Saving Fish From Drowning

by Amy Tan
£10.99   paperback  HarperCollins Publishers (2006)

Saving Fish From Drowning by Amy Tan
Bibi Chen is dead. And she wants to tell you a story.
 
Businesswoman, patron of the arts and socialite Bibi Chen has been killed in mysterious circumstances. Her death may or may not be linked to the disappearance of eleven American tourists in southern Burma. They are 'Following Buddha's Footprints' along the Burma Road, on an expedition dreamt up by Bibi. But when her body is found just days before the departure date, they go without her. Robbed of their guide, it isn't long before the travellers stumble into difficulty with wary tribes and military junta.
 
Seduced by notions of Shangri-La, and oblivious to the cautionary cries from the watchful presence of Bibi, they continue on their ill-fated journey, becoming ever more lost in the heart of the Burma jungle - where a desperate tribe wait for their saviour...

"This novel has all the ingredients for a pulse-racing read... highly entertaining."
(Guardian)
