India. The peak of British Imperial power.
Something is stirring in the heart of the empire.
As Her Imperial Majesty’s Viceroy in India decides to travel to Peshawar to meet the boy Maharajah of Mysore, it becomes clear that he has arrived in a city troubled by religious unrest.
Captain James Ogilvie of the 114th Queen’s Own Royal Strathspeys finds himself in the middle of it all.
Disguising himself as a native, he must navigate the treacherous streets of Peshawar to find the one responsible for stirring up trouble between the Mohammedan and Hindu – the Mullah from Kashmir.
And religious differences aren’t Ogilvie’s only concerns – Tsar Nicholas of Russia is massing his troops on the Afghan border.
Time is ticking for Britain.
As a last resort to restore peace to the Raj, the Viceroy must travel with the boy Maharajah to Srinagar to confer with the most influential men of the country. But with the meeting taking place during an important Hindu festival, its failure is not an option for Britain.
Will Captain Ogilvie be able to bring the viceregal train safely into Kashmir, stop the Mullah and help prevent the collapse of the Raj?
