The Novel

A mysterious riddle encrypted in her father’s WWII diary captivates Rose Jamieson’s curious soul.  When her brother suggests she donate the manuscript to the ‘Death Railway’ Center in Thailand, Rose jumps at the opportunity; she’ll combine her quest to unravel the code with a personal journey of self-discovery. But Rose uncovers more than she bargained for: the Golden Lily, a decades-old political and criminal web of intrigue emerges from the ruins, exposing long submerged ties between Asian Mafia gangs, the CIA and the Japanese Imperial family.  Set against the exotic backdrop of Southeast Asia, Pursuit of the Golden Lily is filled with adventure, romance and political intrigue.
