THE YELLOW TURBAN

William Brooke is sent to Pakistan by-presumably- an archaeological concern- to search for his former friend, Roy FinLey, an erratic, magnetic figure- now known to be somewhere in hiding. An intermediary contact does not materialize- and when he does- is murdered; Brooke is pursued by a bearer in a saffron turban, attacked by fever, and finally makes his way to the mountains to interrupt the security Roy has found in seclusion, interpret the true meaning of his mission... Not the shattering suspense of eat Not The Hones or The Fugitive Eyr. but the dusty, shoddy montage- from Karachi to the hills- is effectively oppressive.
