whatever it takes to have the statue returned.
