Eva Gatsby has often wondered about her grandfather Lawrence's past, and exactly what happened to him in Burma during the Second World War.
But it is only when Eva's job as an antiques dealer suddenly requires a trip to Mandalay that Lawrence finally breaks his silence and asks her to return a mysterious artefact of his own - a chinthe - to its rightful owner. As Eva arrives in Burma her mission soon proves dangerously complicated, and the treasure she is guarding becomes the centre of a scandal that will have far-reaching consequences. Caught between loyalty and integrity, Eva is determined to find the truth about her grandfather's past, of her own family origins, and of the red-eyed chinthe itself - enigmatic symbol of the riches of Mandalay.

Brilliant story, beautifully written and narrated. I have read another two of Rosanna Ley's books and enjoyed them but this is definitely the best.
The way the story moved from one decade to another with such ease and the twists and turns in the adventure.
Both narrated extremely well with such feeling fort their characters.
Yes, but to pinpoint it would give too much away about the plot!
Good story - great narration
Straightforward story bought alive by great narration
I've an interest in Burma and this has piqued it further
Nothing ! Great performances, quality characters - change of narrator at points was a little confusing
Ms Duncan yet again demonstrated great range of characters, excellent pronunciation, timing and pace
