The Washington Post - Patrick Anderson: Pattison's plot is complex, at times bewildering, although he does wrap things up neatly at the end. In truth, however, Prayer of the Dragon is less notable for its murder mystery than for its sensitive and highly detailed portrait of two cultures in conflict?This novel taught me more about Tibet?modern and ancient?than I had managed to learn elsewhere over the years. It's not a novel for everyone, but for the patient reader who cares about Tibet and Buddhism and deplores their treatment at the hands of the Chinese, it's a powerful picture of courage in the face of tyranny.
