Review Text

In a sense, a sequel to Nightrunners of Bengal as Robin Savage, the son of Rodney Savage, continues the tradition of the British officer in India and follows in the footsteps of the father he hates. For Robin's nature is both dualistic and driven, and his search for the "truth"- on a metaphysical level- takes him across some 3000 miles of "desert, pamir, mountain and steppe" as he trails a Russian agent, Muralev, in whom he senses a strange, spiritual solidarity. It also separates him from Anne Hildreth, whom he loves if perhaps not equally, and who marries him in the face of his indecision as well as general suspicion when he is misjudged a coward. But it is finally Muralev who sends him back to Anne- if only for a time- and it is Anne who recognizes that he must be free- if their love is to survive......An adventure tale- of sorts- which is played out on two levels, to which the mystique of the east lends an aura only dubiously pukka.
