Description - The Nizam's Daughters by Allan Mallinson

Fresh from the battle of Waterloo, Matthew Hervey, newly appointed aide-de-camp to the Duke of Wellington, is sent on the most secret of missions to India. With the embers of war cooling to a precarious peace across Europe, Hervey must leave behind his newly affianced love, Henrietta, to travel across tempestuous seas to an alien land which, unbeknownst to him, will test his mettle to the very limits. The new Governor-General, Lord Hastings, seems intent on pursuing the opposite policy from that which the Duke's brother had so successfully employed a decade earlier. As tensions continue to rise unabated, the duke believes that the new government, and court of directors of the Honourable East India company, will soon be forced to remove Hastings and place himself in the post. Hervey is sent in advance to scout out the Indian situation and make the essential contacts the duke will need on his arrival. Hervey's destination is the province of Chintalpore, his mission to make contact with the Rajah, glean essential intelligence and forge lasting alliances. But the situation he finds is not as he expected. Chintalpore is in a perilous position, seemingly threatened from all sides. Fro
