When Tom Cutter hires Constantine Shaklin as an engineer in his air-freight business, he little realises the extraordinary gifts of his new recruit. Shaklin possesses a religious power which inspires everyone he meets to a new faith and hope for humanity. As Cutter's business grows across Asia, so does Shaklin's fame, until he is widely regarded as a unifying deity. Though he struggles to believe Shaklin is indeed divine, Cutter too finds solace in his friend's teachings, and commits to passing on his message.

    " Wonderful story about England and the Middle East and a tale of mysticism "

    " Wonderful read, in Shute's methodical style. Yes, it gets a little spiritual, but that rings true. I had an engineer friend who worked on projects in east Africa. The town used to gather in silence to watch him practice tai chi in the morning, because they thought he must be a holy man. "

    " One of nevil Shute's very best, right up there with "A Town Like Alice" and "In the Wet". While the story takes place in the world of men and avaition, as is the case with so much that Shute wrote, it also ventures quite far into the realm of the spiritual and the profound impact that exposure to middle east and south asian cultures can have upon "western" man. "

    " Nevil Shute (On the Beach) is a master story teller. While the tale begins slowly, it develops into a masterful story very worthwhile. "
