This week Robert Reflects with

"Sad Departure From Nepal"
Sad Departure From Nepal
My time in Nepal has been very enjoyable and I am really sad to be leaving this wonderful country tomorrow.

The trek in the Himalayas was an experience that I will remember for the rest of my life. Although I was ill prepared, both physically and mentally, the locals and fellow-travellers I met along the way made it a very special week. Those people, along with the incredible surroundings, will stay in my mind longer than all the hard work and effort it took me to climb those steep mountainsides.

After another few days and a magical time in Pokhara, I returned to Kathmandu and have spent my remaining time here in the company of Australian fellow-travellers Geoff, Kim and Brom, who I teamed up with after the trek. We have had a great laugh together although the atmosphere in the last couple of days has become a little strained. You’ll understand what I mean if you read my diary. 

Since leaving England over three months ago, I have been out of touch with what has been going on in the outside world most of the time. Whilst here I visited the reading room at the British embassy where they had a good selection of newspapers and magazines. Not much seems to have changed although I did find out that the Pope had been shot at, but thankfully survived.

I’ve stayed here longer than I planned because I am still waiting for a letter from Rita to let me know whether she is coming to India or not. In the meantime I have decided to head east towards Darjeeling, which is really in the wrong direction if Rita does decide to come. Bombay is on the other side of India. I have sent an aerogramme and a postcard asking her to write to Darjeeling with an answer.

When I set out on this trip I was intending to keep just a few notes on places I visited and things that I did. Keeping the diary up to date has now become a part of my travelling day. Sometimes I get a little fed up writing it all the time but I also appreciate the routine and being able to express my thoughts and frustrations.

All through this trip I have been sending segments of the diary to Jan, a good friend of mine in Frankfurt. It gives her an insight into another traveller’s world, which she seems to enjoy. If the diary gives pleasure to at least one person then it’s all worth the effort.

My ticket is booked for the night bus leaving tomorrow afternoon. The time here has flown by but the limitations of visas and money mean, sadly, that I need to move on again. I have loved my time in Nepal and this country will live on in my memory for many years to come.

A Lucky Escape

The road out of Kathmandu was, as always, rough. We were rewarded on the other side as we descended by the most beautiful sunset. The whole sky was aglow and the blazing red sun caused fantastic patterns around the clouds while the mountains seemed pitch black against the brilliance of the sky.

Shortly after sunset I took a Valium to relax me as the whole journey looked like being along rough roads all night. Twenty minutes later, as I was dozing, we almost had a nasty accident. There were a Danish couple sitting in front of me who explained what had happened.

The whole road to the border town of Kakarvita was narrow and our coach had tried overtaking a truck, which hadn’t moved over enough to let us pass. As a consequence our bus ploughed into the grass verge on the right-hand side of the road. We all got out of the bus as numerous people, helped by a tow-rope and a truck, managed to get the coach back onto the road.

I had a look at the skid marks on the road and the impressions made by the wheels in the grass. Another yard at the front or as little as six inches further to the side and the bus would have ended up in a river, after going down a steep embankment of thirty or forty feet. A lucky escape!

It seemed a fairly normal occurrence though and we were soon on our way again, with the driver still driving along the same way as before, which could be reckless and dangerous. We made a stop at 9 p.m. for a drink and I also had a nice joint with Mike and Chris, the English versions of their Danish names, before returning to the bus.

Dr Dude: A Michaela McPherson Mystery

A New Series Starter 
by Best Selling Mystery Thriller 
Author Judith Lucci
Hey everybody, I want to welcome you to my new series, Michaela McPherson Mysteries. The series is set in Richmond where Irish born Michela (Mic) McPherson, a former Richmond homicide detective her retired police dog Angel, and best friend and side kick 82 year old Italian Countess Dorothy Borghase are up to their ears in solving crime that requires quick thinking and ingenious solutions.

