Be transported to the battlefields of Sudan, the backstreets of Edinburgh and the sultry tropics of Ceylon. And discover Sir Hector's tragic secret...In this enthralling tale of imperialism, sexuality and the nature of belief, Jake Arnott probes beneath the surface of Victorian conformity and captures a world trembling on the brink of a brutal new era.
