Summary
In 1841 at the age of twenty, Nigel Halleck set out for Calcutta as a clerk in the service of the East India Company. But he didn't settle into a long life as a bureaucrat during the Raj. After eight years serving in the name of empire, Nigel abruptly left the Company under a cloud and disappeared, stoking a family mystery that would reverberate through generations. Kief Hillsbery, Nigel's nephew many times removed, spent decades researching and traveling in his long-lost relation's footsteps in India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Nepal. He initially set out to solve the question of his family's black sheep, only to find a fascinating slice of hidden gay history. He discovered evidence of Nigel living happily with a Muslim companion, an exiled Afghan prince, as a permanent house-guest of a highborn Hindu in Kathmandu until his death
