Stans By Me: A whirlwind tour through Central Asia – Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan

Stans By Me by Ged Gillmore

Ged Gillmore likes to think of himself as James Bond. Or Indiana Jones. Or a suave and daring hybrid of both. As he flicks through his world atlas, he pictures himself infiltrating enemy lines, uncovering ancient artefacts, and strapping himself in for white-knuckle flights over dusty arid landscapes. So the very thought of joining an organised bus tour is enough to make our intrepid traveler dry retch and shudder.

But join one he must if he’s to survive multiple border crossings on his mission to discover the mysteries of Central Asia in only three weeks. Follow our rugged Indiana Bond as he clambers aboard a bus with an unlikely group of characters thrown together by exotic circumstances for a whirlwind tour through the five ‘Stans – Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan.

Along the way you’ll encounter yurt erections, bullet trains and enemy travel agents. You’ll learn how a baby’s first steps are celebrated in Kyrgyzstan. You’ll become acquainted with the life-and-death importance of etiquette in a Khan’s palace. And you’ll be gently reminded that people – even those on a seemingly boring bus tour – are rarely what they seem.

Murdoch’s doing just fine, thanks for not asking. He’s dealing drugs for a professional crime syndicate in Sydney and saving for a house by the sea. But what does he think life is – a fairy tale?

As the syndicate puts pressure on him, Murdoch is cornered by an equally formidable foe – the Australian Tax Office who are demanding an explanation for his sizeable cash income.

When she asks him to investigate the mystery of her niece’s disappearance, Murdoch grabs what he thinks is a golden opportunity to outrun the syndicate. But his arrival in the missing girl’s small coastal home town causes an unexpected stir and the reluctant PI soon realises his troubles are only just beginning.
