Max, Nawab of Sirmoor, is educated, poised and charming. He is cool and emotionally uninvolved. But personal tragedy dissolves his cool detachment and demonstrates that life's best equations are not necessarily the simplest ones.

Max, the last descendant of an old aristocratic family of Hyderabad, was orphaned at an early age, brought up by a British governess and a regal old aunt, under the guardianship of a British official.

Little occurs to cloud or ruffle Max's smooth-sailing life. He slips with equal ease into a job at a tea-estate, and a romance with an English girl, not hesitating to break off the inconvenient relationship in order to marry suitably. But this marriage activates a curse with its roots in his family's past.

The author's flair for narration and his fluid style recreates a bygone world still largely untouched by happenings in society.
