ABOUT THIS BOOK

This historical novel tells the story of Tipu Sultan the man, the lover, the soldier, the prince, and the king. It speaks of those who loved and betrayed him; of charming ladies and brilliant men around him; of his greatness and of the crafty stupidity of his contemporaries; of the wit and folly of his times; and of the struggle of men and ideas when faced with the march of history.
