Listeners are transported back to a mysterious India of 1837, which is almost wholly governed by the East India Company. The recently arrived and indebted Company officer William Avery finds himself paired with the unconventional Jeremiah Blake on a mission to discover the fate of the acclaimed writer Xavier Mountstuart. Their uneasy partnership and small band of native soldiers are given authentic voice through the judicious narration of Alex Wyndham. His narration highlights the bright enthusiasm of Avery, which contrasts sharply with the world-weariness of Blake, a man who has seen too much and feels greater comfort in the company of locals. Wyndham immerses the listener in their quest and developing relationship, while convincingly delivering both native and British accents.
