The Devil’s Road to Kathmandu – New Edition with Next Chapter

Crime Wave Press Fiction India Nepal Pakistan UK Writer´s Corner

My very first novel, The Devil’s Road to Kathmandu, first published by Dragon’s Mouth Press (HK) in 2006, then republished by Crime Wave Press (HK) in 2013, then published in Spanish by Xplora Editorial in 2014, has got a new and wonderful lease of life.

Next Chapter Publishing are putting out a newly edited edition in ebook, paperback, hardback and audio book format.

The ebook version has just arrived.

In 1976, four friends – Dan, Fred, Tim and Thierry – are on a bus along the hippie trail from London to Kathmandu. But everything is not going according to plan.

After a drug deal goes wrong, the boys barely escape with their lives. Thousands of kilometers, numerous acid trips, accidents, nightclubs and a pair of beautiful Siamese twins later, they finally reach the counter-culture capital of the world, Kathmandu, and Fred disappears with the drug money.

A quarter-century later, mysterious emails invite the other three to pick up their share of the money, and they decide to reunite in Kathmandu. Soon, a trail of kidnapping and murder leads them across the Roof of the World.

With the help of Dan’s backpacking son, a tattooed lady and a Buddhist angel, the ageing hippies try to solve a 25-year old mystery that takes them amongst Himalayan peaks, and towards the inevitable showdown with their past.

In case you have access to Amazon, it would be fantastic if you could leave a short review for the new edition of The Devil’s Road to Kathmandu.

I can also send you a mobi/pdf copy if you want to read it (again). Please leave your contact details in comments.
