Journalist Charlotte Drummond is wealthy, educated, rational—the rare independent woman in 1880s London, center of the changing world of the British Empire. When her young cousin Amanda is kidnapped in far-away India, Charlotte uses all her resources to put together a team with special skills to help rescue Amanda. Advanced technology is a must. As is travel across the world. Meanwhile strange forces from far-flung quarters of the globe threaten to overwhelm every effort. Some seem to come from beyond the material world. Some are quite rationally evil. Yet even as Charlotte strains to defeat the forces she can see, her nightmares prefigure the terror of incomprehensible violence--violence, and a loathsome man in a secret cave in the remote mountains of the Hindu Kush. And still more, the tigers.
