Based on a true story

Some 2500 years ago, Buddha’s remains were gathered in several golden urns and shared amongst his followers in 84 000 stupas (holy burials) across the world.  In December 2013, The golden urn believed to have contained Buddha’s hair, fingers, and ashes, mysteriously disappeared from a mountain shrine in Cambodia.  The circumstances were extremely suspicious.

  Due to its religious magnitude, the Buddhist monks insisted the Cambodian government launch a manhunt for the perpetrators in the hope of recovering the stolen sacred relic.  Doubts circled about its authenticity, casting suspicion on the Royal family that the real one was still out there somewhere.  More details on this real life historic event inside the book.

A recent family holiday in Phuket, Thailand was the inspiration for this novel.
