Travel journalist Jamie Lafferty lands his first big assignment when he’s sent to cover a 5,000 mile overland rally from Budapest to Murghab, Tajikistan. The plan? Buy a used car in Hungary, drive it across Central Asia and sell it in Dushanbe.
Like all great adventures, the plan goes south in a hurry when Jamie’s route is blocked by border guards and his team is forced to find an entirely new route to one of the world’s most remote towns. Along the way, they find themselves traveling through ancient lands along the silk road.
