The Thugs & a CourtesanMeander through 1819 India with Firangia as he covers villages, jungles
and small towns while on a journey of romance, devotion, crime and
deception. But there is someone always watching over. This is
pre-railways India, when merchants travel in caravans, noblemen with
escorts, and no road is secure.
On his way home after a trade expedition, Firangia’s path is crossed by
the beautiful Chanda Bai, traveling with a small party of guards. Though
a warrior, she wishes to travel under his protection. Should he decline?
Read about grandiose ambitions pitted against petty schemes, love and
deceit, and what in our modern times is termed ‘evil’. You will find in
this intellectually ambitious, meticulously researched, action-packed
historical fiction a broader, age-independent significance.
