Content descriptions

General Note: Includes "Book ends: Discussion guide (pages 371-374).
Includes excerpt: The infidel stain (pages 375-386).
Bibliography, etc. Note: Includes bibliographical references.
Summary, etc.: India, 1837: William Avery is a young soldier with few prospects except rotting away in campaigns in India; Jeremiah Blake is a secret political agent gone native, a genius at languages and disguises, disenchanted with the whole ethos of British rule, but who cannot resist the challenge of an unresolved mystery. What starts as a wild goose chase for this unlikely pair—trying to track down a missing writer who lifts the lid on Calcutta society—becomes very much more sinister as Blake and Avery get sucked into the mysterious Thuggee cult and its even more ominous suppression.
