It’s The Map of Lost Memories by Kim Fay and read by Karyn O’Bryant, out from Random House Audio. Here’s what they have to say for themselves:
In 1925 Shanghai, a city of malleable ethics where nothing is what it seems, Irene Blum arrives to convince scholar and temple-robber Simone Merlin to help her find a set of scrolls believed to contain the lost history of Cambodia’s ancient Khmer empire. United by a deep hunger for the priceless scrolls, the women commit an act of violence that shocks them both. But as they flee Shanghai, they begin to realize that their hidden motives for finding the scrolls are strongly opposed. En route to Cambodia, they are joined by three men, including Irene’s lover and the dying Henry Simms, the Svengali who raised Irene and sent her to the Orient. Together they head for the jungle, where each discovery reveals that their pasts are entwined in ways they never could have imagined. Opposed by government officials and a local tribe enlisted to protect the country’s great treasure, they fight their way toward their goal, where Irene learns that finding the scrolls means not only solving the puzzle of the Khmer history, but also discovering the history of her own life.
