At the turn of the century a man named J. Milton Hayes wrote a set of verses called THE GREEN EYE OF THE LITTLE YELLOW GOD. The verses tell the story of a young British officer named Carew, who steals the Green Eye, a priceless emerald, from a templeMoreAt the turn of the century a man named J. Milton Hayes wrote a set of verses called THE GREEN EYE OF THE LITTLE YELLOW GOD.

The verses tell the story of a young British officer named Carew, who steals the Green Eye, a priceless emerald, from a temple in the mountains north of Katmandu, Nepal. The emerald was to be a gift from him to the daughter of the colonel of his regiment, with whom he is in love. The verses then tell us that the priests of the temple follow Carew back to his barracks, and kill him.Six-book author Peter Byrne’s daring and challenging story, THE GREEN EYE, tells us a different tale.

Carew does not die. He is dismissed from his regiment and leaves Katmandu and, taking the Eye with him, returns to England. Now, many years later and a distinguished member of the British aristocracy, he finds his conscience bothered by his youthful folly and decides to return the Eye to it rightful owners.He secretly employs a professional courier and adventurer named Wildman for the mission.

But word leaks out and when Wildman is traveling through India, he finds himself pursued by a group of men who are a remnant of the Hindu thugs of old. Their leader is Vask, a powerful and ruthless gangster who will do anything to get the priceless emerald, including the use of his monolithic and terrifying brother, a mentally retarded giant, to torture, mutilate and kill anyone who gets in his way.At Lord Carew’s suggestion, Wildman takes with him a tough little Sherpa and on the way across India he is also joined by a beautiful young Australian woman, Carew’s granddaughter.

At first, a confirmed bachelor, he wants nothing to do with her. Then, slowly, a love affair develops as the three battle the thugs through a series of brutal fights, kidnappings, torture, car chases and shoot-outs, to a deadly finale in the mountains.The story begins in an exclusive club in London and sweeps on from there through Lord Carew’s castle in Scotland to the seething city of Bombay.

It includes an interlude at the encampment of a famous Indian woman bandit and then races north to the ancient and mysterious city of Catmandoo, the dark side of which few modern day travelers know. Based on the author’s own experiences, the story encompasses murder and mayhem, treachery and deceit, courage and cowardice, love and passion, torture and violent death, all set against the background of the endless battle between good and evil.

Methodically documented by the author’s extraordinary photographs, THE GREEN EYE is required reading for all who are stirred by adventure and the dangerous but exhilarating game of pitting ones wits against a seemingly invincible foe.
