Captain Matthew Hervey -- hero of the critically acclaimed A Close Run Thing -- is sent on a secret mission to war-torn India as the last shots of the battle of Waterloo are still resounding in Europe. His destination is the province of Chintalpore, his mission to make contact with the Raja, glean intelligence, and forge alliances. But the situation he finds is not as he expected. Chintalpore is threatened on all sides. From the north comes the roving band of Pindarees, who regularly make raids into the county. But more alarming still, on the western edge of the province the forces of the Nizam of Haidarabad, Chintalpore's expansionist neighbor, await, backed by their notoriously deadly cannons, the Nizam's Daughters.Hervey finds himself drawn into a conflict as hot and fiery as that which he had so recently left at Waterloo. And without the accustomed support of his dragoon, Hervey must take a stand and decide where his loyalties lie in the coming conflict.
