    schema:reviewBody ""When archaeologists at Angkor Wat discover a book written on gold leaves, the King of Cambodia, the Army, and the UN all want to get their hands on it. The golden book contains the words and wisdom of King Jayavarman VII, the Buddhist ruler who united a war-torn Cambodia in the twelfth century and, together with his enlightened wife, created a kingdom that was a haven of peace and learning." "On its way to the capitol for restoration the golden book is kidnapped along with its guardian, Professor Luc Adnrade. Luckily for Luc, his love and respect for Cambodia have won him many friends, including ex-Khmer Rouge cadre member Map and the young motoboy William. Equally determined to rescue the man they consider their mentor and recover the golden book, Map and William form an unlikely bond...but William is unaware of just how closely Map's violent past affects them all." "The King's Last Song interweaves the ancient tale of Cambodia's greatest king with the modern adventures of Luc, Map and William. It soon becomes clear that William and Map are searching not only for the golden book, but also for Cambodia's future."--BOOK JACKET." ;
