500    "A novel"--Cover. 
520    Three men race against time to take possession of a sacred
       5,000-year-old Buddhist sculpture: Khalid, a leading 
       Pakistani antiquities dealer, arranges for the illegal 
       importation of the statue from neighbouring Afghanistan. 
       Ghalib, a wealthy art collector with political aspirations,
       has purchased the statue for his private collection. Adeel,
       a highly recommended ex-military officer, is hired by 
       Khalid to transport the sculpture to its final 
       destination. When Adeel first views the statue in a cave 
       in Bamiyan -- known as "the place of shining light" -- he 
       has a profound spiritual reaction and decides to steal the
       sculpture for himself. When Khalid and Ghalib realize 
       their prized possession is missing, they conspire to do 
       whatever it takes to have it returned -- before it's lost 
       forever.
