Two were monks investigating Tibetan Buddhism- two others were more worldly clerics hoping to manipulate Tibetan politics. Of the laymen, two were spies, one was a soldier of fortune and a fourth was the author of a three-volume adventure story.

The present book, based on research into Japanese sources, recounts this virtually unknown episode in the history of travel and exploration. Berrys previous books include A Stranger in Tibet (1989) and Japanese Agent in Tibet (1990).
