The time is set after the Dalai Lama dies and his reincarnation is being sought. Everyone is interested in a boy born near Uluru. Dangerous and determined characters converge on a tiny community in this central Australian desert area, near the monolithic rock.
The plot involves suspense, hidden motives, a plan that goes horribly wrong, and yet, is perhaps divinely all to plan after all. A good and satisfying read.
The characters are easy to identify with and believable. This is one of those books where I could put myself into as a hidden character and get lost in the adventure. I totally enjoyed this book.
Another great thing about "Military Orders" is it proves you DO NOT need vulgar language, explicit sex and graphic violence to have a great story. You just need an author who knows how to tell a tale. Great job Martin Roth.
I highly recommend "Military Orders" by Martin Roth.
A Christian missionary has joined forces with a Christian mega-church from South Korea that has under-written a religious order that uses "whatever means necessary" to rescue persecuted Christians whose lives are in imminent danger. (Said missionary is knocked off for knowing too much in the first few pages!) In this case, the church leaders have backed a wild idea: to switch out the Dahli Lama and substitute a child who has been baptized a Christian on the misguided notion the child, being Christian, would be able to influence the world!
This struggle is played out by some standout main characters in the heat of the Outback:
* Rafa, the authority on "Spiritual Art," the rebellious and somewhat disgruntled Christian brother of the dead missionary who has been sent by his mother and sister-in-law to Dharamsala to investigate his brother's death
* Sunhee, the drop dead gorgeous former North Korean, now a member of the South Korean mega-church and Tae-Kwon-Do practitioner sent to Australia to protect the substituted child from potential kidnappers or killers
* Tenzin, the armed and dangerous wanna-be Buddhist monk become assassin in pursuit of the new Dahli Lama for reasons of his own who is working in concert with the Chinese authorities who want to control the new Dahli Lama for reasons of their own!Read more ›
Rather than clear Matt's name, it's not long before Harel is attacked and also suspected of being involved in the smuggling of antiquities. The police tell him to leave the country or be arrested. He leaves, but now he must clear his name, too. The only thing significant he learned before being booted out was that Matt had been asking questions about the reincarnation of the Dalai Lama. (The book is set in the future, two years after the death of the Dalai Lama.) Based on what Harel had learned from a former student who was now studying to be a Tibetan Buddhist priest, the reincarnation was expected to happen in Australia.
Harel goes to Australia, along with many other characters, both good and bad, and the action gets more intense. The story involves Chinese, Korean, Australian, American and Indian characters. We get a look at Buddhism, militaristic Christians, the making of a Bollywood movie and Aboriginal art. Characters include Buddhist priests, Christian missionaries, academics and students. I enjoyed learning details about a variety of subjects, but mostly I liked following the characters along the emotional roller coaster on the way to the conclusion.
