"This is the story of Kent Richards, D.Sc., a brilliant young New Zealand scientist, who is sent to India on a most secret mission.
In the opening chapters we find him trying to persuade his wife to accompany him, but Clare, though deeply in love with Kent, has always dreaded India - dreaded it because her twin brother was killed in Calcutta some years before during a native uprising.
There follows a novel of great human and dramatic appeal - a chance meting in the hills of Bundi - the alarming mental deterioration of a woman whose mind is gripped by a terrible obsession - a man fighting against loneliness, frustration, and the death-like silence of a vast desert - the heartache of a mother and child, whose happiness, it seems, is irrevocably shattered - intrigue - suspicion - courage - sacrifice - love and hate, all play their part as Kent Richards, Clare, Little John, Marie De Mettre, Pasheeta Zuta, Awab, Professor Anson and other true-to-life characters step from the pages of this extraordinary and fascinating story."
