Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0896103692, Paperback)In Ming dynasty China, a magnificent robe was made for a Taoist monk of the Polar Star sect. It was said that if the robe were taken from its home in China's Middle Kingdom, disaster would follow it wherever it went. This warning was not enough to stop bandits from stealing the robe, which was more stunning than anyone had ever seen. Now, over four hundred years later, the robe has fallen into the hands of Adam Mariner, a devout Catholic living on the Hawaiian island of Maui. Convinced that he can sell the robe to someone who will return it to its home in China, Adam begins devoting his time - and his money - to the robe. He soon finds that selling the robe is not as easy as he thought it would be, and when strange things start happening to him, and he finds his religious faith wavering, he begins to wonder, Is this robe really cursed? Edgar-winning Scott C.S. Stone has written a gripping saga of one man's journey to overcome his own demons even as he is chased by demons from the past. This work of fiction was inspired by actual events, and the golden Taoist robe, the Pei-chi Tao-pao, is real.
