The Tiger and the Ruby

The Tiger and the Ruby
By Kief Hillsbery

In 1841, Nigel Halleck left Britain to become a clerk in the East India Company. He served in the colonial administration for eight years before leaving his post, eventually disappearing in the mountain kingdom of Nepal, never to be heard from again.A century-and-a-half later, Kief Hillsbery, Nigel's nephew many times removed, sets out on a quest to discover what happened to his ancestor. Through beguiling prose, he transports us to a time and place deep in the heart of British and Indian history, weaving together a clash of civilizations and uncovering the moving tale of one man against an empire.
