KIRKUS REVIEW

Romantic adventure set in the sultry violence of India during the Sepoy Rebellion of 1854. Simon, banished to India by an angered English baronet father, seeks adventure but finds himself penniless, outlawed by the sahibs and in love with a general's daughter who turns him down. A quarrel sends him to the hill people, to kill a marauding tiger and lay groundwork for a fortune. Divided loyalties, Simon's love for an Indian chief's daughter, a battle with a rival, are following elements in the melodrama- superbly told and convincing-to-glamorous detail in the Indian background.
