Eli Sorensson happily boards a plane bound for India: to take a new job, and as he says himself "to live in truth" - although he, himself, finds it difficult to explain exactly what he means. But,
once installed in the Pink City of Jaipur, he not only discovers that the Future holds plenty of entanglements, but his Past doesn't seem willing to let him go, either. A timeless tale of romance
and murder set in modern India and the American Midwest.
