Honorable Company: A Novel of India Before the Raj by Allan Mallinson

In a rousing follow-up to the critically acclaimedA Close Run Thing, Captain Matthew Hervey makes the hazardous sea voyage to India for what the Duke of Wellington has called deuced tricky work. As Wellingtons new aide-de-camp, Matthews covert mission will embroil him in the jostling of native potentates and Englands encroaching East India Company both threatened by lawless bands of horsemen bent on plunder and massacre. When Matthews journeying leads him to the small key state of Chintal, he thinks himself close to his objective. But at the rajahs sumptuous court, he discovers that war in India is waged as often with money and spies as with the clear-cut tactics of the battlefield with battles won through devious conversations and murderous perfidy. And Matthew, torn between his honor and his destiny, is drawn deeper into the courts serpentine coils than he ever dreamed....
