Max Devlin is an ex-Gurkha officer down on his luck. When his livelihood and business are expropriated by a corrupt government, he finds himself accepting an unlikely proposal: to lead a mysterious group of foreign academics into the remotest valleys of Nepal.
Devlin and his Sherpas must guide this unlikely team to complete their mission before the first monsoon breaks, bringing with it flash floods and dangerous landslides. But it soon becomes apparent these are no ordinary academics ??high in the majestic mountains, tensions escalate when Devlin realizes his clients are in fact conducting a clandestine operation. Events take on a sinister dimension when a young Sherpa disappears and is found dead the next morning, close to the camp. The assignment is compromised, and Devlin's team must rush to complete their mission, with the Chinese army in hot pursuit.
At the heart of the expedition lies a shocking secret that will rock the spiritual and geopolitical foundations of the Himalayas. And it's Devlin's job to hang on for as long as he can to complete his mission at the 'roof of the world'. From the steamy nightclubs of Calcutta to the perilous icy rock faces of the highest mountain passes, The Dharma Expedient is a breathtaking journey into one of the most beautiful, mystical ??and corrupt ??places on earth.