A young woman disappears after a job interview at a well-known dentist’s office in Richmond and Mic, Dorothy and Detective Slade O’Brien join forces to solve the crime…a crime with long reaching tentacles that spans continents and generations.
"Please don't do this to me. Why are you hurting me,” the young 
voice sobbed. “I don't know who you are!” 
A large hand with dirty, stained fingernails grabbed her shoulder roughly. “Shut up,” he growled as he shook her ferociously until her teeth chattered. 
Her tattooed abductor terrified her as she focused on the snake tattoo on his hand. “Just let me go, and I promise I won't tell anyone," the young woman whimpered. “I promise.” 
“Shut up, or I’ll really hurt you,” the savage voice promised as he slapped her face and slammed her into the side of the vehicle. He shoved her again and bent her body like a pretzel. His body covered hers, making it impossible for anyone to see her from three sides. 
The young woman's voice raised to feverish pitch as another person pushed her into the trunk of her car. The monster pinned her arms behind her head and shoved her elbow against the spare tire. She winced as an excruciating, burning pain sent stinging shocks into her head. She cried uncontrollably and could not stop shaking. 
"Shut your yammer,” the man hissed softly, his face so close to her blindfold she could smell his foul breath. “If you don't, it’ll be much worse for you," he warned as he loomed over her, making her feel small and defenseless. She couldn't see him through her translucent blindfold but sensed he had dark hair. 
"Please, please, please just let me go. My father will give you a reward. He has a lot of money." As she made the promise, her teeth chattered violently. Tears streamed down her face, making her cough. She was unable to brush them away. 
The man laughed a slow, evil sound that caused chill bumps on her arms. "Your father doesn't have enough money to stop what we have planned for you, not nearly enough, so shut your pretty mouth and be quiet before I put your lights off." 
A wave of fresh sobs exploded from the terrified woman as she lay in the trunk of the car. Her body shuddered from head to toe, and she couldn’t control the tears streaming from her face. 
The noise infuriated her assailant as he glowered at his helpless victim. A feeling of euphoria settled over him. He loved watching helpless women squirm. He shook her head and pounded it against the trunk of the car. 
"I told you to shut up. If you don’t stop screaming, I'm gonna cut your voice box out. Do you understand?" 
Allison nodded and coughed. 
“Be quiet.” Allison heard a female voice speak for the first time. “I’d hate to mess up your pretty face,” she said in a singsong voice that frightened the young woman more than the snarl and guttural voice of the man. 
A wave of fresh sobs exploded from the scared woman, as she lay helpless in the trunk of the car. 
She thrashed around wildly. Where’d the woman come from? She tried to see her through her blindfold but she couldn’t. For some reason, she was more frightened of the woman. Her body shook, and her teeth chattered. 
“I hope the bitch doesn’t mess herself up,” the man commented. 
The woman stared at him. “You know what to do, so just do it.” 
The man hesitated for an instant, and the woman pushed him aside and glared at the helpless young captive. 
That was when the lights went out for Allison Massie. The woman stepped back with an evil smile on her face and murmured, “Well, I guess I shut her up.” 
Despite the choke hold, the woman glared at him defiantly. 
The tattooed man let her go and pushed her against the car. “Get back in the office and do damage control,” he snarled, “and don’t ever cross me again.” He jumped in the car and headed west.

A superb read for all lovers of outstanding crime thrillers.
By Enrico Grafitti on February 17, 2016
Queen of NOLA Medical Thrillers, Judith Lucci, starts a new series with ‘The Case of Dr. Dude” and it has all the promise of being a new bestseller for her avid fans. Set in Richmond, Virginia, the series features an ex-cop turned Private Investigator, Michaela McPherson, whose informal partnership with an ageing Italian noblewoman, Countess Dorothy (Dottie) Borghese, and backed-up by her retired police dog Angel, make for an intriguing and heart-warming trio that tackle the most brutal of crimes. In this first novel of the series the issue is the kidnapping and selling of young girls into the white slave trade.
The author’s impeccable research shows on every page as her protagonists delve into the mystery of the missing women and take on the Russian mafia in this fast-paced thriller. The skill with which Lucci has placed her readers on the streets of New Orleans in her medical thrillers is present here too and we quickly feel at home in Richmond, as the tale unfolds.
The story is solid; the villains despicable, and the protagonists people you will instantly empathise with in this complex tale. Mic and Dottie find themselves in a race against the clock to save the life of the victims and you will find your heart thumping with excitement as the story barrels along to its finale. A superb read for all lovers of outstanding crime thrillers.
5.0 out of 5 stars
Excellent read

Another Winning Series!
Judith Lucci has done it again! She has created another great series filled with unique and interesting characters, great description and a complex plot with twists, turns and surprises. Michaela (Mic) McPherson is a retired homicide detective from Richmond, Virginia (Lucci’s home town) whose best friend is Dottie, an aging Italian Countess who, along with Mic’s ‘retired’ police dog, Angel, solve difficult crimes. As always, Lucci’s book is impeccably researched and peppered with suspense and intrigue. The trio in this book have attacked the global issue of human sex trafficking as Mic, Dottie and Angel tussle with an aberrant dentist, his crazed assistant and the Russian mob to rescue a young woman who disappeared after a job interview at Dr. Dude’s office.
Judith Lucci again has penned an amazing page-turner in the first book that is as.exciting and memorable as Alex Destephano medical thrillers. I cannot wait for the next Mic McPherson mystery.
