Summary
A heart-rending narrative that moves from the Himalayas to the Middle East to Houston and culminates in an epic court battle, this is a story of death and life - of the war in Iraq, the killings of the twelve Nepalese, a journalist determined to uncover the truth, and a trio of human rights lawyers dedicated to finding justice. At its heart is one unforgettable young woman, Kamala Magar, who found the courage to face the influential men who sent her husband to his death - a model of strength hope, bravery, and an unbreakable spirit who reminds us of the power we all have to make a difference
